Then there's cooperativeness -- the ability to work as a
loyal member of the team. Thls Is a guaIIty that I rate
a]most as important as the "capacity for taking Infinite
pains."
There Is no room In Civil Air Patrol for the
lone-wolf executive -- the self-centere0 type person who
thinks of No. I first, last, and all the tlme. He or she
may flash brilliantly for a while, but his or her star will
not be In the ascendant for long. Civil Air Patrol Is llke
a group enterprise, an0 it deman0s the best efforts of

or'chestra, If It Is to stay ahead and reach its goa]s.
Someone rather aptly described cooperativeness as "not so
much learning how to get along wlth others as takin~ the
kinks out of yourself so that others can get along with
you."

possible find them in your own company ranks: we nearly al]
0o!
But If we allow ourselves to base our cooperativeness upon
our likes and dislikes, we are putting ourselves first an0
the interest of Civil Air Patrol second. No loyal member
can afford to do this, because so far as his/her work for
hls/his unit Is concerned, his/her units Interests must
transcend his/her own.
There:s no reason why we need to mingle In our off-hours
with persons we Oon't care for: but so long as we are on the
job, Its a part of that job to be a willing an~ cooperative
t e a m w o r k e r.
In Civil Air Patrol. as Is sports, It takes teamwork to
reach goals. And other people won't help us reach our goals
unless we help them reach theirs.

The success of your unit is a matter of how well all members
of the team work in harmony to help their unit reach Its
goals. Obviously no unlt can be fully successful if there
is internal dissention and bickering; too much energy that
should go Into constructive purpoees is wasted on negative
or destructive activities, It Is like a man who is at war
with himself: he is drained of his energy before he has
a chance to devote it to its proper purpose.

Knute Rockne. sometimes called the greatest football coach

The same holds true for the commander of a unit. Like the
coach of a football team or the maker of a watch, the unit
commander has the responsibility for making his unit -- as
well as himself -- function in harmony with the rest of the
organization.

In the next few weeks we will update the aircraft wlth some
new features. During our last pilots~ meeting, we dlscussea
the importance of leanlng the mixture during flight. For
this engine, I cannot emphasize that enough. For continued
good engine performance aria engine upkeep, It Is highly
recommended to lean the mixture in fllght when the checklist

EGT Gauge will be installed. Follow the alccraft handbook
recommended procedures. Also, to reduce the wear and tear
on the engine during the winter months, two new features
wlll be added-- an engine heating system (E-Z heat) and the
one cylinder primer system will be replaced by a three
cylinder primer system. If you've noticed, this engine had
a tendency to stall out after the Initial start because of
fuel starvation If you dldn't continue to use priming or
throttle application. With this and the engine heater, it
should start much easier and reduce the wear and tear on the
engine and starting system. It is still important to pull
the prop through several timings prior to starting at any
tlme the aircraft si~s for long periods,

LOVE AND TENDER CARE
With over 30 different pilots flylng our aircraft, I don't
thing anyone would argue that It will take everyone"s
attention to keep It In top running condition. If something
doesn't work at flrst--"be gentle"! -- don"t treat it llke
a pop machine that Just took your last quarter.
Our
armrests have beeen treated Just llke that, especially on

doors don't have to be sl~'mned like some do, and there Is
also a door handle to use to close it, not the armrest! I
guess I would Just ask you to dream that it is yours and
treat it like It was your new car, i.e. How often do you
check your tire pressure? I have found the nose tire over
ten pounds low several times--if you note, the left side of
it (looking head-on) is wearing unevenly from under
inflation. Come to our next training mission (USAF Eval) on
10 Oc¢ober 87 -- I'll be the Flight Line Officer. and will
gladly cover any of these areas with you as we prepare the

which Is not bad considering the number of weather weekends
we have had--during our current rainy season. However. with
only two weeeks to go, it is doubtful that we will reach our
7S hour goal. We have had much better flying weather during
the week, and last month I made a pitch for doing more
scheduling after work while we still have a lot of day light
hours. During the next couple of months that will improve
also, since the late afternoon thundershowers should be
decreasing. Remember--our 60-1 minimums (three landlns and
two hours In the last 60 days), are Just that, minimums, and
they may keep you current but not proficient.

ITEMS OF INTEREST
I'm sure everyone has an lntereest in Insurancee coverage
and if you haven't read CAPR 900-5 and 900-6, it would
behoove you to do so. In fact. If you have read It. do It
again.
There are many aspects that are not clearly
understood about the Hull Self Insurance (HSI) and Liability
coverage. I don't intend to cover It in this newsletter,
but to peak your Interest, consider the following:
- y o u m u s t b e o n o f fi c i a l C A P b u s i n e s s o r a c t i v i t y, t h e
importance of obtaining a CAP activity number.
- does not shield you from pecuniary liability for
damages to an aircraft due to gross negligence, i.e,
CAP retains the right to recover from negligent
members or third parties.
-

does not cover personal property in custody at the
time.

-

when loss occurs, you must protect the aircraft from
further losses or be liable.

-

CAP HSI Is in excess of other valid and collectable
property Insurance, I.e., if the pilot is covered
by nonowner HSI, that is the primary coverage.
exclusions:

~

-

-

loss when airworthiness certificate Is not valid.

-

loss when not properly certified IAW FAA and CAPR
60-1, i.e., license, medical, etc. . " ~,~

-

loss when not properly released IAW CAPR 60-1.
i.e., obtaining a release number and providing
current currency data.
