Commander's Message

Welcome to the Indiana Wing of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP). Our wing is one of 52 wings that make up the CAP and one of six wings in the Great Lakes Region. This website is provided for the public to learn about our wing and many great things our members accomplish every day. Please explore the news, the history, and the other elements of this site to learn about the accomplishments of Civil Air Patrol in the State of Indiana.

Our wing is comprised of approximately 1,000 members. Of those members nearly half are Cadets active in the Cadet Program. Collectively, our members support the missions of CAP across the state. While search and rescue remains a core tenant of CAP capability, we support homeland security, counter-drug, and other Air Force assigned missions to serve our communities around the state. 

Indiana Wing pilots operate Cessna 172, Cessna 182, and Gippsland GA-8 aircraft. In addition to supporting the operational missions we are tasked with, Indiana Wing flies more than 1,000 orientation flights for CAP cadets, AFROTC cadets, and AFJROTC cadets. 

Again, thank you for visiting, please explore our site, and consider volunteering with Civil Air Patrol to serve your community and help advance the missions of Aerospace Education, Cadet Programs, and Emergency Services, that make this such an amazing organization.
