How to join the Civil Air Patrol in Los Angeles County


Unlike most organizations, joining the Civil Air Patrol will require a little bit of necessary effort. First we ask that you spend a little time, at least three meeting nights after you have found a squadron that best suits your needs. Each squadron "personality" is different.

The website will help you locate a local squadron.

Second there is an application process that includes fingerprinting. Since our program include a youth component, potential members are screened.

Last, there are application and yearly dues.

Please contact the squadron you chose to affiliate with regarding the details of membership application. You can find the nearest CAP Squadron, Group and Wing at
