Volunteers serving America’s communities, saving lives, and shaping futures.

Serving the local community since 1995, We are a full three-mission squadron and serve all three CAP missions: Emergency Services, Aerospace Education, and Cadet Programs.

Overlake prides itself on training and mentoring outstanding young leaders, effective team-players, and selfless citizens. Each year, Overlake members provide thousands of hours of community service in the Seattle Eastside area. In return for their hard work and dedication, exciting and one-of-a-kind opportunities in leadership, aerospace, travel, and flight are opened to them.

Civil Air Patrol is a non-profit volunteer organization formed in 1941. Currently comprised of over 55,000 members, CAP is congressionally chartered as the civilian auxiliary of the United States Air Force. It maintains a fleet of over 550 single-engine aircraft, which are used for search and rescue, disaster relief, cadet flight training, and tasks. The three missions which Congress has tasked Civil Air Patrol with are cadet programs, aerospace education, and emergency services.

Washington Wing Civil Air Patrol

The Civil Air Patrol's Washington Wing (abbreviated WAWG) is the highest echelon of the Civil Air Patrol in the state of Washington. Its headquarters are located in Pierce County, Washington at McChord Field at Joint Base Lewis–McChord near Tacoma, Washington.[4] Washington Wing oversees 27 primary subordinate squadrons located throughout the state.[5]

Locally, Washington Wing Civil Air Patrol members operate a fleet of 23 vehicles and 14 aircraft (Cessnas 172s, 182s, and a 206, as well as 2 Blanik gliders) for inland search and rescue missions and cadet orientation flight instruction. Washington members contributed a value of $4.9 million in volunteer hours to their local communities and the state of Washington in 2016. In April 2018, Washington Wing installed the first female to reach the grade of Colonel, Shelly J. Norman [6] as Wing Commander in a change of command ceremony in Wenatchee, Washington.[7]

The Washington Wing performs the three missions of the Civil Air Patrol: providing emergency services; offering cadet programs for youth; and providing aerospace education for both CAP members and the general public.[9]

Emergency services[edit]

The Civil Air Patrol provides emergency services, which includes performing search and rescue and disaster relief missions; as well as assisting in humanitarian aid assignments. The CAP also provides Air Force support through conducting light transport, communications support, and low-altitude route surveys. The Civil Air Patrol can also offer support to counter-drug missions.[10]

In March 2021, as a part of Civil Air Patrol's response in combating the COVID-19 pandemic, members of Washington Wing provided support at three vaccine point of distribution.[11]
