Citizens Serving Their Community

The Georgia Wing of the Civil Air Patrol, US Air Force Auxiliary, has a new squadron in Gainesville, Georgia.

We provide the citizens of Northeast Georgia with fully qualified and unpaid search and rescue aircrews, airborne photographers and humanitarian aid volunteers.

We have an award-winning cadet program that teaches respect, leadership and a military lifestyle.

We have a long history of volunteer service that predates World War II.  (Click here to view a 31-page National Geographic Story from May 1956)

We work closely with federal, state and local agencies, and our members are fully FEMA certified and trained.  We are fully equipped and actively fly missions using our Cessna aircraft based locally in Gainesville as well as using other Civil Air Patrol aircraft across the state.


During the month of August 2015, the squadron cadet meetings will be held each Tuesday at the following location:

Chestnut Mountain Presbyterian Church
4675 Winder Highway
Flowery Branch, GA 30542

We invite you to learn more about who we are and what we do for the citizens of Hall County and Northeast Georgia.

For over 70 years, the Civil Air Patrol has been here to serve.  Our adult ("Senior") volunteers meet the first and third Tuesdays; our cadets (ages 12-20) meet every Tuesday. We meet from 7-9 pm.

Visitors and those who are considering joining the CAP are always welcomed at our meetings; meeting topics generally include training, safety briefings and topics of general information and interest.
