Cadets and senior members practiced their emergency services skills yesterday while training at a simulated missing person search during Virginia Wing, Civil Air Patrol's search and rescue exercise. Cadets participated in hasty and line searches, used a compass and maps to triangulate their field positions, practiced radio communications with mission base while CAP mission pilots and aircrews supported the ground teams in the air and provided much needed eyes in the sky! Fantastic day of training for all! #CAPcadets #MARVA141

General information

The Civil Air Patrol is an aviation oriented volunteer organization where young men and women can learn teamwork, leadership skills and have fun at the same time. Adult members can pursue interests in emergency services, as well as mentoring cadets in aerospace education and cadet programs. Many CAP members are not pilots, but for the pilot who wants to improve his or her skills, CAP will fill the bill. CAP not only participates in missions for the U.S. Air Force, but also partners with: Homeland Security, Coast Guard, Drug Enforcement Administration and many others. If this sounds like something you might be interested in, we'd love to have you attend one of our meetings.

Anyone here have any knowledge of Norfolk Squadron, from the early seventies
A great, quick Chain of Command / ES lesson from our friend Lt Col Scott Nicholson of Leesburg Composite Squadron. Pay attention Cadet Staff! I agree 100%
