CAP’s aerospace mission provides aviation and space education and training to cadets, senior members and the general public. CAP also educates its members and the general public on the important role aviation and space play and will continue to play in America’s future. Additionally, CAP encourages our nation’s youth to consider aerospace careers and promotes civil aviation to local communities. The US Congress and the USAF bestowed this responsibility on CAP, and this mission is accomplished through implementation of aerospace education programs by CAP volunteers.
