Welcome to the New Jersey Wing Aerospace Education Page! The materials and links we have included will be helpful to Cadets and Senior Members, Educators, and Aerospace Education Officers.
Civil Air Patrol is a nonprofit, humanitarian corporation established in 1941 and chartered by Congress in 1946. It is also the official auxiliary of the United States Air Force. Public Law 476 established Civil Air Patrol's objects and purposes as follows: "Provide an organization to encourage and aid American citizens in the contribution of their efforts, services, and resources in the development of aviation and in the maintenance of air supremacy, and to encourage and develop by example the voluntary contribution of private citizens to the public welfare. Provide aviation education and training especially to its senior and cadet members; to encourage and foster civil aviation in local communities and to provide an organization of private citizens with adequate facilities to assist in meeting local and national emergencies."
CAP accomplishes its aerospace education mission in a variety of ways, including both an internal and external program as well as sponsorship of the National Congress on Aviation and Space Education (NCASE). Our goal for NCASE is to provide educators with the latest hands-on techniques and tools to help them capture the imaginations of their students. CAP promotes the use of aerospace themes to help educators excite and motivate their students to excel in science, math, technology, language arts, social studies, plus other traditional subjects.
