Join us to learn how your child can be an active member of C.A.P.! We promote Integrity, Excellence, Service and Respect. Cadet members help with Emergency Services (including search & rescue), learn to fly both gliders and power planes (5 free orientation flights in each; inexpensive certified training after that), develop leadership skills, learn customs and courtesies, and improve their physical fitness.

It was a beautiful, sunny day on Saturday when Civil Air Patrol (CAP) pilots Col. Dick Holder and Maj. Lon Kelly came to Delta with their sleek, white Schleicher glider. Coming from the Eielson CAP unit, they brought their glider and tow plane down to give orientation rides to the cadets of our new ‘Delta Force’ CAP squadron located in the hanger at Allen Army Airfield, Fort Greely.
Finally, when all preparations were complete, they started launching the cadets into the sky. For most, it was there first time in a glider and they were excited to say the least. Each cadet got about 25 minutes soaring in the skies above Delta enjoying the spectacular view and listening to the air as it slipped over the canopy. There were a lot of smiling faces coming out of the cockpit at the end of their rides.
Glider and powered aircraft orientation rides are part of the overall flight training program the CAP makes available to our cadets. It is the mission of the CAP to inspire and teach our young members through aerospace education and training. Please contact Capt. Stephen Staska at 895-2055 for more information.
The 27th Delta Force Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) recently conducted a Search and Rescue (SAR) training exercise at Fort Greely to acquire survival skills and inspection techniques.
Under the supervision of Squadron Commander 2nd Lt. Byron Smith, M. Brian McElroy, Emily Schenk, and Mr. Rocky Senatore, the CAP cadets received an inspection of their “24hr BAG” which is a requirement for the cadets to participate in a live Search and Rescue mission. In addition the senior leaders lead cadet teams on a compass course around Fort Greely. “This hands on event creates a great learning opportunity and the fact the kids have a great time is icing on the cake” said MSgt Baugh. The Cadets reported this was a great event and they had fun while learning!
