Welcome to Civil Air Patrol's online application for cadet membership.

We ask that the prospective cadet and a parent or guardian complete this application together, if possible. If not, a parent or guardian can complete it on their own. The application takes about 10 minutes.

This application is available in English only but basic information about the CAP program is available en Espanol at capmembers.com/padres

We assume you have already visited your local CAP squadron. If not, please do not apply for membership but find the squadron nearest you and check out what they have to offer.

The initial cost of membership today ranges from $25.00 to $50.00, depending on the state. This online application accepts payments via Discover, Visa and Mastercard. You can also pay by check or money order if you print this application and present it, along with payment, to your local squadron commander.
