Decal Information

The below guidance is from CAP/LGT and is in addition to what is in the current regulation CAPR 77-1, Operation and Maintenance of Civil Air Patrol Vehicles. Its purpose is to help provide better guidance and visuals of proper decal placement. Please contact CAP Transportation Program Manager/Fleet Manager (CAP/LGT) if you have any questions, issues, or concerns.  

Decal placement should be standard across the entire CAP vehicle fleet. Please follow the guidance below for ALL CAP owned vehicles (COVs). Decals are funded by CAP/LGT. Any deviation from this guidance needs approval from CAP/LGT prior to the alteration.


To request vehicle decals, please log onto eServices and go to CAP Materials to place your order.

To do this, follow the below instructions.

  • Log into eServices
  • click “Menu” in top left
  • select "Logistics"
  • select "Material Orders"
  • select "Order Request"
  • select “LG Materials”
  • enter your CAP ID and click search (select yourself)
  • select the quantity next to the decals you need and click “Confirm Order”

Decals can be requested to replace damaged, fading, torn, or unsightly decals on vehicles. They also need to be requested for new vehicles.

The below section is general guidance with pictures of placement areas.

  • The green areas (in the pictures below) are the only areas decals should be placed.

  • Decals can NOT be magnetic.

  • NO decals should be on rear doors of any vehicle type (marked by red X in the pictures below).

  • NO other decals should be on the COV (unless approved by CAP/LGT).

  • Decals should not be cut in half, split, or divided when opening a door or gas tank or divided by an obstruction. Once affixed, they shall remain in one piece in their entirety.

  • If a decal is NOT going to fit in the correct area (marked by blue in the pictures below), then do NOT affix a decal.
