They fly CBP helicopters to support field operations. Pursuing fugitives from the air, transporting agents to remote locations, etc.

I can't fix all of CAP's problems, but I can lead from the bottom by building my squadron as a center of excellence to serve as an example of what every unit can be.

Hmm. Do you think they'll care that I can't fly a chopper? ;)

File a complaint that they are "discriminating against non-pilots" and you'll probably get hired.

They fly both fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft, and hire pilots accordingly.  According to the brochure on the web site, during 2009-2011 they conducted new-hire evaluations with about 43 fixed-wing pilots, 21 rotary-wing pilots, and 32 dual-rated pilots.

I guess I didn't know they had fixed wing.

Oops, just read this fine print on this announcement:

This announcement is to fill Aircraft (Dual Rating) and Rotorcraft Helicopter positions only.

They have about a dozen different fixed-wing types from C-182s to Citations to P-3s.

Must be under age 40 when hired.  Only the government is permitted to engage in age discrimination.

You have to have prior sworn LE experience to qualify for this particular recruitment and be dual rated OR an instrument rated helicopter pilot.  So if you are "just" an airplane pilot, it don't cut it :'(….  Oh…. looky here… .I meet all three  >:D
