Calhoun, Georgia: Civil Air Patrol looking for new members

For those with an adventurous spirit and an interest in flying, the Civil Air Patrol might be right down your alley.

The Calhoun Composite Squadron #134 of the Civil Air Patrol-U.S. Air Force Auxiliary has openings for a safety officer, communications officer, and emergency services officer, among others.

Cadet slots (ages 12-17) are also open.

Civil Air Patrol members learn about aerospace topics, receive Air Force approved training, and emergency management procedures.

Members also participate in search and rescue missions and in disaster relief, among other duties.

If a plane goes down in north Georgia, the Air Patrol is called in to work with local Federal Emergency Management (FEMA) to help find the plane,” said Cpt. Hayden Collins of Calhoun Composite Squadron #134.

The Calhoun Composite Squadron meets at the Tom B. David Calhoun Airport on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

For more information please attend a meeting for orientation or contact Capt. Hayden Collins; or visit
