Paine Field Squadron has new hangar

Apr 24, 2013

The Paine Field Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol is inviting the public to attend an open house from 7-8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 30 in celebration of its new hangar.

Representatives from different sections will be offering tours and short talks about what it is they do, and about Civil Air Patrol in general. The squadron’s aircraft will be on display on the flight line for pictures and pilots will be available to answer questions.

The new hangar is located at 3311 109th St. S.W., Hangar 201, Suite 211, Everett.

On July 1, 1946, President Truman established the Civil Air Patrol as a federally chartered benevolent civilian corporation, and on May 26, 1948 Congress passed Public Law 557 which made CAP the auxiliary of the new United States Air Force.

One of CAP primary missions is Cadet Programs. The program accepts new cadets who are at least 12 years old and not yet 19 years old. CAP is a non-profit corporation.

The Paine Field Squadron’s new hangar is on the right, between Aviation Technical Services and the Flying Heritage Collection.

Park in front of the hangar or across the street along the curb in front of the giant water tower.

When you enter the main door, follow the "CAP" signs across the hangar floor (follow the yellow line), and up the stairs to the headquarters.

Refreshments will be served.
