The New York Wing Civil Air Patrol is the highest echelon of the Civil Air Patrol in the state of New York. Headquartered at Westchester County Airport campus in White Plains, New York, the New York Wing (NYWG) has 9 primary subordinate units located throughout the state to help it carry out its missions.
The missions include providing aerospace education and training for all of its members, teaching leadership skills to New York youth, and performing various domestic emergency services for the United States of America in a noncombatant capacity.
The Civil Air Patrol provides emergency services, which includes performing search and rescue and disaster relief missions; as well as assisting in humanitarian aid assignments. The CAP also provides Air Force support through conducting light transport, communications support, and low-altitude route surveys. The Civil Air Patrol also supports counter-drug missions.
The Civil Air Patrol offers a cadet program for youth aged 12 to 21, which includes aerospace education and opportunities, leadership education and training, formal Air Force style drill and ceremonies training, and Emergency Services training.
The New York Wing holds an annual Encampment for the cadet members, where for about a week cadets study drill, leadership, and teamwork in a basic training like environment under the mentorship of cadet staff and senior members. The New York Wing also holds a Flight Academy for cadets to learn to fly either a powered aircraft or a glider.
The Civil Air Patrol offers aerospace education for CAP members and the general public, including providing training to the members of CAP, and offering workshops for youth throughout the nation through schools and public aviation events.
