The Civil Air Patrol (CAP) is the official auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force. Consisting of nearly 59,000 volunteer members, CAP serves the nation and local communities through Aerospace Education, Cadet Programs, and Emergency Services. Born in the days just prior to World War II, CAP now flies the world’s largest fleet of Cessna aircraft and conducts 85 percent of the inland search & rescue missions for the Air Force. CAP volunteers and aircraft also actively support local, state, and federal agencies in disaster relief and response.
Based out of Centennial Airport, the Black Sheep Senior Squadron (CO-162) of the Colorado Wing is one of the largest senior squadrons in Colorado. We offer diverse opportunities for pilots and non-pilots alike who are passionate self-starters looking for volunteer opportunities to serve. The national web site for Civil Air Patrol (gocivilairpatrol.com) describes in more detail who we are and what we do to execute our mission.
Adults are welcome to visit our biweekly squadron meetings held on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays,1900 – 2100 hours, at South Metro Fire and Rescue (9195 East Mineral Ave., Centennial, CO).
