First Steps

Welcome to San Diego Cadet Squadron 144

Welcome to the Civil Air Patrol's San Diego Cadet Squadron 144 – a place where today's cadets are trained to be tomorrow's aerospace leaders. We are thrilled to have you on board and can't wait to see your achievements!

Getting Started

To begin, we recommend making three visits to our squadron to understand our activities and ethos. During your second visit, we'll arrange a meeting with our squadron staff to discuss your goals and how we can work together effectively.

Second Visit: Required Documentation

On your second visit, we ask you to present identification documents. The simplest option is: U.S. Passport or U.S. Passport Card

Alternative Documents: If you don't have a passport, you can provide one document from each of the following two groups:

  • Photo ID: Examples include a State-issued Driver’s License or ID, School ID Card, or U.S. Military ID.
  • Proof of Legal Status: Examples include a Social Security Card, Birth Certificate, or Native American Tribal Document.

Please bring these documents for verification purposes. If you need more information or if you have other forms of identification, feel free to contact us for guidance. See Civil Air Patrol Membership - Regulation 39-2 for more information.
