Tune in tomorrow, June 25th, for another great virtual opportunity!

In 2018, Southwest pilot Tammie Jo Shults made a one-engine emergency landing after the aircraft she was piloting suffered a blown engine. In this Air and Space Live Chat, Shults and museum curator Dorothy Cochrane will discuss that day, the history of women pilots and the challenges they faced, and what kind of training it takes to have nerves of steel.

Congratulations to one of the Air Force's newest second lieutenants, 2nd Lt. Ronald Ramsaran!

2nd Lt. Ramsaran was commissioned in a small ceremony held at the Air Force Memorial in Arlington, Virginia. Our own Maj. Kristen Santos, a Captain in the Maryland National Guard, served as his commissioning officer and administered his Oath of Office. After the official pinning of his new insignia by his parents and sister, 2nd Lt. Ramsaran received his traditional "first salute" from his cousin, Cpl. Ramsaran, a Marine Corps veteran. The next step in his military career will be Undergraduate Pilot Training at Laughlin AFB, Texas.

2nd Lt. Ramsaran, also a Civil Air Patrol (CAP) First Lieutenant, currently serves as B-CC's leadership officer and color guard project officer. He joined CAP as a cadet in B-CC back in 2014. In fact, his first CAP meeting was the Squadron Change of Command where Maj. Santos took over as B-CC's Squadron Commander. As a cadet, he earned the Amelia Earhart Award and served in several cadet cadre positions within B-CC and Tri-Wing Encampment. He also participated in National Blue Beret, competed on the color guard team, serves as an active member of the Ground Team, and holds his Private Pilot's License.

His commissioning ceremony started a little earlier than expected, but you can still watch the video by visiting Air Force ROTC Detachment 330 - University of Maryland's page. If you skip ahead to about 2 hours and 50 minutes into the video you will be able to view his ceremony.

We are more than proud of the leader that 2nd Lt. Ramsaran has become and we thank him for his continued service to B-CC and Civil Air Patrol! He now joins a long line of former B-CC cadets who have entered military service.

The 2020 Tri-Wing Encampment has been CANCELLED. Please stay tuned for possibility of reschedule to later in the year based on the Covid-19 situation.

THANK YOU to all the cadets and senior members who have continued to work on encampment.

The 2020 Tri-Wing encampment that was scheduled for July of 2020 has had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are hoping to hold an encampment later this year but our ability to do that will depend on the status of the outbreak and limitations due to social distancing.

We will be processing refunds as soon as possible.

Thank you to our dedicated staff who has done amazing work during this challenging time. Stay safe everyone.

Capt. John Acevedo and 2nd Lt. Carlos Gonzalez helped fulfill a request for support by delivering emergency supplies to several nursing homes across the county. With each delivery made, they were able to directly support the healthcare workers battling the virus.

We are proud of those members who have volunteered their time to supporting our local community over the last few months and to the many more that have raised their hand to volunteer in future missions!

Today B-CC, celebrates 55 years of dedicated service to our community and Civil Air Patrol.

The Bethesda-Chevy Chase Composite Squadron was officially chartered on April 21st, 1965 as the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Cadet Squadron. Under the command of Lt William R. Hicks, the squadron quickly grew in size, volunteered actively within the community, and maintained a high level of readiness to conduct emergency services missions.

After more than half a century, several location changes, a change in squadron type, and changes to our unit emblem, B-CC remains steadfast in its commitment of service. The Squadron has been home to countless cadets and seniors who have taken part in carrying out Civil Air Patrol's missions.

Today, the Squadron is the largest in Maryland Wing with a vibrant cadet program, active ground team, and strong AE/STEM culture. Members of the Squadron have gone on to serve and are currently serving at all levels of Civil Air Patrol/activities/NCSAs. Many B-CC Alumni have found themselves in successful careers in the military, private sector, public service, etc.

While we could not come together due to current restrictions, we are working on plans for a celebration later this year. In the meantime, please enjoy a few photos and news clippings from throughout B-CC's history.

Same mission. One history. One Family.

Congratulations to 2nd Lt. Victor Kyle on Graduating from the US Air Force Academy today!

2nd Lt. Kyle is a former Civil Air Patrol cadet who joined the Parkland Magnet Middle School Cadet Squadron before transferring to B-CC. During his time in B-CC, he earned the Billy Mitchell Award, served on cadet staff, completed his cadet encampment, and graduated from the Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training Familiarization Course at Columbus AFB. Outside of Civil Air Patrol he was an athlete who excelled academically.

He went on to the US Air Force Academy Preparatory School before earning his spot at the US Air Force Academy. 2nd Lt. Kyle's graduation and commissioning into the US Air Force signifies the start of a new chapter in his life as he heads off to become an Air Force Pilot. He joins several former B-CC Cadets in recent years to graduate from the Air Force Academy with a pilot slot.

We could not be more proud of the leader 2nd Lt. Kyle has become and look forward to his future successes!

ES Training Weekend - 2/22-23/2020

Last month, members of B-CC and Parkland Squadrons came together to work on fundamental emergency services skills. Throughout the weekend, cadets and senior members participated in classroom sessions and learned about basic outdoor/search skills before bringing everything together during a simulated ground team mission. Cadets also learned about cold weather gear, how to stay warm overnight, and worked with one another to prepare breakfast for everyone.

Thank you to our Emergency Services Officer, 2nd Lt. Gonzales, for quickly putting together a solid weekend of training. We also would like to thank 1st Lt. Donahoe for his logistical support and the Montgomery Senior Squadron, Civil Air Patrol for allowing us to use their trailer!

A Continuing Legacy...

In March of 1974, the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Cadet Squadron was one of ten Civil Air Patrol Squadrons recognized as a CAP Squadron of Distinction for 1973. Out of 381 eligible squadrons, B-CC was ranked as having a โ€œtop tenโ€ cadet program in Civil Air Patrol. Captain William R. Hicks, B-CCโ€™s founding Squadron Commander, described โ€œfour basic building blocksโ€ that contributed to the young squadronโ€™s success. They included:


  • A cadet squadron โ€œrun for cadets by cadets.โ€

  • Support from โ€œa small group of very dedicated seniors who believe firmly believe in a cadet run squadron.โ€

  • Presence of a โ€œstrong working cadet staff.โ€

  • A strong Cadet Corps
  • These four building blocks, in conjunction with โ€œEsprit-de-Corps, strong military courtesy and disciple, and many activities,โ€ continued to serve as the foundation throughout decades of squadron excellence.

    Fast forwarding to 2019, the Squadron continues to have one of the largest Cadet Corps in Maryland Wing and prides itself in exposing its members to a wide variety of training and activities. B-CC continues to field a capable and experienced Ground Team who has been credited with multiple โ€œfindsโ€ over the last few years and who regularly helps to train other members from around the Wing/Region. B-CCโ€™s color guard remains active performing at many community events every year and represented the has the Squadron at the Wing/Region Cadet Competitions.

    Cadets also participate in the wing honor guard program, CyberPatriot, Cadet Advisory Council, Encampment cadet cadre, and many National Cadet Special Activities. Squadron activity highlights include Air National Guard Kitchen Detail support, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, Wreaths Across America, model rocketry weekends, weather balloon launches, Green Bank Radio Observatory Trips, museum trips, demonstrations with local police/fire rescue, and Triple Play Weekends.

    The Bethesda-Chevy Chase Composite Squadron remains steadfast in its commitment to train, develop, and mentor leaders of character through its rich and diverse cadet program!
