Black Sheep Senior Squadron is one of seven squadrons in the Greater Denver Area of the Colorado Wing. It is comprised of strictly senior member adults. Other squadrons in the area consist of cadet squadrons comprised mostly of youth 12-18 years old and composite squadrons that include both cadets and senior members.

Black Sheep members are both pilots and non-pilots who execute and support our emergency services mission in search and rescue, fire watch, disaster relief, and other missions tasked or approved by the U.S. Air Force. Our flight crews are typically made up of a Mission Pilot, a Mission Observer, and a Mission Scanner. Other positions we fill include Incident Command Post staff, urban direction-finding crews, and public affairs. While Black Sheep does not have cadet members, we do support our cadet squadrons with flight experiences and aerospace education opportunities. All squadron members select one or more areas of opportunity that prepare them to support the various functions of the squadron. Training is provided at little to no cost.

It is important to emphasize that no aviation experience is necessary to join Black Sheep as a valuable contributor. Contribution is paramount! CAP provides a highly rewarding and fun experience and continually develops members in this serving profession.
