Would you like to honor and serve
America, the State of Georgia and your local community? Do you want to prepare
for the future while making new friends? Then
to the challenge of cadet membership in the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary, Civil Air
Cadets fly, learn to lead, hike, camp and push themselves to new limits,
including regularly scheduled meetings and monthly super activities. If your
goal is a career in aviation, space, or the military, CAP's cadet program
be for you.
Civil Air Patrol Cadets wear CAP
Distinctive Air Force-style uniforms (identical to Air Force uniforms with
distinctive CAP insignia). Our program gives cadets hands-on leadership
experience and education. The key here is "hands on"!
Our Cadets are provided real
opportunities to sample military lifestyles presented to them in many formats
ranging from participation in a color guard to going to week-long 'encampments'
on military installations. Other activities include search and rescue
exercises, our cadet aircraft orientation ride program,
air shows and other opportunities to gain practical experience.

provide you with a nationally-recognized, award-winning program for youth, that

month, on average. How much can you achieve? Become a Civil Air Patrol
