Citizens Serving Their Community
|The Connecticut Wing of the Civil Air Patrol, US Air
Force Auxiliary, has a growing squadron in Meriden,
We provide the citizens of Central Connecticut with fully qualified and unpaid search and rescue aircrews, airborne photographers and humanitarian aid volunteers.
We have an award-winning cadet program that teaches respect, leadership and a military lifestyle.
We have a long history of volunteer service that predates World War II.
We work closely with federal, state and local agencies, and our members are fully FEMA certified and trained. We are fully equipped and actively fly missions using our Cessna aircraft based locally in Connecticut as well as using other Civil Air Patrol aircraft across the state.
We invite you to learn more about who we are and what we do for the citizens of Middlesex County and Central Connecticut.
For over 70 years, the Civil Air Patrol has been here to serve. Our volunteers meet every Monday. We meet from 6-8 pm.
Visitors and those who are considering joining the CAP are always welcomed at our meetings; meeting topics generally include training, safety briefings and topics of general information and interest.
