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

“…Do you live by the core values? Do you help those other Airmen around you, beneath you maybe?”

Then you are a leader!

The definition of a leader…. “is simply someone who influences others in a positive way”.
