|Welcome to the website for the Indiana Wing of the Civil Air Patrol, the United States Air Force Auxiliary. This site is a critical tool in communicating within our Wing. Take time to look around and see the resources that are available.
As the Commander, it is my honor to lead more than 1,200 senior members and cadets in Civil Air Patrol’s search and rescue, homeland security, counter drug, youth leadership development, and air and space science outreach activities in the State of Indiana.
The Indiana Wing operates nine powered aircraft, one hot air balloon, sixteen vehicles, two communication trailers, and a state-wide radio network and we steward more than $3 million worth of Air Force-provided assets. Our members are organized into four group headquarters units and 29 local squadrons and flights.
Indiana Wing is a unique wing within Civil Air Patrol, excelling at all three of Civil Air Patrol’s missions. We regularly fly nearly 1,000 hours of counterdrug surveillance flights each year, assisting in eliminating millions of dollars of drugs from Indiana’s streets each year. Our Cadet Program involves more than 650 cadets, and we currently host the largest cadet squadron in the Civil Air Patrol: the Anderson Preparatory Academy Cadet Squadron. Finally, each year Indiana Wing supports community outreach efforts through participation in several community aviation events and air shows throughout the state.
I thank you for your service to the Civil Air Patrol and encourage you to continue to find ways to participate in our great organization!
