Become a Friend of CAP



Become a Friend and Supporter of Civil Air Patrol….

Every day Civil Air Patrol members are flying missions in support of the Air Force and other government agencies, conducting weekly youth development programs and supporting teachers and schools with aerospace education and STEM curriculum and materials.  Over 58,000 citizens volunteer to do this.

Many citizens want to support the great work of Civil Air Patrol but simply don’t have the time to make the commitment as a member.  Becoming a Friend of CAP allows you to support CAP’s service to our communities and nation.
