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.

Cadet Programs

Aerospace Education

CAP's aerospace education efforts focus on two different audiences: volunteer CAP members and the general public. The programs ensure that all CAP members (seniors and cadets) have an appreciation for and knowledge of aerospace issues.

Sq51 promoted it's first cadet officer in over 5+ years. This is a major milestone for the unit in it's path to rebuilding it's cadet corp. Pictured in the first photo are; newly minted C/2d Lt Sofia Guzman (middle), 1st Lt Michael Garcia (left), and C/Maj Gunnar Gobel (right). The second photo is a prime example of why Senior Members participate in the Civil Air Patrol's Cadet Program -- the smile on C/2d Lt Sofia Guzman's face is priceless. Congratulations C/Lt Guzman! ... See MoreSee Less
