I.
Pat Mulligan was instrumental in getting Vita Coco sponsorship
for encampment last year, and his coordination and oversight of
the encampment PA team (senior members as well as cadets)
was exemplary. If I’d been a better Wing PAO, I would have put
him in for an award. That, in my mind, was the biggest
accomplishment PA-wise. Another accomplishment is getting
coverage online and on TV via ʻOlelo Island Focus (Channel 53)
with Lt Col Staedel. He has all the details for that, and heʻs
largely to credit for it.
No other reports where made for this section

Mishaps report

FY17-8988 27 May 2017 28 May 2017 PCR-HI 27 Jul 2017 Aircraft CLOSED F79 Received
After flying six cadet orientation sorties, and flying one hour to home station, the mishap pilot elected to
practice a short field
landing. Final approach appeared normal to other pilot on board, and touchdown was normal. Pilot noted
that he wanted to turn
off at an early taxiway to accommodate another aircraft taxiing out. During the process of trying to slow for
the early taxiway, the
pilot appears to have locked the brakes, causing a flat spot and skid hole completely through the right main
tire (tire deflated)
and a flat spot on the left main tire. Of concern is that the pilot did not realize he had skidded, specifically
stating he had not and
commenting that the brakes had not locked. The other pilot noted that there had been aggressive braking.
Corrective action
directed a check ride for the mishap pilot and emphasis that maximum braking should NOT be used on a
practice maneuver.
