Thank you for your interest in the St. Cloud Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol!

CAP is a private, non-profit corporation that was chartered by Congress on December 1, 1941. It is an all volunteer organization that is the official auxiliary of the United States Air Force.

CAP is chartered with three primary missions: Aerospace Education, Emergency Services, and Cadet Programs.

While CAP has long been associated with search and rescue missions, its work also includes disaster relief and communications, as well as counter drug and homeland security missions.

The St. Cloud Squadron is one of 23 squadrons that comprise the Minnesota Wing of the Civil Air Patrol, with more than 1,300 adult and cadet members and 17 light aircraft across the state.

The squadron holds weekly meetings at the National Guard Aviation Facility located near the St. Cloud Airport. Meetings are held each Monday at 6:30 p.m. and last for two hours.

 

The cadet program is available to those in the sixth grade or 12-years-old. The maximum age for entering the cadet program is 18. Those entering before age 19 may elect to remain a cadet until age 21 or become a senior member at age 18.

You may join the senior program at age 18 and remain as long as you want to contribute to the program.
