Peachtree City- Falcon Field Composite Squadron GA-116 is a proud member of the
Georgia Wing of the
Civil Air Patrol. Since 1941, the Civil Air Patrol has been Semper Vigilans- "Always
Vigilant." We are truly "Citizens Serving Communities" through a wide
variety of methods, from conducting search and rescue for the US Air Force to
assisting local Emergency Management Agencies all the way down to local
volunteer efforts in Georgia hometowns.
We are the civilian arm of the US Air Force. We have an
award-winning youth program that promotes self-initiative,
discipline, leadership and personal growth and development. We perform
over 95% of all aircraft search and rescue missions for the Air Force, and
have saved thousands of
lives by providing well-trained, qualified air crews. We work closely with federal, state and
local governments, providing a wide range of much-needed services, and all of
this without fanfare or financial reward.
We provide humanitarian aid during natural disasters, work closely with state
and local emergency service agencies (law enforcement, fire, search and rescue)
as well as the US Department of Homeland Security
and the Georgia Emergency Management Agency.
We are a 501c3 "not for profit" that does all of this using
dedicated volunteers from all over the State of Georgia- from the coast to the
