The sky's the limit for one local organization, and they are looking for new members. Whether it is a search and rescue mission or disaster relief , pilots from the civil air patrol help government agencies by hitting the skies for a bird’s eye view.
For most patrol members this is a second job. From doctors to judges all kinds of professionals make up the team in Monroe. Volunteer are something the organization is always in need of.
“Man power is essential. We have 27 active members right now. We could use very easily double that amount,” says Commander Elvis Stout.
The civil air patrol is more than just pilots. The group is also made up of scanners, observers, and safety operators that ride in the planes navigating and taking aerial photos.
