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

Civil Air Patrol - Los Angeles Cadet Squadron 138

#Sqdn138 #Sq138CAP1 December marks the 77th Anniversary of Civil Air Patrol. This is always an appropriate time to honor our proud heritage. Each Civil Air Patrol member today --- officer or cadet, long-time member or brand new --- stands in a long blue line, a line that stretches back eight decades to the founding of Civil Air Patrol. That long line stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from North to South, and includes members who volunteered for Coastal Patrol and Tow Target missions, as well as many more mundane missions. Since 1941, each of us have supported our community, state and nation in countless ways, both large and small.

Gill Robb Wilson stood at the head of this same line. His autobiography, “I Walked with Giants”, closes with this paragraph: “As for my own part in conceiving and founding CAP, I can only note that I had unique opportunity to foresee coming events and was in a responsible position to do something about it. If I did play some part it was because I was surrounded by giants of great spirit who gave me their confidence and upheld my hands. To have walked proudly with them is all the credit I need or want…. It was those who succeeded me who hewed out the greater destiny of Civil Air Patrol.”

All of us should take pride in our heritage, and help continue that long blue line for many years to come.

Happy 77th Anniversary!
