Welcome to Henderson Composite Squadron and the Civil Air Patrol. This website is the culmination of the hard work of our volunteers and serves to inform both members and guests of what is happening with our squadron.
Henderson is committed to all three missions of CAP; Emergency Services, Aerospace Education and the Cadet Program. Each of our members works tirelessly to advance our Missions for the betterment of others.
We are involved in some exciting projects, including attempting to beat a world record with our high altitude balloon project. Our cadet program is one of the finest in Nevada, having earned the Quality Cadet Unit Award for the last two years, and we are quickly becoming a “go-to” unit for emergency services missions when called upon. Henderson Composite was honored as the 2018 Squadron of the Year for Nevada Wing.
I am proud to lead this unit and invite you to be a part of it, whether youth (12 and up) or adult. Our squadron IS our volunteer membership. We meet each Tuesday at 1830 (6:30 PM) in the main terminal building of the Henderson Executive Airport. Please feel free to drop by or get in touch with us via the “Contact Us” page.
Lt Col Pete Goertzen
Henderson Composite Squadron Commander
