Civil Air Patrol

News

The Indiana Wing of the Civil Air Patrol has a storied history dating back to 1941 when aviator Col. William Walker Winslow became its first commander. During the same time period, Stewart A. Joyce enters the Civil Air Patrol being sworn in at Stout Field and quickly joins the hunt for submarines in Atlantic City. Other aviators, including Margaret Ray Ringenberg who is a founder of the Fort Wayne squadron becomes a Women Airforce Service Pilot — and, Ms. Ringenberg was not alone, Grace Pulley from Indianapolis also became a member of the WASPs.

Over seventy years later, while changed, the Indiana Wing is still a group of volunteer aviation enthusiasts motivated by community service.
