Civil Air Patrol Virtual was started in November 2019 by Alec Henderson. It received it’s IFVARB certification on November 17, 2019. Our amazing COO can be found at @TheAwesomeAaronShow. The real life Civil Air Patrol is an auxiliary of the United States Air Force. They conduct mainly search and rescue operations over U.S. homeland. CAP also has cadet programs for children and teens.

CAPVO operates many different types of missions and variety is key here. All of our pilots will take part in regional flying (to simulate orientation flights and other short operations), group flights, and even specialized missions coordinated by staff on our Slack.

15 PM

Our fleet consists of a variety of GA aircraft. While trying to keep the fleet as close as possible to the real life CAP, we wanted our pilots to have more to enjoy when flying our aircraft.

Cessna Aircraft
Cessna 172 Skyhawk
Cessna 208 Caravan

All of our aircraft will be assigned at different ranks. The first to be unlocked is the XCub, next the C172, and then the C208.

Thank you very much!

Uhh, Isn’t there already a CAPVA? It’s a part of IFGAF?

No I don’t think so. You can PM me with any further questions though and I may be able to direct you to my recruiter.

If you want to replicate the whole Civil Air Patrol experience, you’ll have to include an over complicated flight release system as well!

This is so unbelievably cool! I will be applying for sure! Do you need an active Pro subscription? I would think not, since you can fly for a while in the regions, and you do have access to all of the aircraft.

It says to have an Infinite Flight Pro Account, but you recently had one and there’s regions, is there one near your base? @Alaska096

I actually am part of a CAP squadron in Alaska. Unfortunately, I am not sure if I will be able to renew my subscription. I really, really, really do want to be a part of this wonderful virtual organization. I hope it’s okay that I may not be able to renew my subscription. I am a very realistic pilot, and I wouldn’t do anything stupid.

If I cannot apply without a subscription, I understand

I’ll talk to the staff and see what I can do. Thank you for the enthusiasm!

Thank you so much!

If it helps, I’m not sure if you know totally how CAP works, but there are squadron’s everywhere, in every state. Most squadron’s fly within a certain distance of their home airport. I’m sure not having a subscription would be fine for the type of operations that CAP does :)
