ERMA - The Cape May Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol recently moved into Building 7 at Cape May County Airport thanks to generosity of the County of Cape May and, in particular, Freeholder Director Gerald Thornton.
The Civil Air Patrol is the auxiliary to the Air Force, forming in 1941 at Bader Field, Atlantic City.
Cape May Composite Squadron provides inland search and rescue services using a Cessna 172 based at Cape May County Airport. It also offers a cadet program for 12 to 20-year-olds offering leadership and flight opportunities.
After transitioning to the new building, the squadron took delivery of an FAA-certified flight simulator donated by local veterinarian Dr. Nick Holland.
The squadron meets weekly on Thursdays between 6:45 p.m. to 9 p.m. and many weekends during the year for squadron training exercises.
New cadets (12 to 20 years old) and senior members (over 18) are welcome, including qualified FAA pilots. For information, visit the squadron website or contact Squadron Commander Capt. Andrew Baron at firstname.lastname@example.org.
