The Maine Wing Civil Air Patrol is Maine’s civilian auxiliary of the United States Air Force. Founded in 1941, CAP originally assisted the War Department by defending the coastline of the United States during World War II. Two of those Coastal Patrol bases were located in Maine, Base 19 in Portland and Base 20 in Trenton. The Civil Air Patrol was federally chartered as a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation in 1946.

Today the group’s mission is to serve America by developing the nation’s youth; accomplishing local, state, and national missions in Air Search and Rescue, Disaster Relief, and Homeland Security; and educating citizenry to ensure the nation’s air and space supremacy.
