CAP predominantly uses high wing aircraft such as Cessnas, Maules and a few GA-8 Airvans. This is due to the fact that our mission of search and rescue (SAR) necessitates getting the best view of the ground possible. CAP also has a fleet of gliders, mostly used for giving CAP cadets orientation rides (O-rides). Here are some photographs of CAP aircraft courtesy of www.airliners.net. Kentucky Wing CAP only has Cessna C-172s and Cessna C-182s in their fleet. The other aircraft shown are used in others parts of the country.
