Join Our Squadron

Be a member

Share your talents and passion to help us educate the public, inspire the next generation, and honor those who went before us!

Become a full member to participate in activities, share our aircraft with the public, teach cadets about aviation, and thank our veterans. You do not need to be a pilot to join. Our members have backgrounds in flying, technology, maintenance, visual design, medicine, and more!

Feel free to speak with our membership officer (or any unit officer) about your interests and to ensure we’re a good fit for each other.

1. Join Commemorative Air Force

If you are not yet a member of CAF, join at the Colonel, Preservation Colonel, Life Member, or Cadet level.

Skip this step if you already have a CAF Colonel number and are dues-current for this year.

2. Join Rainier Squadron

Squadron members must be dues-current CAF members. Squadron dues are $50 per year, which fund our core operations.
