Welcome to the official website of the Burlington Composite Squadron, home of the Double Deuces of the North Carolina Wing, Civil Air Patrol. We proudly serve our great nation, the state of North Carolina, and our local communities by executing the duties as prescribed by the three congressionally chartered missions: Aerospace education, cadet programs, and emergency services.
Aerospace education takes us to the forefront of the educational system in America, bringing teachers and students together from K-5 through college by offering information about the aerospace sciences and careers and how they benefit their local community. Additionally, we provide aerospace education to our members through various programs.
The cadet program, celebrating its 75th anniversary this October (1942-2017), provides an environment of leadership, camaraderie, fun, excitement, and more. Youths ages 12-20 may sign up to participate in the cadet program, affording them an opportunity to become a part of an organization, providing a military structure, creating a living-leadership laboratory that facilitates education in in the aerospace sciences and other career fields in both the public and private sectors.
Furthermore, the cadet program promotes physical fitness, helps develop character, and teaches real world scenarios in search and rescue missions under the watchful eyes of FBI-vetted senior members.
Our emergency services mission is perhaps the most visible to the general public. Emergency services provide a homeland security component directly to the federal government,
the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), such as aerial surveillance and photography, which assist in gathering information regarding the effects of natural disasters
like hurricanes and flooding, also counter-drug operations, disaster relief, and so much more.
