ABOUT CAP
 

Since Civil Air Patrol’s formation during the earliest days of World War II, this vigilant organization of citizen Airmen has been committed to service to America. Founded on December 1, 1941, to mobilize the nation's civilian aviation resources for national defense service, CAP has evolved into a premier public service organization that still carries out emergency service missions when needed — in the air and on the ground.

As a Total Force partner and Auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, Civil Air Patrol is there to search for and find the lost, provide comfort in times of disaster and work to keep the homeland safe. Its 60,000 members selflessly devote their time, energy and expertise toward the well-being of their communities, while also promoting aviation and related fields through aerospace and STEM education, and helping shape future leaders through CAP’s cadet program.


ABOUT NEW JERSEY WING

New Jersey was the "Birthplace of Civil Air Patrol" in 1941, with CAP's "Coast Patrol Base 1" located at Bader Field, in Atlantic City.

Today, New Jersey Wing has over 1,350 members,
 consisting of cadets, who are between the ages of 12 and 21, and senior members, who must be over 18 years of age.

Our members come from all walks of life, and most of them have an interest in aviation or the space program and enjoy helping our cadets grow into the next leaders of America.
