Commander's Welcome

Welcome to the official website of the 7-6 Air Cavalry Composite Squadron, an esteemed unit of the Civil Air Patrol. I am thrilled to extend a warm welcome to you as the Squadron Commander. My name is Captain Rick Hurst, and I am honored to lead this exceptional group of dedicated individuals.

I first became involved with Civil Air Patrol in 2018, drawn by the desire to serve alongside my son. Little did I know that this organization would become an integral part of my life, shaping my experiences and providing countless opportunities for personal and professional growth.

Over the past five years, I have had the privilege of serving as the Deputy Commander for Cadets, working closely with our incredible young members. Witnessing their enthusiasm, dedication, and growth has been one of the most rewarding aspects of my CAP journey. I firmly believe in the positive impact that our organization can have on the lives of both cadets and senior members alike.

Our squadron has a rich history of meaningful contributions, from participating in missions to locate downed aircraft to responding to the devastating flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey. These experiences have not only strengthened our bonds as a unit but have also underscored the vital role we play in our community during times of need.

Whether you are a prospective cadet, senior member, or a visitor interested in learning more about Civil Air Patrol, 7-6 Air Cavalry Composite Squadron is a place where you can make a difference. Our commitment to excellence, teamwork, and service provides a unique environment for personal and professional development.

I invite you to join us at one of our upcoming meetings or events to experience firsthand the spirit and camaraderie that define our squadron. If you have a passion for aviation, emergency services, leadership, or simply a desire to give back to your community, there is a place for you here.

Thank you for considering 7-6 Air Cavalry Composite Squadron as your home within Civil Air Patrol. I look forward to meeting you and working together to continue our proud tradition of service and excellence.
