The Concord Squadron of New Hampshire WingCivil Air Patrol is looking for people interested in becoming Airborne Photographers or Aerial Observers to serve their community as a member of the all-volunteer Auxiliary of the United States Air Force.
Airborne Photographers & Aerial Observers train as members of Civil Air Patrol (CAP) flight crews that are tasked with aerial photography, airborne search, or disaster assessment missions. Photographers and aircrew members act additional eyes in the sky, conducting visual searches and other duties as assigned. This aircrew specialty requires in-depth training in CAP operations and a volunteer commitment of regular training meetings and occasional weekend training exercises, which can take up to a year to accomplish.
If you’re up for the task, CAP offers ordinary citizens stimulating training opportunities that few people experience outside the military. The Concord Squadron is training and preparing its members in the skills necessary to meet our mission of providing important services to our communities in a time of need.
The Concord Squadron meets each Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the NH Army National Guard Armory (1 Minuteman Way, Concord). Visit our unit website at https://concord.cap.gov/.
Strong organizational and communication skills;
An interest in photography or aviation;
