Civil Air Patrol was founded on 1 December 1941, and serves as the Auxiliary of the United States Air Force.

New Jersey Wing has over 1,000 members, consisting of cadets, who are between the ages of 12 and 21, and senior members, who must be over 18 years of age. Our members come from all walks of life, and most of them have an interest in aviation or the space program and enjoy helping our  cadets grow into the next leaders of America.
