“Supporting America’s communities with emergency response, diverse aviation and ground services, youth development, and promotion of air, space and cyber power.”
---Civil Air Patrol Mission Statement
CAP’s mission statement symbolizes who we are and why we exist. These are the essential jobs which we have been tasked to perform for America.
Civil Air Patrol’s resources are almost unparalleled by any other civilian search and rescue organization in the world today, boasting America’s largest privately owned fleet of single engine aircraft and the world’s largest privately-owned short-wave radio network. These, along with countless privately owned ground vehicles and over 61,000 members of all ages, provide a blanket of coverage spanning all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico/Virgin Islands. There are also CAP units attached to US military installations overseas, providing CAP’s cadet program to military family members around the world.
