Serving The Community
Civil Air Support
Civil Air Support is a UK registered charity comprising pilots, observers and supporters.
Who We Are
Civil Air Support (CAS) is the new identity for the former UK Civil Air Patrol which was also popularly known as ‘Sky Watch’. Civil Air Support is now the largest charitable air support organisation in Europe with around 200 members, together with a fleet of privately-owned aircraft that includes light aeroplanes, light helicopters, autogyros plus a few unmanned aerial vehicles. All Civil Air Support members are volunteers and all flights are private. Members are either pilots, observers or operate in a supporting role. Many of our pilots are highly experienced, ex-military or from a commercial aviation background.
What We Do
All Civil Air Support activity is strictly humanitarian. Assistance sorties or ground support are intended purely to benefit the community, including the preservation of the environment. Any direct advantage gained by a particular agency from a Civil Air Support mission is incidental; the principal motivation of Civil Air Support is to provide community relief through occasional complementary air support for those who would otherwise have no access to it. Civil Air Support will not compete with established air resources and will only operate when the alternative to Civil Air Support is no air support at all. Civil Air Support assistance sorties are provided free to users. As a registered charity, Civil Air Support may accept donations after the event but terms cannot be arranged beforehand.
