Squadron 51 welcomes youth, adults, pilots, educators, and patrons. There are opportunities for committed individuals who want to serve their community, develop lifelong skills, and build meaningful relationships.
Youth (ages 12-20)
Join as a Cadet and learn about aerospace, aviation, pilot training, as well as leadership skills that will benefit you for the rest of your life. Cadets advance through a 16-step program and are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities such as survival training, rocket building, flight encampment, air shows, etc. For more information about Cadet membership, visit the CAP website.
Through Civil Air Patrol, your teen will develop responsibility, confidence, discipline, and respect with military customs and courtesies. As a supportive parent, you are also encouraged to join as a Cadet Sponsor or Senior Member. Cadet Sponsors chaperone activities and assist the adult members in support of the Cadets. Senior Members take a more active leadership role within the squadron. To find out more about your involvement as a parent, check out the CAP website.
