News Release
Gorge Composite Squadron Open House -- Saturday, May 14 (Photo) - 04/29/24

HOOD RIVER, Ore., April 27, 2024 – Civil Air Patrol’s Gorge Composite Squadron will host an open house on Saturday, May 4, 2024, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at Ken Jernstedt Airfield, 3650 Airport Dr, Hood River, Ore. This is an opportunity for the public to learn more about exciting opportunities to serve the community in emergency services, aerospace education, and cadet programs. 

Members will be on hand to answer questions about joining Civil Air Patrol as a cadet, ages 12-18 or an adult member, age 18 and up. Parents, please attend with your interested cadet candidate(s). Also, on hand (weather permitting) one of Oregon Wing’s aircraft – a Cessna Model T206H, featuring a Garmin 1000NXI ‘glass cockpit’ avionics suite, for static display. 

Founded in 1941 and established as the official civilian auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force seven years later, Civil Air Patrol is chartered by Congress as a nonprofit organization for the purposes of youth development, aerospace education, and to promote general aviation. In an auxiliary role as a Total Force partner of the Air Force, CAP operates the world’s largest fleet of single-engine aircraft for search and rescue, disaster relief, training, and education. Civil Air Patrol is dedicated to serving America’s communities, saving lives, and shaping futures.
