CAP’s Three Missions

The Civil Air Patrol Pacific Region is made up of the six beautiful western states of Alaska, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. These six states comprise over one million square miles of territory, making the Pacific Region the largest of the eight regions in Civil Air Patrol.

Each wing (state) has its own headquarters, command structure, and many local or community level units of membership. The Pacific Region is very active in each of the Civil Air Patrol's primary missions of Aerospace Education, Cadet Programs and Emergency Services.

As the Air Force Auxiliary, Civil Air Patrol participates in numerous search and rescue missions, counter drug missions, and disaster relief missions each year. Because of an abundance of harsh terrain and high elevations, the Pacific Region is one of the most active regions in Emergency Services, saving numerous lives each year.

Civil Air Patrol cadets participate in activities such as powered and glider flights, aerospace education, leadership, and management education in an environment of self-discipline and self-responsibility.

If you are interested in working with youth, in emergency services, or in support of our country's homeland security and counter drug missions then consider Civil Air Patrol. Visit gocivilairpatrol.com to find the unit nearest you.
