Recently Alabama Wing has been transporting Covid-19 tests in both airplanes and vans on missions and we are always looking for volunteers dedicated to providing their time to train and conduct these missions. Do you have a desire to volunteer and serve your community a few evenings per month?
As a volunteer with the CAP you can participate in Search and Rescue missions, training exercises; and disaster relief efforts as part of the Auxiliary to the USAF. If that isn't your thing we also have opportunities in Aerospace Education, sUAS (drones), Aerial Photography, Pilot, Scanner, Observer, Logistics, Planning, Public Affairs, and Communications/Radio Operator. We have MANY opportunities to chose from.
If you’re up for the task, CAP offers ordinary citizens stimulating training opportunities few experience outside the military.
Our volunteer members train diligently to acquire the life-saving and emergency service skills necessary to assist Federal and State humanitarian agencies when disaster strikes; participate in search and rescue missions; and help keep communities safe through homeland security effort.
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. The following local Squadron is constantly training and preparing their members for the skills necessary to provide emergency services to the public in a time of need: Huntsville Senior Squadron meets the second and fourth Thursday 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Madison, Alabama. *Note: Squadrons may be virtual. We invite and welcome you to be our guest for an evening at one of our weekly squadron meetings. You'll get a chance to meet some of our members who will discuss the organization and provide you with information pamphlets and answer any questions you might have about the Civil Air Patrol.
