Burke Composite Squadron

Welcome to Burke Composite Squadron! (Springfield, VA)



Who We Are


Burke Composite Squadron was founded in September 1987 and has grown to be over 100 members strong. Our squadron is composed of dedicated members aged 12 and older. We welcome anyone who is interested in search and rescue, flying in Cessna aircraft, cyber security, and countless other opportunities that Civil Air Patrol has to offer. We are proud of the Burke Composite Squadron's adult and youth members from diverse backgrounds, volunteering together to serve our community, state, and Nation.

Squadron of Merit 2021

The Civil Air Patrol’s Virginia Wing distinguished the Burke Composite Squadron with the 2021 Squadron of Merit Award for its exceptional work in 2020. Each year, the Wing evaluates actions and activities of 22 Virginia Civil Air Patrol squadrons across the state and selects the top squadron for its work in Cadet Programs. The squadron performed exemplarily in the StellarXplorers and CyberPatriot National Competitions, actively engaged cadets through outdoor activities while abiding by COVID-19 safety measures, responded to COVID-19 support missions, and advanced a special project with a microchip containing the names of Civil Air Patrol members and Air Force Association StellarXplorers competitors that will be sent to the moon in 2023.
