Welcome! The Springfield Composite Squadron is a proud unit of dedicated, skilled adult officers and cadets who volunteer their time and talents to perform missions for America. We promote and uphold the core values of Integrity, Volunteer Service, Excellence, and Respect.
OUR MISSION: We are a force multiplier for the U.S. Air Force, serving America's communities with
- Emergency Response using diverse aviation and ground services
- Cadet Programs youth development
- Promotion of Air and Space Power through aerospace education
Our forces conduct missions in search and rescue, disaster relief, homeland security, and counterdrug reconnaissance. Nationwide, we conduct 90 percent of all inland search-and-rescue missions tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center at Tyndall AFB. We build strong citizens for the future by providing leadership training and technical education to young men and women, ages 12 to 21, in the cadet program. Nationwide, our pilots log in excess of 100,000 flying hours each year. But you don't have to be a pilot to join! Many of our most important volunteer opportunities have nothing to do with flying!
CAP's assets and resources include our fleet of 550 aircraft, 900 ground vehicles, and the most extensive communications system in the world. CAP's most valuable assets are its volunteer members: 35,000 adult officers and 25,000 cadets nationwide!
As a member of CAP, you'll find that one of the best things about belonging to the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary is the number of opportunities and the corresponding on-the-job training made available to you to help you perform missions for America. We have jobs available in the following areas:
- Aerospace Education
- Cadet Programs
- Character Development
- Drug Demand Reduction
- Emergency Services
- Flight Operations
- Information Technology

- Public Affairs
- Recruiting and Retention
- Standardization/Evaluation (Flight Test Check-Pilot)
