Montgomery Senior Squadron is part of the Maryland Wing. Maryland wing consists of 24 squadrons divided into three groups. MSS is in Group 1 of the Maryland Wing. The squadron participates regularly in search and rescue operations, patrolling missions for the state of Maryland, and emergency locator transmitters (ELT) location missions.
