FRYEBURG, Maine — The Eastern Slope Regional Airport will be hosting a Civil Air Patrol Open House on Jan. 21.

Col. Blain Cote (Maine Wing Commander), along with other civil air mission pilots and representatives will be on hand to discuss with you all that Civil Air Patrol is about.

Male and female potential cadets ages 12 to 18 and senior prospects (18 and up) are encouraged to attend.

The goal will be to answer all questions and to establish a new local squadron of CAP that includes youth from both New Hampshire and Maine. No experience necessary.

It will be held Jan. 21 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the airport terminal building. Parents and interested adults are welcome.

Refreshments will be provided, and you may be asked your thoughts on naming the new squadron.

"The Civil Air Patrol is the official civilian auxiliary of the US Air Force. Civil Air Patrol’s Cadet program provides young people between 12 and 21 the opportunity to develop their leadership skills through their interest in aviation," said in an email to the Sun from the airport. "As cadets make progress, they have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of activities including encampments on military bases, orientation flights and a variety of national activities."
