Exciting activities are planned for your local Civil Air Patrol groups of Skagit Composite Squadron, United States Air Force Auxiliary.  The weather is allowing for more outdoor activities and we have several upcoming events planned.  On 6 April 2019, our cadets will be participating in Civil Air Patrol’s Orientation Flight Program at Skagit Regional Airport.  The program is designed to introduce cadets to general aviation through hands-on flight experiences in single-engine aircraft.  On 13 April, we will be manning a recruiting booth at Heritage Flight Museum’s Fly Day, Skagit Regional Airport.  Also at Skagit Regional, cadets and accompanying senior members will see a live US Navy Search and Rescue helicopter demonstration on 17 April.  Cadets will be able to get inside the aircraft as well as view from the ground an in-air demonstration of helicopter search and rescue.  On 1 May, we will be at NAS Whidbey for participation in Navy 3rd class swim qualifications.  Facilitated by Navy divers and personnel, the training consists of basic water safety, including how to use clothing as a flotation device.  Interested in aerospace, search and rescue, and community service?  We are looking for adult senior members as well as cadet members, ages 12-18.  The Concrete group of Skagit Composite Squadron meets all but the first Tuesday of the month at 6pm, Concrete High School; the Burlington group meets at Skagit Regional Airport, Tuesdays at 6pm.  Email inquiries can be sent to kelly.siebecke@wawg.cap.gov or the squadron commander at robert.shupe@wawg.cap.gov – 2d Lt.
