Florida Wing

Florida Wing ShieldFlorida Wing Headquarters is one of fifty-two wings in the Civil Air Patrol.  Each wing is geographically defined by state lines, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia.  The Florida Wing reports to the Southeast Region, one of six regions, as part of the command structure.  Subordinate units are divided into six groups throughout Florida, and further divided into squadrons and flights.  


The Florida Wing is commanded by Col Luis Garcia who holds the title of Wing Commander.  Under the direction of the Wing Commander, six Group Commanders manage and direct their members by overseeing the operations to meet community needs.  The six groups are divided amongst county lines.
Each group is further subdivided into squadrons and flights.  Members at the squadron level are the lifeblood of the organization providing the tactical roles to meet Civil Air Patrol's Congressionally mandated missions.
