The Australian Civil Air Patrol is a volunteer aerial Search and Rescue organisation with over twenty years experience in the provision of quality air operations. AusCAP is a not-for-profit organisation whose mission statement is “to serve the community by providing aerial support in times of need”.
The Australian Civil Air Patrol (AusCAP) was founded over twenty years ago as the Volunteer Air Patrol, with the mission of providing community based volunteer Search and Rescue (SAR) operations. In the mid nineties, the organisation changed its name to the present one and became registered as a company. Over the organisation’s twenty years of service, AusCAP has grown to include airborne emergency transport of personnel and equipment, maritime searches, overland searches, and angel flights.
