    The CAF WASP Squadron is a unit of the Commemorative Air Force dedicated to honoring the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) of World War II – America’s first female military aviators – by inspiring the next generation by telling of the WASP accomplishments, their drive and focus.

    The group’s educational outreach programs provide young people, especially young women, a greater appreciation of their own potential, an awareness of the opportunities that surround them, and a mentorship pathway to accomplish their dreams.

    The Squadron operates an AT-6, known as "Nella," which tours across the country. The aircraft was used to train WASP at Avenger Field in World War II. Three WASP cadets have been identified as flying this aircraft while in training. Today, the aircraft is an outdoor classroom, used to tell the story of the WASP. CAF WASP Squadron members support benefits and events related to WASP and the Commemorative Air Force.
