Civil Air Patrol


   Welcome to the web site of Greenville Composite Squadron, a unit of Civil Air Patrol (CAP), the official civilian auxiliary of the United States Air Force. Greenville Composite Squadron is based in Greenville, South Carolina, and primarily serves Greenville County, the Upstate and the surrounding region. Greenville Composite Squadron is a component of the South Carolina Wing, under the Middle East Region of Civil Air Patrol.

   Civil Air Patrol (CAP) was founded one week before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December, 1941. It was the vision of more than 150,000 citizens who were concerned about the defense of America's coastline. Under the jurisdiction of the Army Air Forces, CAP pilots flew more than one-half million hours, were credited with sinking two enemy submarines and rescued hundreds of crash survivors during World War II.

On July 1, 1946, President Harry Truman established CAP as a federally chartered benevolent civilian corporation. On May 26, 1948, Congress passed Public Law 557, making CAP the auxiliary of the new United States Air Force (USAF). CAP was then charged with three primary missions aerospace education, cadet programs and emergency services.

Cadet meetings take place Monday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Senior (adult) member meetings take place on the first and third Tuesdays of the month from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. Most meetings are held at the squadron headquarters, 11 Airport Road Extension, Greenville, at the South Ramp of Greenville Downtown Airport (GMU) and adjacent to the Runway Cafe and Runway Park. Note: Some meetings may take place in the hangar of Runway Cafe. See calendar or contact squadron officers below for current information.
