Civil Air Patrol posts up at Taos career fair

Posted

The Taos Civil Air Patrol spread their wings at the recent Taos High School Taos Connect: College/Transition/Career Fair Wednesday (Feb. 13).

Students flocked to the Civil Air Patrol booth during the fair to take a crack at the group’s flight simulator, which is often used to prepare for actual flights. Members of the Civil Air Patrol gathered to try and recruit students to their program, which promotes leadership and character development as well as opportunities in the science, technology engineering and mathematics fields.

“Participation can lead to career opportunities in aerospace engineering, flying a jet for the Air Force or the airlines industry,” said public information officer Paul Duboff.

The Civil Air Patrol began in 1941 and acts as an auxiliary support for the U.S. Air Force. The group focuses on civic service as well as career building for students interested in STEM careers.

Over 900 students participated in Wednesday's fair.
