There are more than 64,000 members of the Civil Air Patrol. In all, members of the CAP fly more than
100,000 hours each year performing important missions.
The CAP was formed in the early 1940s as an all-volunteer organization. Today the CAP continues to provide urgent
search and rescue flights, air and ground support for
disaster relief, flying officials and staff to remote locations, transporting essential medical supplies to accident sites and
performing aerial damage assessment.
In our newest add-on Civil Air Patrol Pilot, we bring to users of Microsoft Flight Simulator some of the many important operations that these
volunteers fly each and every day. Using Flight Simulator theyll fly some of the same missions performing critical tasks that keep the
CAP such an essential part of the our nations resources.
