How To Join Squadron 121

SENIOR MEMBER

Joining the Civil Air Patrol as an adult over 21 years old starts with you (a potential member) attending three meetings at our squadron.  They don't have to be back to back meetings.  We meet every Tuesday from 6:30 to 9:00 PM at 1975 Airport Drive.  This gives you a chance to check out our facilities, program, and people.  If we're a good fit for you, we have some paperwork for you to fill out.  We do an interview and take fingerprints.  Click Here for Senior Member Application
