About Us

Welcome to Abilene Composite Squadron, Civil Air Patrol


The Civil Air Patrol is an Auxiliary to the United States Air Force and is part of the total force of the World's Premier Air Force.  

We are a fast-growing squadron of Senior Members, Aerospace Education Members, and Cadets.  Currently, we are a small unit with under 30 members, but we are growing.

We recently relocated to 4400 Buffalo Gap Rd, Suite 0100, Abilene, TX.  We would like to thank the building management for graciously allowing us to stay until such time we can find a location on an airport within our annual budget.



Since Civil Air Patrol’s formation during the earliest days of World War II, this vigilant organization of citizen Airmen has been committed to service to America. Founded on Dec. 1, 1941, to mobilize the nation's civilian aviation resources for national defense service, CAP has evolved into a premier public service organization that still carries out emergency service missions when needed — in the air and on the ground.

As a Total Force partner and Auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, Civil Air Patrol is there to search for and find the lost, provide comfort in times of disaster and work to keep the homeland safe. Its 60,000 members selflessly devote their time, energy and expertise toward the well-being of their communities, while also promoting aviation and related fields through aerospace/STEM education and helping shape future leaders through CAP’s cadet program.

Civil Air Patrol’s missions for America are many, and today’s adults and cadets perform their duties with the same vigilance as its founding members — preserving CAP’s 75-year legacy of service while maintaining its commitment to nearly 1,500 communities nationwide.
