Official Website of the Civil Air Patrol - Los Angeles Group 1

Los Angeles Group 1 is composed of ten member squadrons, all located within LA county. Each squadron has a different personality and focus. Members are all volunteers and Units are composed of Cadets, Seniors and in some cases both. Group 1 and its member squadrons all promote and further the three missions of the Civil Air Patrol (Aerospace Education, Cadet Programs, and Emergency Services). Together we are roughly 700 members strong and growing! We encourage you to give back to your community in a volunteer capacity by joining one of the ten squadrons located in Los Angeles County Group 1.

"The transformational leader sets the moral tone for his subordinates by the example of integrity he provides in both his official duties and in his private life. Honesty cannot be instilled by contract - but it may be enhanced by education about its importance to mission accomplishment and by example." - Brig. Gen. Malham Wakin, (USAF Ret.)
#CoreValues #Honesty #Integrity#Honesty and #integrity. This month the Civil Air Patrol Chaplain Corps focuses the #character development lesson on the #virtue of integrity. In this repost from 2016, retired USAF Brig. General Malham Wakin, emeritus professor of philosophy at the US Air Force Academy, talks about how to teach honesty to others. It is not by contract but by habituation and role modeling.

Civil Air Patrol operated many Fairchild UC-61/24s, and some aircraft were fitted with two 100-pound bombs for missions against German U-boats off the east coast of the United States in the early stages of the Second World War.Our Fairchild F24 over some typical SoCal river of cars. The F24 is more at home as it was used during the war by the Civil Air Patrol over the coastal waterways in anti-submarine observation. Tomorrow at 1PM, we will have a presentation on this and other utility aircraft in our inventory, their flight characteristics and wartime use. Attendees will have an opportunity to sit in the cockpit of these aircraft for a closeup look after the presentation. ... See MoreSee Less
