    Are you over 12 years or older and want to gain leadership skills, learn CPR, emergency services, radio communications and volunteer?

    Would you also like to learn about aerospace, rocketry, technology, flying and more?

    Come to one of our weekly meetings and see all what the Civil Air Patrol has to offer.

    Thousands of young people from 12 years through age 21 are introduced to aviation through CAP's cadet program. The program allows young people to progress at their own pace through a 16-step program including aerospace education, leadership training, physical fitness and moral leadership. Cadets compete for academic scholarships to further their studies in fields such as engineering, science, aircraft mechanics, aerospace medicine, meteorology, as well as many others.

    Youths 12 to 18 years old can develop leadership and technical skills, learn about aviation and enjoy training in search and rescue, model rocketry, physical fitness, sports, advanced technologies and much more.

    <p Adult members are part of a team of volunteers from all walks of life. Opportunities are available in writing, flying, radio operations, teaching, emergency services, finance, and much, much more.

    Westchester Cadet Squadron 1 is now meeting on FRIDAYS, 7-9 p.m., at AMERICAN LEGION POST 979, located at 40 Bell Road (Eastchester), Scarsdale, N.Y. 10583, located behind the Equinox building off of White Plains Road/Rt 22.
