Even with the Corona Virus quarantine, there are tasks you can complete to become a CAP Volunteer, let us assist you. Recently Alabama Wing has been flying Covid-19 missions and we are always looking for volunteers dedicated to providing their time to train and conduct these missions.

The Gadsden Composite Squadron meets Tuesday's from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the North Alabama Regional Airport.
