On behalf of the women,
cadets of the Gainesville Composite Squadron, welcome!
The Civil Air Patrol is "Citizens
Serving Communities." We are the civilian arm of the US Air Force, and are
both a 501c(3) not-for-profit as well as a fully trained team of air crews,
ground teams and support staff. Our three missions are emergency services,
aerospace education and cadet programs, and our squadron supports all three
We maintain an
aircraft at the Gainesville airport (and other airports across the state) and
work closely with federal, state and local emergency management agencies.
We have a "can do" reputation and strive for excellence in all we do.
Ours is relatively new and growing
squadron, and we are always looking for volunteers who are interested in giving
back to their country and community while making new friends and learning new
skills. While many members are ex-military, and some are pilots, most are
not. But all of us have the same desire-- to serve our country, our
community and the state of Georgia.
We'd invite you to explore our
website to learn more about us, or visit one of our meetings.
We strive to
be a friendly, well-qualified team of dedicated volunteers who are well-trained,
mission ready and possess an attitude of service to others and to the community.
Thanks again for visiting, and
to see you soon.
Michael F. Paul, Captain, Commander
Composite Squadron GA-160
