About

Welcome to The Bartow-Etowah Composite Squadron

Please feel free to visit our squadron on Thursday nights from 7:00 pm until usually around 9:30 pm. Since we are a composite squadron, we welcome both adult and youth, over the age of 12. As an adult member in our squadron you will have the opportunity to participate in many activities, including emergency services, flying and cadet educations. As a cadet in our squadron you have the opportunity participate in overnight search and rescue training, a week at summer encampment where you will have a chance to do several different activities, fly actual power aircraft and gliders, progress through a military style grade system as you build knowledge in the history of aviation and perform different physical training exercises.​

Whether you are an adult (Senior) member or a youth (Cadet) member, you have the reassurance of knowing that you are among some of the best and most talented people in your community. Civil Air Patrol was founded on service to the community and our nation. Today we still adhere to those same ideals, by performing community service events in our local communities, performing search and rescue missions for missing aircraft and people, and assisting our local governments in times of disaster. Our squadron is a small close net group of friendly dedicated people that share a common belief in helping others and we are always looking for new members that share our belief in that mission as well.
