For Adults

 CAP Senior Membership


Welcome to the 

Union County Composite Squadron, where senior members train for and execute a variety of important CAP missions, and have a  group of  active cadets growing into the leaders of tomorrow.


CAP senior membership is open to adults at least 18 years of age. To prepare adult members for CAP’s special missions, extensive training and education in more than twenty different specialized fields is provided. In addition, technical training is offered in related areas, such as flight operations, emergency services and communications. Training in management and executive leadership is offered, as members progress in CAP’s professional development.


Some of the areas available for members to serve include:

Flight Instruction

Public Affairs

Search and Rescue

Disaster Relief



Information Technology

Aerospace Education


Civil Air Patrol's assets and resources include, but are not limited to, 530 corporate owned aircraft, almost 4,000 member-owned aircraft, 950 ground vehicles and the most extensive communications system in the world. However, the organization's most valuable asset is its volunteers. Including training, members log in excess of 100,000 flying hours each year.


However, you don't have to be a pilot to participate in the Civil Air Patrol. Members serve at many different levels and in many different capacities. One unique aspect of CAP is the training provided to help members fulfill the responsibilities of their jobs.


Senior Members can participate as either active or patron members of the organization. Businesses can support the Civil Air Patrol mission and the Leesburg Organization through a special membership program.


Senior membership is open to adults 18 years old and older. Active seniors:


  • Participate in search and rescue operations and homeland security
  • Assist federal agencies when disaster strikes
  • Work with youth through cadet programs
  • Support CAP's communications network -- the most extensive in the nation
  • Assist federal agencies in the war on drugs

Cadet Sponsor is a special membership category that allows parents, grandparents and legal guardians
to participate with their young relatives who are cadets. Cadet sponsors serve as chaperons and
provide transportation during squadron activities. They are offered discounted membership dues and
have a limited volunteer commitment.
