Civil Air Patrol Purchases Additional Aircraft

The U.S. Civil Air Patrol (CAP) awarded a contract to Textron Aviation, Inc. for the sale of 17 Cessna piston engine aircraft. Using fiscal year 2020 funds, the CAP agreed to purchase 11 Skyhawk 172S, five Skylane 182T and one Turbo Stationair HD T206HD aircraft. The aircraft will join a fleet of nearly 550 Cessna aircraft currently owned and operated by the CAP.

As the Air Force Auxiliary, the CAP performs missions for government agencies, and as a non-profit organization they also serve states and communities. In fiscal year 2019, the CAP saved 117 lives and flew nearly 96,000 hours in their Cessna piston fleet. Today, the CAP is the world’s largest Cessna piston operator.
