"Supporting America's communities with emergency response, diverse aviation and ground services, youth development, and promotion of air, space and cyber power."
Our swuadront originally was based in Red Oak Iowa and moved to the Atlantic area around 10 years ago.
Our goal is to provide an excellent program to youth 12-18 years old teaching Aerospace, Emergency Services, Leadership and Character Development. Our youth participated in yearly Encampments, parades, Airshows, volunteer service, SARex, tours and meet with personnel in the Aerospace industry.
We are growing our Adult Program, adults are called Senior Members. In order to assist our communities in disaster relief or any Emergencies, we need to have volunteers qualified to be called upon. We offer the education and training needed. We are working on Urban Direction Finder, Mission Mgmt & Support, Ground Team, Search and Rescue, Disaster Relief & Preparedness, sUAS training, Aircrew Mission teams and more.
In 2022 our cadets have participated and served at Encampment, numerous parades, Fly-Ins, tours of aviation mechanic school, aviation museums and Colorguard activities.
