The Central Missouri Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol had an open house Saturday at Elton Hensley Memorial Airport for its Cadet Program, an Air Force auxiliary program designed to impart leadership and a love of aviation in youth.
A nonprofit organization, the CAP operates as an all-volunteer civilian auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force when performing services such as search and rescue or survey missions for the federal government. The CAP operates seven planes in Missouri — one of which hangers in Fulton.
“We want to raise awareness about the Civil Air Patrol and recruit adult volunteers who want to know what they can do about anything from helping youth to search and rescue in a disaster situation,” Aerospace Education Officer Kathi Jantz said.
