Who We Are

Orange County Cadet Squadron is a local unit of the Civil Air Patrol. While there are many youth oriented programs in America today, Civil Air Patrol's cadet program is unique in that it uses aviation as a cornerstone. Young people progress at their own pace through a program that includes aerospace education, leadership training, physical fitness and moral leadership.

Our Squadron is based at Stewart Air National Guard Base and meets year-round.  We have weekly meetings on Tuesday evenings and additional activities on weekends and during the summer.

Thinking of joining the Civil Air Patrol?  

If you are between the ages of 12 to 18 and have an interest in aviation, space, community service and/or the military, than this is the program for you!  Visit our guide for first time visitors for more information.
