Welcome to the TAK Composite Squadron’s official website! TAK is part of the Western New York Group, New York Wing, and Northeast Region of the United States Air Force Auxiliary, Civil Air Patrol.

In Civil Air Patrol, throughout the Cadet Program, adolescents begin their journey from the ages of 12-21, and are taught Air Force style drill and military courtesies. Cadets also learn the wearing of Air Force uniforms, volunteer in community events, learn leadership skills, study aerospace modules and leadership chapters to earn promotions, and ultimately better themselves for the life they have ahead of them.



Founded December 1, 1941, Civil Air Patrol, also known as CAP, became the official Air Force Auxiliary on May 26, 1948, with the signing of the Public Law 557. CAP aided the U.S. in WWII participating in anti-submarine patrol warfare missions, border patrols, and messenger duties. After the war, Civil Air Patrol came to be a civilian auxiliary of the USAF. Today, CAP is located all over the States with over thousands of civilian volunteer senior members and cadets aiding in emergency services, learning to fly Cessna 172’s, and progressing throughout the Cadet and Senior Member Program to gain leadership skills and life skills for their very own future.


THE THREE MISSIONS OF CIVIL AIR PATROL:


  1. Cadet Programs

  2. Emergency Services

  3. Aerospace Education



CADET OATH:


I pledge that I will serve faithfully in the Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program and that I will attend meetings regularly, participate actively in unit activities, obey my officers, wear my uniform properly, and advance my education and training rapidly to prepare myself to be of service to my community, state, and nation.
