Welcome the home of Los Alamitos Glider Training Squadron 41

Our Schweitzer 2-33 on the ramp at Los Alamitos

Los Alamitos Glider Training Squadron 41 is a senior squadron of the Civil Air Patrol, a civilian auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force.  We are based at the Joint Forces Training Base Los Alamitos California.  Our focus is on training cadets and seniors how to fly gliders.

Current Meeting Schedule:
2nd & 4th Tuesday of the month at 7 pm.  (Pacific Standard Time)
The next meeting will be at 7 pm on 23 January  2018.

Current Flying Schedule:
Weekend glider operations at Los Alamitos have been suspended.
We have been informed by the Los Alamitos Army Airfield Commander that the tower will be closed on weekends beginning in December.  According to our operating agreement with the base, the tower must be operating for us to fly. 

We are planning to have the glider get it’s annual in January and be ready to return to service in February.  By then we will have a better idea of when we will be flying.

We are still able operate on weekdays while the tower is open and are looking for possible dates to do so.

Check out our Flying page to get the latest information.

What to wear:  You must wear some official CAP shirt or uniform.  However you may NOT wear BOOTS.  (You do need covered shoes, no sandals either.)
NO BOOTS IN GLIDERS!

A CAP tee-shirt, jeans and sneakers is fine.  Be sure to bring sunscreen, snacks and head protection.  Be ready to have a good time.
