Aurora Composite Squadron

Civil Air Patrol

Oregon Wing

Welcome to the Aurora Composite Squadron Website

Place

Approximately 20 Civil Air Patrol cadets, ages 12-18, from Clackamas, Washington, Multnomah and Marion Counties attend Aurora Squadron's weekly meetings for training and activities that focus on youth leadership.

Our cadets receive structured training with materials derived directly from the United States Air Force, Military Academies, and Air Ground Schools. This program provides learning opportunities in a safe, challenging, and real-life environment. Skills are developed in teamwork, public speaking, improved study habits, organization, and task completion. Exercise is encouraged through physical training. In addition, we stress the value of America’s military, and the importance of its air-power and science programs, through our aerospace education classes.

Our ultimate goal in training these youth is to shape them into our nation’s future leaders. We desire to see them become functioning members of society utilizing themselves to their full potential. Please join us in this valuable endeavor.
