About

Jefferson County Senior Squadron has served the Northwest Metro Denver area for over 20 years. Although many CAP squadrons have vibrant youth programs (called Cadet Programs), Jeffco Squadron is an adult-only squadron (called a Senior Squadron) serving CAP's three missions through air operations. Our base at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport and our members are capable of accomplishing air objectives all over Colorado with just a few hours notice.

Jeffco has immediate access to two CAP aircraft based at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport:

  • N594CP This is a 2009 Cessna 182T with the G1000 avionics package. It is equipped with a normally-aspirated 235HP engine, a fixed (non-retractable) landing gear, a constant RPM (variable pitch) propeller, an auxiliary oxygen tank, a special CAP Radio, and a direction finder to precisely locate ELT signals.

  • N9908H This is a 1982 Cessna T-182R with 'round dial' avionics and a GTN 625 GPS unit. It is equipped with a turbocharged 235HP engine, a fixed (non-retractable) landing gear, a constant RPM (variable pitch) propeller, an integrated oxygen tank, a special CAP radio, and a direction finder to precisely locate ELT signals.

On any given day or night, the members of Jeffco Squadron can be found:

  • Preparing for an Emergency Services air training sortie, searching for simulated missing hikers, or photographing simulated damaged structures
  • Conducting Orientation Rides, which are flights provided to teachers and CAP youths (called Cadets) to introduce them with aviation.
  • Growing our professional skills through serving squadron functions
  • Post-flight assessment of safety and efficiency

Join Jeffco CAP and help with our valuable, fun, and rewarding missions.
