Air Operations

 

Most recognize the Civil Air Patrol for its reputation of locating downed aircraft around the country. However, the role of CAP is much greater and ever-expanding. Whether being the first aircraft to survey the World Trade Center site on 9/11, or testing the Western Air Defense Systems (WADS), CAP is an important partner in US security.

 

Named the Squadron of the Year for the western U.S., Squadron 112 is a civilian group of dedicated aircraft and ground support team members who continually strive to safely excel in a challenging environment.

 

And, yes non-pilots have a role in air operations.

 

Two of the three jobs in the aircraft (Observer and Scanner) are non-pilot roles.
