1. Structure

Georgia Wing is the highest echelon of Civil Air Patrol in Georgia. GA Wing reports to Southeast Region CAP, who reports to CAP National Headquarters.

Below the Wing level, Georgia is divided into Groups. Each Group conducts its own training and programs, as well as participating in larger scale training and events with the rest of Georgia Wing, Southeast Region, and National CAP organizations.

Underneath each Group are numerous squadrons. Squadrons are the local level of organization, and squadrons typically meet weekly to conduct training. There are three types of Civil Air Patrol squadrons. A cadet squadron focus primarily on providing training and education for cadets. A senior squadron is a unit dedicated to allowing senior members to focus on CAPs missions. Composite squadrons have both cadets and senior members working together.

2.1. Schools Cadet Activities

See for more information on post-Encampment special activity events.

Encampment

This school is normally a week-long in-residence training program for cadets age 12-20, supervised by trained adult Cadet Programs Officers with USAF oversight. The encampment teaches basic cadets the fundamentals of followership and discipline in a fun environment that is both academic and applied, with hands on events. This course is typically held on a local military base see CAPR 52-16, Chapter 9 for more detail and typical activities may include supervised rappelling, orientation flights in military aircraft, tours of base units and facilities, etc. Encampment is NOT basic training; per CAPR 52-16 Ch.9, prospective encampment attendees must first complete promotion requirements for their first stripe Curry Award at their home unit, inclusive of passing physical fitness run/pushup/sit up/sit and reach standards, their first Leadership test, must have memorized the Cadet Oath, and must pass inspection for wear and grooming standards in both the USAF Blues and BDU uniform combinations. Encampment IS intended to provide cadets with a taste of military life intended to foster leadership growth and personal development in a positive, military style advanced training environment. Encampment completion is required for promotion to Cadet Officer and is also the required gateway activity to qualify cadets to then attend National Special Activities below.

Region Cadet Leadership School

RCLS is also a typically week-long course, offered for cadets in the grade of C/CMSGT and above per CAPR 52-16 Section 8-7. RCLS is similar to Air Force ROTCs Field Training program, focusing on developing advanced cadets leadership potential as indirect officer role leaders as opposed to direct enlisted/NCO leaders. This course involves both classroom instruction and applied leadership skills. and may be held within Georgia Wing or within a neighboring Wing of the Southeast Region.

Glider Flight Encampment

Glider Flight Encampments are held throughout the nation, and instruct cadets in the principles of flight, culminating in several rides with qualified instructors in an unpowered glider.

Powered Flight Encampment

Powered Flight Encampments instruct cadets in the basics of aviation. Cadets learn about ground and air procedures, as well as fly in CAP owned Cessna 172s and 182s. Cadets that do well during the program may earn their solo wings.
