We are the Medina County Skyhawks composite squadron of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP), the civilian auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force.  Both young cadets (ages 12-21) and adults have the opportunity to join our elite group of dedicated volunteers –  people making a difference in the lives of their fellow countrymen as  “Citizens Serving Communities”.

What is the Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program?
While there are many youth oriented programs in America today, Civil Air Patrol’s (CAP) cadet program is unique. The program allows young people to progress at their own pace through a 16-step program including aerospace education, leadership training, physical fitness and moral leadership.  Cadets compete for academic scholarships to further their studies in fields such as engineering, science, aircraft mechanics, aerospace medicine, meteorology, as well as many others. Not planning on entering the military? There is no obligation to pursue a military career, and the Civil Air Patrol will still be a great achievement to add to your college application or resumé. Adults can be mentors to the cadets, and participate in all activities in the squadron.
