Welcome to the Al Johnson Legacy Cadet Squadron, and thank you for your interest.
The MI-135 squadron is based at the Park Township Airport in Holland, MI.
We meet weekly throughout the year on Mondays at 6:30 P.M. ( or check our Calendar )
Our Unit is a " Cadet " squadron and our training is focused on Leadership, Aerospace, Fitness, and Character development. These cadets are joined by over 25,000 peers in all 50 states.
With many great men and women in America today attributing their success to the fact that they built their foundation upon what they learned in the Civil Air Patrol.
( 8% of USAF Academy graduates are former Civil Air Patrol Cadets ).
Here are the basics for those interested in joining our team:
Cadet Membership is open to youth ages 12 to 18.
1.They must be US Citizens or resident aliens granted permanent residency in the US.
