St. John’s Cadets are afforded the privilege of joining the Civil Air Patrol’s Howard Williams Composite Squadron. Meetings are held most Tuesday evenings in the Squadron headquarters at the Salina Regional Airport. Transportation to and from the meeting is furnished for the Cadets.

CAP Cadets receive training in Air Force Leadership, Aerospace Education, Character Development, and Emergency Services. They are issued Air Force style uniforms and afforded the opportunity to fly in powered and glider aircraft as well as the opportunity to participate in local, regional, and national Cadet activities. They may also earn the opportunity for activity scholarships, flight scholarships & college scholarships. More than 10% of the Air Force Academy Cadets got their start as Civil Air Patrol Cadets.

The Civil Air Patrol is the Congressionally Chartered official civilian Auxiliary of the United States Air Force.

The St. John’s point of contact is Civil Air Patrol Captain Douglas Dutton.
