The Alaska Wing of the Civil Air Patrol is a diverse group of cadet and adult volunteers that serve our communities, the State of Alaska and our nation. We are truly “Citizens Serving Communities” through a wide variety of methods, from conducting search and rescue for the US Air Force to assisting local Emergency Management Agencies. We are the civilian arm of the US Air Force– the Air Force Auxiliary. We have an award-winning youth program that promotes self-initiative, discipline, leadership and personal growth and development. We perform over 95% of all aircraft search and rescue missions for the Air Force, and have saved thousands of lives by providing well-trained, qualified air crews.

Chartered by Congress, we work closely with federal, state and local governments, providing a wide range of much-needed services, and all of this without fanfare or financial reward. Local Civil Air Patrol Squadrons are all across the state, serving our communities, the State of Alaska and America. We provide humanitarian aid during natural disasters, work closely with state and local emergency service agencies (law enforcement, fire, search and rescue) as well as the US Department of Homeland Security. We are a 501c3 “not for profit” that does all of this using dedicated volunteers from all over the State of Alaska.
