Who We Are
Alabama Wing is one of fifty-two in the Civil Air Patrol. Each Wing is geographically defined by state lines, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. The Alabama Wing reports to the Southeast Region (SER); one of eight regions, as part of the command structure. Subordinate units are divided into squadrons throughout Alabama.
The Alabama Wing is commanded by Col James Harris, who holds the title of Wing Commander. Under the direction of the Wing Commander, squadron commanders direct their members by overseeing the tactical engagement operations to meet community needs.
Each group is further subdivided into squadrons and flights. Members at the squadron level are the lifeblood of the organization providing the tactical roles to meet Civil Air Patrol's Congressionally mandated missions.
