Why We're in the Civil Air Patrol (CAP)

Here's What Our Members Say!

Commander Ken Aronson: I wanted to improve my flying/aviation abilities.  Flying with CAP allows me to see and work with other experienced pilots which has been most helpful as I further my aviation career.  I am also able to use my organizing skills to help run the squadron.  I am also able to develop innovative ideas/programs that help our community at large.

Tony Sorce, IT: I joined to volunteer and fly, and support the mission of CAP.  I just finished my transport pilot training in our new Cessna Turbo 206, and I am looking forward to eventually flying missions.

Cadet Captain Gerald W.:  I joined CAP because I hoped to become a military aviator … the program has been incredibly meaningful to me because it has helped shape me as a leader and as a young man, and I largely charge it as responsible for the relative discipline and success I enjoy today.

Michael Kennedy, Public Affairs:  I enjoy belonging to a team that puts community first. The Civil Air Patrol is a volunteer organization dedicated to providing emergency response and youth development.

Rolann Aronson Aerospace Education:  My professional background includes 20 years teaching elementary age children about challenging subjects such as aerospace which helped us create the Mission to Mars Space Camp.

Jack Ellis, Communications, Aircraft Maintenance:   I wanted to find a way to put forty years of general aviation experience to use serving my community, my state and my country.  The squadron's radio station had fallen into disuse so I got involved in that project.  I was able to put thirty years of aircraft ownership experience to good use helping oversee the maintenance and operation of the Cessna 206 we fly.  There's no shortage of interesting things to get involved with.
