The Civil Air Patrol Highlander Composite Squadron is a composite squadron which means it's members consist of both cadets ranging from 12 to just under 21 years of age, and senior members (Active Adult Members) 18 years of age and up.
Civil Air Patrol (CAP) is a volunteer, non-profit organization that also serves as the civilian auxiliary to the U.S. Air Force. Our three missions are to develop youth through a cadet program, educate Americans on the importance of aviation and space, and perform live-saving humanitarian missions.
CAP is not a military or boarding school, but a youth development program that incorporates aviation and military customs and courtesies. To fulfill its goal of developing young people into responsible citizens and aerospace leaders, the Cadet Program is developed around five program elements: Leadership, Character Development, Aerospace Education, Physical Fitness, and Activities. As cadets participate in these five elements, they advance through a series of achievements, earning honors and increased responsibilities along the way.
Though Civil Air Patrol is known for its flying missions, CAP adults members, known as Senior Members, do so much more than just fly. In fact less than a fifth of all CAP members are pilots or aircrew members. CAP adult members come from all walks of life. Some are doctors, nurses, paramedics, or other medical professionals. Others are lawyers, paralegals, accountants, computer programmers, and other business professionals and executives. Really just about any career or background can be useful to and found in the ranks of the CAP adult membership. CAP supports a variety of missions that require adults from all walks of life.
CAP Senior Members can participate in emergency services and operations not only as aircrew members, but as ground team members as well. CAP also needs adults to support the cadet program and it's aerospace education program.
