Lake Charles Squadron Civil Air Patrol

Description:

The Lake Charles Composite Squadron is a member of the Southwest Louisiana Mutual Aid Association and is called on to perform many support operations frequently. Civil Air Patrol not only responds to Aircraft related emergencies but also to plant accidents, train derailments, and natural disasters. With Slow Scan Image technology the squadron often provides the eyes in the sky for ground resources.

The Louisiana Wing of the Civil Air Patrol is a part of Armed Forces Civilian Auxiliaries and is composed of hundreds of civilian volunteers who donate their time and skills to perform missions for America. Formed just prior to World War II, Civil Air Patrol is the Official Auxiliary of the United States Air Force. In partnership with 1st Air Force, CAP and its 59,000+ members perform missions in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Louisiana Wing is the 25th largest Wing within CAP, having over 500 members in 2013. CAP broadly divides its missions into three areas: Emergency Services, Aerospace Education, and Cadet Programs.

Whether flying an aerial search mission for a missing hiker, providing aerial photos for damage assessment after a storm, or assisting with the distribution of supplies to disaster victims, CAP's Emergency Services personnel are there. In an effort to better our nation and our local communities, CAP serves as a resource for Aerospace Education for local and state educators. CAP provides personnel and information to assist with educational efforts promoting a knowledge of air, space, and aviation, including our TOP Flights Teacher Orientation Program, also known as the Fly A Teacher program. CAP also provides leadership, guidance, and a sense of duty and purpose for the young members of our Cadet Programs. Civil Air Patrol Cadets are taught a myriad of skills and life lessons, from how to read a map, to how to motivate and lead a team while accomplishing difficult goals. The lessons learned in the Cadet program will stay with a CAP Cadet long after they leave the program, and throughout their life will serve as guideposts to aid them in accomplishing all their future endeavors with integrity, respect, and excellence.
