About NC-052

The Sugar Valley Composite Squadron is a unit in Group 4 of the North Carolina Wing of the Civil Air Patrol. As the auxiliary of the United States Air Force, the Civil Air Patrol, through the work of 60,000 volunteers, fulfills its Congressional charter by providing cadet programs, aerospace education, and emergency services to communities across the country.

The Sugar Valley unit, referred to as MER-NC-052 (“MER” stands for Middle East Region, which includes seven mid-Atlantic states), was formed in May 2013 and has quickly grown both in members and in energy.
