CAP offers ordinary citizens stimulating training opportunities few experience outside the military.
While the central focal point of our effort is training and preparation of aircrew for the Alabama Wing fleet, there are many roles available to non-flying members such as radio communications, logistics, planning, and mission staff participation.
Squadron meets the first Tuesday of each month at the Shelby County Services Building in Pelham.
We invite and welcome you to be our guest for an evening at one of our monthly squadron meetings. You'll also get a chance to meet some of our members who will discuss the organization and provide you with informational pamphlets and accompany you for the evening to answer any questions you might have about the Civil Air Patrol.

Established in 1941, Civil Air Patrol is the official auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force and as such is a member of its Total Force.

Often using innovative cellphone forensics and radar analysis software, CAP was credited by the AFRCC with saving 108 lives last year. CAP’s 56,000 members also perform homeland security, disaster relief and drug interdiction missions at the request of federal, state and local agencies. As a nonprofit organization, CAP plays a leading role in aerospace education using national academic standards-based STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education resources. Members also serve as mentors to over 23,000 young people participating in CAP’s Cadet Programs.
