Join the Civil Air Patrol
The Civil Air Patrol's legacy lives on in today’s all-volunteer force, which contributes greatly to America’s defense by providing aerial reconnaissance for homeland security, giving Air Force fighter pilots practice in protecting America’s airspace and helping train U.S. military troops for service overseas.

CAP members also make a profound difference in more than 1,500 communities across the nation, saving lives through search and rescue and other emergency services and conducting aerospace education and youth programs that help develop the nation’s next generation of leaders.

Civil Air Patrol’s contributions to national defense was recognized when the U.S. Air Force added the longtime Air Force Auxiliary to its Total Force team . Changes to Air Force doctrine officially made Civil Air Patrol a strategic partner of the Air Force and CAP members “Airmen” when conducting Air Force-assigned missions.

Gen. Mark A. Welsh announced the official recognition of the Civil Air Patrol as the fourth member of the Air Force Total Force team. The official recognition reflects CAP’s key and continuing contributions to the Air Force mission working with the Active, Guard and Reserve components to provide the Air Force with a full spectrum of distinct and complementary capabilities. The 58,000 CAP members fly more than 100,000 flight hours per year in support of this mission, providing emergency services, aerospace education, and cadet programs for youth 12-20 years old, and will now be able to proudly call themselves Airmen while supporting the Air Force mission.
