Welcome to the Pacific Region
TO ACCOMPLISH CAP MISSIONS FOR AMERICA BY EFFECTIVELY DEVELOPING AND SUSTAINING ALL ASSIGNED WINGS AS
"WINGS OF EXCELLENCE!"
Welcome to the electronic home of the Pacific Region, Civil Air Patrol. The real world region is made up of six beautiful western states of Alaska, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. These six states comprise over one million square miles of territory, making the Pacific Region the largest of the eight regions in Civil Air Patrol. Each of these states (or wings) has their own headquarters, command structure and many local or community level units of membership. The Pacific Region is very active in each of the Civil Air Patrol's primary missions of Aerospace Education, Cadet Programs and Emergency Services.
As the Air Force Auxiliary, Civil Air Patrol participates in numerous search and rescue missions, counter drug missions and disaster relief missions each year. Because of some of the harsh terrain and high elevations, the Pacific Region is one of the most active regions in emergency services, saving numerous lives each year. Civil Air Patrol has a very active, multi-faceted youth program - the CAP Cadet Program - and the Pacific Region supports some 3500 teenagers in the conduct of that program. These cadets participate in such activities as powered and glider flights, aerospace education, leadership and management education, and a structured self-discipline and self-responsible environment.
If you are interested in working with youth, in emergency services or in support of our countries homeland security and counter drug missions; then consider Civil Air Patrol. Please visit www.gocivilairpatrol.com, our national headquarters website or link to your state (wing) website and find the nearest unit or contact that wing headquarters address.
