The 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 mountains!
