Welcome to the 42nd Composite Squadron

Little Rock Arkansas is home to the 42nd Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) - an auxiliary of the United States Air Force. We’re unique in that we use aviation as a cornerstone to serve our community. CAP operates one of the largest fleets of single-engine aircraft in the world, used to carry out missions dedicated to aerospace education, emergency services (by both land and air), and cadet (leadership) programs. We are part of more than 1,500 squadrons, with more than 60,000 volunteer cadet and adult members nationwide. Whether your interests are in flight training, aerospace, survival training, or just a desire to serve your local community – there is a place for you in the Civil Air Patrol!
