You can become a part of history by joining us in the Commemorative Air Force – Southern California Wing! You don’t need pilot’s wings, military service, or mechanical ability to join and take part in this important historical service organization. All you need is a love for these magnificent aircraft and what they meant for millions of people during World War II. They meant FREEDOM!
There are currently over 10,950 men and women members of The CAF – in 30 nations, including units in France, England, Australia, Switzerland, and New Zealand.
The only requirement for membership in The CAF is a sincere interest in the preservation of WWII aircraft and a minimum age of 18. There is also a Cadet Program for young men and women aged 12 through 23.
When you join, you become a Colonel in The CAF and receive the monthly CAF color magazine “Dispatch”. Your next step is to join as a member of the CAF Southern California Wing. You are then entitled to participate fully in the restoration work and all other activities of the Wing. You will also receive the Wing’s newsletter, “Flight Line”.
You also become a part of a cadre of men and women who think, as you do, that, in the words of Winston Churchill, “Never in the history of human conflict have so many owed so much to so few” (speaking, of course, of the brave pilots of the RAF who were primarily instrumental in turning back the German Luftwaffe in the famous Battle of Britain). You will find a tremendous amount of pride in what we do. It can’t help but rub off.
