The Georgia Wing is a diverse group of cadet and adult volunteers that serve our communities, the State of Georgia 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 all the way down to local volunteer efforts in Georgia hometowns.
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 missionsfor 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 of Georgia, serving our communities, the State of Georgia 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 and the Georgia Emergency Management Agency. We are a 501c3 “not for profit” that does all of this using dedicated volunteers from all over the State of Georgia- from the coast to the mountains!
