Mission Statement:

Supporting America's communities with emergency response, diverse aviation and ground services, youth development, and promotion of air, space and cyber power.

Primary Programs:

Civil Air Patrol is the official, Congressionally chartered auxiliary of the United States Air Force. Our mission encompasses roles involving emergency services such as search-and-rescue and disaster response, youth development in the form of CAP's cadet program, as well as aerospace education for our own members, the public, students, cadets and teachers.

Currently, the over 1,000 CAP members in New Mexico are of many ages and from all walks of life. From cadets joining middle-school squadrons to complement their math, science, aviation or military interests to retirees who look to continue to give back to their state and country, there are many opportunities for CAP volunteers in the Land of Enchantment.

CAP squadrons are based in communities across the state such as Alamogordo, Albuquerque, Belen, Clovis, Edgewood, Farmington, Las Cruces, Los Alamos, Los Lunas, Rio Rancho, Roswell, Santa Fe, Socorro and Taos. Currently the New Mexico Wing has 13 aircraft in its fleet.
