The Civil Air Patrol is the volunteer, civilian auxiliary of the United States Air Force, and was formed December 1, 1941, as an emergency measure to make civil aviation aircraft and pilots available to the national defense effort.
Today, the Civil Air Patrol conducts search missions for missing aircraft, provides emergency disaster relief in conjunction with other relief organizations, and encourages and fosters civil aviation in local communities through adult and youth education programs.
