We are the official auxiliary of the United States Air Force and are a multifunctional volunteer organization that serves America with a spirit of dedication and commitment. Each year Civil Air Patrol provides more than 85% of inland search and rescue support as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center at Langley AFB, VA.

In addition, CAP volunteers repeatedly respond to calls from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the American Red Cross when disaster strikes in the form floods, hurricanes, forest fires or other disasters, natural and man-made.

Equally important is the work we do with the youth of America. Civil Air Patrol Cadet Programs provides young men and women, ages 12-21, with a safe and motivating environment in which to grow and explore opportunities in the military and aviation industries. CAP presents an alternative life style to drugs and teenage violence, thus giving thousands of young people the opportunity to embrace the leadership roles of the 21st century with confidence and determination. Thunderbird Squadron has a long tradition of excellence in Texas and nationally.
