GUNTERAFB, Ala. -- Each year Civil Air Patrol nominates
three highly qualified cadets to attend the Air Force Academy
Preparatory School. Nominations are reviewed by the school,
and if admission standards are met, at least one candidate will
receive an appointment.
Historically, Civil Air Patrol cadets nominated by National
Headquarters Civil Air Patrol, have experienced a high rate
of acceptance.
Air Force Academy Preparatory School provides an excellent opportunity for young men and women who wish to enter
the Air Force Academy to sharpen their academic, military,
and athletic skills. Approximately 70 percent of students who
enter complete all requirements, are graduated, and are
offered appointments to the Air Force Academy.
To be eligible to apply for Civil Air Patrol nomination to Air
Force Academy Prep School, a cadet must be a United States
citizen, have earned a Billy Mitchell Award and be at least 17
years old but not older than 21 by July 1, 1991. Additionally,
a cadet must be unmarried with no dependents, have a high
moral character, never have attended a service academy
preparatory school, and be medically qualified for an appointment to the Air Force Academy.
Deadline for submission of nomination applications for the
July 1991 class is rapidly approaching. Cadets must comply
with application procedures outlined in Civil Air Patrol Manual
50-16, Chapter 14, para 14-3. Please note that completed
application packages must be postmarked not later than
November 30 and mailed to the following address:
National Headquarters CAP/TTHA
M a x w e l l A F B , A L 3 6 11 2 - 5 5 7 2
Applicants should remember that squadron and wing commanders' endorsements are required on the Civil Air Patrol
Form 95. Anyone interested in applying for the Air Force
Academy Prep School needs to prepare a complete application
package immediately to ensure the November 30 deadline is

AFRCC achieves
its lO,O00th SAVE
SCOTTAFB, Ill. -- Heavy rains near Tucson, Ariz., recently
led to the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center here reaching
a significant milestone.
The center recorded its 10,000th save when an HH-3 Jolly
Green Giant helicopter from Air Force Reserve's 71st Special
Operations Squadron plucked four people from raging flood
According to AFRCC's Commander, Air Force Lt. Col. Randal Gaseor, there's life-and-death drama involved on almost a
daily basis in his business.
"There are search and rescue coordinators on duty around
the clock," he explained, "and their only concern is getting help
for the victims as quickly and efficiently as possible."
To do that, AFRCC employs the services of many organizations, including Civil Air Patrol. The center monitors all
search and rescue operations in the United States.
Colonel Gaseor explained when AFRCC gets a call, "the
controllers painstakingly piece together clues, pursue leads
and coordinate resources to rescue those in trouble -- be it an
injured hiker on a craggy mountaintop or a lone survivor of an
aircraft crash in a forest where the canopy of trees is so dense,
that no one from the air can see the crash site."
Since June 1974 that's exactly what AFRCC's been doing,
amassing saves at a rate of almost two a day.
T h i s y e a r, t h e c e n t e r h a s r e c o r d e d 1 9 0 s a v e s . C i v i l A i r
Patrol has contributed to this number with 26 saves recorded
as of Aug. 21.

Mail Call needs help
CHRISTMAS, Fla. -- "MAIL CALL!" ...Those two
words are music to the ears of just about everyone who
wears our country's uniform. Americans from coast to
coast, including many members of Civil Air Patrol, joined
forces last Christmas in a program with that name, "Mail
Call!", and helped many have a star-spangled Christmas
while they spread "points of light" to more than a thousand
places. Christmas was thus made just a little better for
more than 150,000 of our servicemen and women abroad,
many of them young people away from home for the first
"Mail Call!" combines greetings from thousands of
members, resorting all the cards and letters into more
than 1,000 bundles, which are then sent priority mail to
units and locations in more than 40 states as well as to
every corner of the globe, (some have received responses
from every continent). The twin goals of"Mail Call!" are
to include mail from many people and places in each
outgoing bundle and to spread each person's greetings as
widely as possible
Leading Civil Air Patrol squadrons in last year's "Mail
Call!" was the Lone Eagle Squadron, New Jersey Wing.
York Squadron #301, Pennsylvania Wing; Squadron #302,
Pennsylvania Wing; and Waukesha Squadron, Wisconsin

Orientation flight refuels
Air Force Thunderbirds
B I S M A R K , N . D . - - Te n
members of Bismark Composite Squadron were given a recent orientation flight which
refueled the U.S. Air Force
Thunderbirds. The seven
cadets and three senior members who took part, flew aboard
a KC-135A Stratotanker assigned to the 906th Air Refueling Squadron, Minot AFB,
After boarding, Civil Air
Patrol members were given a
safety briefing by the boom

was airborne and, upon reaching cruising altitude, the group
was allowed to move about
the aircraft from cockpit to
boom pod.
The mission originally called
for the KC-135 to refuel both

the Thunderbirds and a B-52,
but due to delays the aircraft
missed the B-52 training flight.
No one was disappointed
though, according to Cadet
Chad Grondahl, public affairs
officer for Bismark Composite Squadron, because they
would soon be flying in formation with the U.S. Air Force
Aerial Demonstration Team,
the Thunderbirds.
Anticipation, said Cadet
Grondahl, was as high as the
26,000-foot altitude.
The aircraft turned into its
eastbound refueling track and
awaited arrival of the Thunderbirds.
As the red, white and blue
aircraft approached, the sevenship formation split, and each
F-16 Fighting Falcon moved

to its individual position and
awaited their turn to refuel.
For almost 40 minutes the
sleek jets were suspended off
the tanker's wingtips and
boom. Each fighter received
nearly 7,000 pounds of JP-4
jet fuel.
After the seven F-16s were
refueled, the Thunderbirds
once again formed up below
the KC-135 and, "lit the fire"
as they returned to their cruising altitude of 41,000 feet.
The KC-135 orientation
flight turned northward and
began descending toward Minot Air Force Base.
According to Cadet Grondahl, the 10 Civil Air Patrol
members who participated will
not forget this flight for a long,
long time.

Grissom unit flies to Florida
GRISSOM AFB. Ind. -Grissom Cadet Squadron recently departed Grissom AFB,
Ind., for Patrick AFB, Fla.
The group flew there aboard
an Air Force Reserve KC- 135.
While enroute, the aircraft
refueled two A-10s, which
members were able to observe.
The next day they visited
Kennedy Space Center. They
were given the guided tour
called the "Earth Shuttle"
While on this tour, members

saw an astronaut training
From there the group went
to the vehicle assembly building where the shuttle is built
and housed until time to go to
the launch pad. On the way to
launch pads 39A or 39B, there
is a huge road. This road, called
" c r a w l e r w a y, " i s w h e r e t h e
crawler, a machine half the
16ngth of a football field and
as wide as an eight-lane highway, carries the shuttle to the

pad at 3 mph.
The unit's trip back to Indiana was interesting, said
Senior Member Cynthia S.
Bullock, because on the way
the aircraft performed a midair refueling operation for
an EC-135. This particular
EC-135 aircraft is part of an
Air Force mission called,
"Looking Glass." "Looking
Glass" mission aircraft have
been on rotating duty 24-hours
a day since the early 1960s.

PreDarin_cl for missions requires planning



EIELSON AFB, Alaska There are, according to
Donna Geryk of the 71st Composite Squadron here, some
certainties in the aviation
world which pilots can accept as gospel. For instance,
pilots can never plan too
much for their flights nor
can they be too cautious.
There are also certainties
in Civil Air Patrol which
members can accept as gospel. Such as: There is no
such thing as too much practice.
There's also the fact, that
as long as the ftrst certainty
is not heeded, Civil Air Patrol will get to put their practice into action.
If there's any doubt, says
Ms. Geryk, just ask Capts.
Tom Gindle and Tom Hutchings, 71 st Composite Squadron, Alaska Wing.
Captain Gindle, squadron
pilot, recently responded to
a call from the Rescue Coordination Center at ElmendorfAFB, Alaska. The coordinator informed Captain
Gindle that the center was
tracking an Emergency Locator Transmitter in Alaska's

interior. The 71st Composite Squadron was asked to
fly the mission to find the
Within an hour, Captains
Gindle and Hutchings, mission observer, were airborne.
While Captain Gindle piloted
the DHC-2, Captain Hutchings tracked signals they
were receiving on their direction-finding radio.
"We were 15 miles southeast of Nenana, off the east
bank of the Totatlanika River,
when we spotted the overturned Super Cub," said Captain Gindle. "When we flew
in lower, we spotted one survivor and a tent which had
been set up adjacent to the
downed aircrat~."
During rescue missions,
primary consideration is the
weU-being of all survivors.
While Captains Gindle and
Hutchings saw only one man,
they were concerned there
might be an injured person
in the tent.
"Because the pilot hadn't
filed a flight plan we didn't
have any information. We
didn't know who he was or
how many people were with

him. To make matters worse,
the aircraft was overturned
in such a way that its identifying letters were shielded
from view. If we had known
the numbers, we could have
called Flight Services who
could have checked the aircraft registration to find the
information we needed."
The aircraft also prevented
Captain Gindle from landing his aircraft. Instead, Captain Hutchings dropped a
message instructing the man
to turn off his Emergency
Locator Transmitter, stomp
out his aircraft's "N" number, and a phone number of
someone rescuers could telephone.
As the man stomped the
information, the aircrew
circled relaying information
by radio to the Rescue Coordination Center.
According to Captain
Gindle, the 71st Composite
Squadron had recently installed a high-frequency radio in the search aircraft
which allowed them to talk
directly with RCC officials.
"Our new radio saved us
an unbelievable amount of

time. In no time we knew
the name of the registered
owner of the aircraft. AR~r
the mission coordinator had
made a phone call to the survivor's friend, we learned the
pilot was the only person
aboard the aircraft."
Once they had the information, the aircrew once
again dropped a message to
the stranded pilot letting him
know that his friend would
be out the following day to
pick him up.
Satisfied the man had
enough survival gear and
food~ and that everything was
done that could be done,
Captains Gindle and Hutchings wrapped up the mission
and returned home.
L a t e r, C a p t a i n G i n d l e
learned the pilot had just set
out on a bear hunt. Upon
reaching the airstrip, the pilot eased into his landing.

and his friend were able to

Captain Gindle said this

incident is a classic example
of how easily and quickly
things can go wrong.
"This guy didn't do anything wrong. The brake locking is one of those things
that just happen. This incident wasn't catastrophic
because the pilot was prepared. He carried survival
gear, his Emergency Locator Transmitter was in working condition, and he knew
how to signal and communicate with us."
The pilot did not, however,
file a flight plan. While it
wasn't critical in this instance, that's not always the
case. "I can't emphasize this
enough," said Captain
Gindle. "It pays to be real
careful. Let someone know
where you are going and
when you'll be back. Always
file a flight plarL That way ff
something does go wrong;
chances are greater that a
rescue team will be sent out
looking for you."
Captain Gindle says the
71st Composite Squadron
will keep practicing -- so
they'll be ready.

Our safi;ty must never be compromised
By Air Force Lt. Col.
Pat Finnegan
deputy chief of staff
GUNTER AFB, Ala. -As we prepare for the 1990s,
we must all remember that,
as Civil Air Patrol's Executive Director, Air Force Col.
Joseph M. Nall, has said,
"Safety must not be compromised in our operation."
Nothing Civil Air Patrol
does can ever justify an unsafe act or condition. Everything Civil Air Patrol
does can be done safely. Our
missions, be they search and

rescue, orientation rides,
customs, or whatever, are
never so crucial that we can
rationalize taking a chance.
Planning can help preclude
compromising situations.
Colonel Nail said in a recent letter to all U.S. Air
Force-Civil Air Patrol Liaison Region commanders
that, "We do not have to fly
in critical weather conditions. Although we need to
train to minimums, we don't
need to crack them. That is
not macho; it is plainly not

Everyone in Civil Air Patrol has a responsibility to
take care of their own safety,
but each of us also has the
responsibility to take care

Correct others if they are
about to do something dangerous.

PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- Civil
Air Patrol members played a
major role recently in the
Aviation/Space Education
Workshop for Arizona teachers at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University here.
Capt. Peggy Baty, Arizona
Wing, and Embry-Riddle's
dean of Academic Support, was
director of the aerospace education program. Dr. Charles
Ahlstrand, Embry-Riddle
Career Center director and a
newly recruited senior member of Prescott Composite
Squadron, was associate director for the aerospace workshop.
The course objective was to
introduce teachers to an
awareness of aviation/aerospace environment and provide basic teaching tools that
would interface with traditional classroom subjects.
Other Civil Air Patrol members involved in the workshop
included such notaries as CapL
Kay Roam, Federal Aviation
Administration training specialist and Prescott Composite Squadron mission and
check pilot. Captain Roam
spoke about air traffic control. Maj. Lois Merritt Ward,
a former group commander,
talked about International
Women's Pilot Association, also
known as the "99s." Lt. Col.
CliffEaton, Prescott Composite Squadron deputy com-

mander, addressed Civil Air
Patrol history which included
today's missions and purpo~s.
Senior Member Ahlstrand,
discussed career opportunities
in aviation, and Captain Baty
discussed experimental aircraft.
In addition to classroom
instruction, teachers in attendance had the opportunity to
tour Phoenix' Sky Harbor International Airport-Terminal
Radar Approach Control Center and the local Prescott Flight
Service Station and Air Traffic Control Center.
A highlight for teachers was
a flight with Arizona's Air
National Guard to tour the
U.S. Air Force Academy in
Colorado Springs, Colo. This
also included a side-trip to
Denver to observe the United
Airlines Flight Training Center.
At the conclusion of the
workshop, Captain Baty stated
that the course was, "truly a
success thanks to the dedication and cooperation of those
who contributed their services." Captain Baty also said,
"this school year, these teachers will go to their classrooms
excited about the concept of
integrating aviation into their
curriculum. Young people they
touch will be taught more about
the importance aviation plays
in our society today, and that
learning can be fun."

Cadets attend EAA Oshkosh '90
OSHKOStt, Wis. -- Out
with the old, in with the new.
No more Blue Beret. Blue
Beret has had a complete
overhaul. The new name is
Experimental Aircraft Association-Oshkosh.
Approximately 41 cadets and
eight senior mere bers from 42
Civil Air Patrol wings across
the United States traveled here
to attend the annual EAA
Civil Air Patrol designed and
built the EAA-Oshkosh facility which includes two buildings directly across from
Wittman Field, home of the
Annual EAA Meeting and Flyin.
EAA-Oshkosh encampment
began July 21 and lasted 15
days. During the first week,
attendees trained in several
areas including; ground operations, interviewing techniques, communications,
ground search operations,
flight line activities, Emerg e n c y L o c a t e r Tr a n s m i t t e r
location and safety.
After the lengthy training,
cadet and senior members
alike must demonstrate, for
several hours, each of the following skills; flight line operations, ramp search, ELT
tracking, aerospace education
and communication procedures.
All cadets must demonstrate
a positive attitude, be in compliance with all Civil Air Patrol manuals and regulations
and show the initiative and
ability to work with others.
Although attendance was
down this year, success was

apparent in supporting all
phases of Civil Air Patrol's
three mission elements.
This year there were two
events which served as highlights for the EAA-Oshkosh
activity. The first was the attendance of our friends from
across the sea. EAA-Oshkosh
hosted 19 cadets and four seniors from England's British
Air Cadets' 358 Willing Squadron.
Flight Lt. Clifford Mullins,
BAC, and his staff were outstanding people and great to
work with. After some training was provided to British
attendees, cadets from the U.S.
and U.K. worked side-by-side
with great success and camaraderie.
The second highlight involved Cadet Chris Schulte,
Colorado Wing. He's probably one of a few cadets in Civil
Air Patrol who has ridden in a
supersonic airliner.., the British Airways Coneorde. There
was one empty seat on the
Concorde and Cadet Schulte
was given the opportunity to
fly aboard the aircraft, and he
seized it.
By the time the activity was
over, EAA-Oshkosh activity
attendees achieved 97 sorties
involving 97 aircraft. They
flew 17 practice ELT search
missions with 17 finds and
drove more than 190 miles in
support of the activity.
EAA-Oshkosh cadets also
assisted officials by parking
more than half of the estimated 17,000 aircraft which
attended the event.

INTERACTION -- From left, Cadets Damlan Wakeman and Paul Campbell, Great Britain, discuss with
Cadet Jason Nichols, similarities and differences in rules regarding cadet programs. Cadet Nichols
wanted to know more about his British counterparts and thought that comparing rules might be a
good way to learn. At this year's Civil Air Petrol EAA-Oahkosh Activity, American and British Cadets
had several opportunities to Interact.

DENVER -- More than 50 cadet
and senior members from the Denver
area participated in a recent search
for engine parts. The parts were lost

Some 1,200 gather for activities
By Air Force TSgt.
Dan Sherwood, editor
Civil Air Patrol News
R E N O , N e v. - - U N B E LIEVABLE! Civil Air Patrol's
National Board for 1990 is
history, and there was so much
happening and so much that
happened ... I hardly know
where to begin.
This year more than 1,200
Civil Air Patrol members, aviation enthusiasts and special
guests arrived at John Ascauga's Nugget ltotel here to
participate in the National
Board meeting Aug. 9-11.
This year's National Board
agenda, called for Civil Air
Patrol leaders to once again
meet behind closed doors and
discuss current organizational
plans and set national policy.
A d d i t i o n a l l y, N a t i o n a l
Board members east ballots
during elections to select those
leaders who will fill roles as
national officers for the coming year.
The first of these is the
fact that Civil Air Patrol has
a new National Commander,
Brig. Gen. Warren J. Barry.
General Barry succeeds Maj.
Gen. E.E. Harwell, who served
as national commander for
more than four years. General Harwell also received Life
Membership in Civil Air Patrol. "I have spent the past 32
years in Civil Air Patrol and I
love it more than I can say,"
said General Harwell. "I have
made Civil Air Patrol my life
and I'm proud that Civil Air
Patrol has made me a part of
its life."
Along with the change in
command of Civil Air Patrol,
another national level position was also filled. Civil Air
P a t r o l ' s n e w N a t i o n a l Vi c e
Commander is Col. Richard
L. Anderson, former North
Central Region commander.
All other national-level officers stayed the same.
Several uniform changes
were approved during the
meeting; however, implementation and effective dates are
yet to be determined. National Board members approved wear of distinctive
maroon epaulets to be worn
by senior members on the light
blue, Air Force style shirt and
pullover sweater. A distinctive maroon "circlet" was
approved to be worn by senior
members on the service coat
and all outer-garments: The
optional wear of Battle Dress
Uniforms was also approved.
Although Air Force approval
is still pending on these items,

members should be aware of
the proposed changes.
Tw o a d d i t i o n a l u n i f o r m
items were approved that do
not require Air Force approval.
These include the change
stating that ribbons are now
optional for senior members
on the light-blue Air Force
style shirt, effective immediately. The 18 ribbon limit on
the service coat was eliminated
and the inside notch of the
collar of the service coat was
identified as an upper base
line for wear of all devices and

Board meetings not only provide a forum for the organization to conduct national business; they provide an opportunity for members to renew
acquaintances and begin new
The meeting is also a backdrop for presentation of several national-level awards.
More than 20 Civil Air Patrol
members and units were
honored at this year's board
meeting for their outstanding
contributions to the organization and the nation.
This year's Civil Air Patrol
Wing Commander of the Year
is the late Col. James Hazelrigg, former commander West
Virginia Wing. The new West
Vi r g i n i a W i n g C o m m a n d e r,
Col. William M. Nimmo, accepted the award for the wing
and paid tribute to the late
commander. "I was not wing
commander in 1989," said
Colonel Nimmo. "And on behalf of all the members of West
Virginia Wing, I wish to dedicate this award to Col. James
Hazelrigg, who died while serv-

ing as the wing commander.
This award serves as tribute
to his dedication. Civil Air
Patrol was his life. We dedicate this to Colonel Hazelrigg."
Arizona Wing's very own
Capt. Joyce Kienitz won honors as Civil Air Patrol's Public
A ff a i r s O f fi c e r o f t h e Ye a r.
Joyce has been PAO for Arizona Wing since 1987 and has
proven to be a dynamic force
in increasing public awareness of Civil Air Patrol
throughout the state.
Two of Civil Air Patrol's finest religious leaders were also
recognized for their outstanding contributions. Civil Air

Region's New Jersey Wing.
"Reverend Smalley," said Air

role model for all who desire
to achieve and grow in spiritual dimensions."
The other chaplain award

for this historic occasion, as
we come to the close of it, with
all the blessings that have been
ours to enjoy, as well as in
fellowship. We pray that all
the accomplishments of all our
past commanders, and members or our great organization, become as stepping stones
to higher planes for our new
commander and all those who
follow his leadership. We pray
Father for the wisdom that
you have, that you not only
give to our commander, but
every member of our organization, and those who support
us. Let your wisdom be our
wisdom as we follow your direction to higher planes of service in Civil Air Patrol."
I can hardly wait to cover this
fine event next year when Civil

nation's capital for the 1991
National Board, celebrating
our 50th anniversary.

Patrol members enjoyed a rare
speech that included humor,
praise, and serious facts pertaining to our organization's
future. The speech was presented at the first General
Assembly of Civil Air Patrol's
National Board meeting here,
by Congressman Rod Chandler (R-Wash.).
Congressman Chandler welcomed Civil Air Patrol's new
National Commander, Brig.
Gen. Warren J. Barry, to his
new position by beingthe first
to congratulate him. "I want
to start by congratulating
General Warren Barry on his
appointment, even before it's

Customs Service. We have a
pilot, a member of Civil Air
Patrol and a believer in us
and Civil Air Patrol programs."
Regarding Civil Air Patrol's
missions and prospects for the
future, Congressman Chandler said, "It is a fact that Civil
Air Patrol members make
sacrifices above and beyond
many of those in other volunteer groups. I assure you that
your efforts are known, understood and appreciated.
"As Civil Air Patrol reaches
the age of 50, all of us can look
back with a great deal of pride
in what has been accomplished
in the organization to which
we belong. Even more important however, we need to focus on what still needs to be
d o n e

"In Congress we are fighting hard to strike a balance
between deficit reduction and
the needs of America in order
to fully fund important programs. And then there are
the pending cuts in the defense budget, which are not
small cuts. How these cuts
will affect the Air Force and
Civil Air Patrol as its auxiliary, remain to be seen."
Congressman Chandler
spoke about Civil Air Patrol's
expanding role, "raising the
visibility of Civil Air Patrol."
"By increasing our missions," said the congressman,
"we can serve the public good
and simultaneously reinforce
the point that what we do is
absolutely invaluable. Our
case is persuasive, considering the cost effectiveness of
our mission."
As Civil Air Patrol looks
toward the future, Congress-

man Chandler believes, "we
have to remember our tradition and ourhistory. We must
never forget the heroics of our
"Let's not forget that many
of our search and rescue missions are not flown under ideal
c o n d i t i o n s . M a n y, f a r t o o
many, of our volunteer pilots
have been lost in that endeavor. Sometimes the common good simply requires us
to perform difficult, but necessary functions.
"In the economic climate of
the 1990s, an active and successful performance may offer our best prospect for surviving the budget obstacles
Congressman Chandler
proved to be very upbeat in
supporting Civil Air Patrol's
programs and was also quite
optimistic about the organization's future. "Civil Air
Patrol," said Chandler, "will
continue to thrive in its valuable public service role.
"This is an organization with
a defensible record and important mission to perform.
One that it can do at a competitive cost."
The congressman also requested those in attendance
to spread the word about Civil
A i r P a t r o l . " We h a v e g o t t o
tell our story or our story won't
get told," he said. "The result
will be a limited, not expanded
role for Civil Air Patrol and
that would be a real shame."
Congressman Chandler
closed his speech saying, "I
continue to be a dedicated voice
in Congress, there on behalf
of Civil Air Patrol and I take
great pride in that."

Barbara Vucanovich speaks on budget
By Air Force TSgt.

Civil Air Patrol News
RENO, Nev. -- Attendees
at the National Board this year
had the pleasure of listening
to Guest Speaker, Congressman Barbara F. Vucanovich,
(R-Nev.). She spoke to Civil
Air Patrol members during
the second General Assembly
about her involvement with
Civil Air Patrol and about the
organization's future in relation to our nation's budget.
"I am an enthusiastic member," said Vucanovich, "of the
Nevada Wing. I don't know
how many of you know, but
there are actually more pilots
per capita in Congress than in
most large private corpora-

tions. I keep hoping that this
will work to the advantage of
general aviation and for pilots like us."
Congressman Vucanovich
spoke about congressional
discussions involving the future of general aviation in rel a t i o n t o t h e A i r p o r t Tr u s t
Fund saying, "This year we
passed the Aviation Bill in the
House ... and as usual, the
major point of discussion was
the future of the Airport Trust
"My position has always
been that it is time to remove
the Airport Trust Fund from
the general budget and allow
for it to be put to the use for
which it was intended. Unfortunately, instead of being
able to use the trust fund for
adding better equipment to

developing more efficient use
of our commercial airports and
getting grants to improve
safety and making better use
of our smaller airports, the
fund is let~ to gather surpluses
to offset the negative impact
of the federal deficit."
Vucanovich also applauded
Civil Air Patrol and its members in their continued commitment to service toward the
nation. "I am in Congress
because I want to make a difference," she said. "I mention
that because in many ways
this sense of commitment to
public service is similar to the
reason all of you here today
believe in the mission of Civil
Air Patrol. All of you are volunteers and often your search
and rescue missions involve
flying into locations under un-

favorable weather conditions
and under other conditions
that are far from perfect. Particularly since you have added
to your mission, flying for the
Customs Service, the Drug Enforcement Agency and the
Forest Service.
"Your dedication," said the
Congressman, "and the dedication of the Nevada Wing is
really going to become more
vital with each passingyear."
She did not however, limit
her praise to Civil Air Patrol's
flying missions. "Another
mission of Civil Air Patrol,
which I think is commendable, is your commitment to
encouraging young people to
get involved. More and more,
we are discovering that one of
the great, most effective, ways
to lead young people toward

community service, is for them
to see and be inspired by their
own peers who are out there
doing community service and
providing an example."
Near the end of her speech,
she made mention of potential budget cuts and how these
cuts might affect Civil Air
Patrol. "I hear people talking
about spending the 'peace
dividend' and it frightens the
life out of me," she said. "But,
I do see a trend in Congress
toward drastic cuts in the
defense budget and l don't
think it can have anything
b u t a r i p p l e e ff e c t i n e v e r y
state. Because of this reason,
I see a larger and larger role
for Civil Air Patrol during Lhis
decade and I believe that with
this group, we are going to be
able to rise to new challenges."

According to Colonel Lis, one
of Colonel Kelly's finest achievements got its start in the early

Illinois Wing began a vigorous

phone and mail leads could be
transmitted to him on a daily
basis and turned around within
24-hours. This procedure remains today.
"The participation pattern of
Colonel Frank E. Kelly from its

it show any indication of winding down," said Colonel Lis.

Aware Course," in which persons who
travel with pilots are taught how an
aircraft flies, how to use radios and
read instruments, and how to prepare
for flight; "Air Bears," a program that
targets children in kindergarten
through the third grade to provide
them with an understanding of and
appreciation for aviation and aviation
careers, recording student attendance
in excess of 8,000 children
In addition to these programs the
Ninety-Nines provide Safety Seminars,
Instrument Flight and Visual Flight
Refresher Seminars, Ground Schools,
Biennial Flight Reviews, airport tours,
Aviation Awareness classes, career
day talks, displays, speakers, and more.

Huntsville, Ala., she managed to take
some 20 deaf students from Indiana to
the Space Camp with a $10,000 grant.

Squadron works crash,
airshow on same day
CRYSTAL LAKE, Ill. -- Ten seniors and 14 cadets from
Crystal Lake Composite Squadron here were responsible
for flight line and crowd control duties for the Lake-in-theHills Airport Fly In/Airshow recently. Capt. Robert Taylor, officer-in-charge of the squadron detail was reportedly
pleased with this years turnout, and the enthusiasm of all
squadron members.
Because of weather, few aircraft were flying-in, so flight
line activities were not as busy as in past shows. Seniors
and cadets were kept busy keeping spectators offthe ramp
area and answering questions in an information and recruiting booth_.
About an hour before the show began a semi-truck
loaded with gravel tipped over in front of the airport. First
on scene was Captain Taylor and Cadet Kevin Mattison.
Captain Taylor is an advanced first aid instructor and
Cadet Mattison is a qualified Emergency Medical Technician. The truck driver indicated he was unhurt and freed
himself from the vehicle. Captain Taylor directed Cadet
Mattison to attend to the driver until local paramedics
arrived. Cadets .~ J. Patellaro and Jim Sanchez were
directed to assist in traffic control. Local police officials
expressed their appreciation for help squadron members
The airshow and accident allowed squadron members to
use their training acquired in practice missions.

Unit initiates training
ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. -- Tar River Composite Squadron and Rocky Mount Chapter of American Red Cross
have initiated a disaster training program in preparation
for 1990's hurricane season.
Second Lt. Anthony Biondo, Emergency Services officer
for Tar River Composite Squadron, arranged for the unit
to take part in the training.
Senior Member Wayne Asbell and Lieutenant Biondo
joined the Disaster Action Team and participated in the
"Introduction to Disaster" seminar.
American Red Cross' "Introduction to Disaster" seminar
is a part of Civil Air Patrol's prerequisite training for the
Disaster Relief Award.
This training, said Lieutenant Biondo, is a preliminary
step in a series of cross-training opportunities for members of the squadron. Ultimately the goal is to have a fullytrained and certified disaster team to represent Tar River
Composite Squadron in times of emergency.

Questions get answers
GUNTER AFB, Ala. -- Officials at National Headquarters Civil Air Patrol want to know if you, the members,
have questions on the currency of Civil Air Patrol Regulations, Manuals or Pamphlets.
If anyone in the field, from Region Commander to new
recruit has a question, they may call Air Force AIC Dallas
Vick at (205)293-2077, or they may write to:

North wins Dakota Duel
JAMESTOWN, N.D. -This small town was the
site recently for the Eighth
Annual Dakota Duel.
Civil Air Patrol units from
North and South Dakota
Wings competed in individual and team events. These
events were designed to test
participants' search and
rescue skills. Each event
required accuracy and precise timing as points were
deducted for miscalculations and tardiness.
The "Top Ground Team'
for 1990 was from Gregory,
S.D., with Bismarck and
Grand Forks, N.D., placing

second and third respectively.
' To p A i r C r e w ' h o n o r s
went to Magic City Composite Squadron, Minot,
N.D., followed closely by
Bismarck and Fargo, N.D.
All team members participated in a written test
of their knowledge of Civil
Air Patrol Manual 50-15.
Winning the "Smart Guy
Award," with a perfect score,
w a s M a j . J o h n A r m o u r,
from Grand Forks, with
Seni~ber, La/*ry
Namminga, of South Dakota, a close second.
When event scores were

tallied, North Dakota Wing
squeaked out the win with
a slim one-percent margin
over South Dakota Wing.
North Dakota Wing
Commander, Col. Wynola
Thi~rton-Eide, accepted the
' t r a v e l i n g t r o p h y ' f o r ' To p
Wing,' on behalf of North
Dakota's teams.
Participation in this
year's competition, according to 1st Lt. Catherine M.
Brdu, North Dakota Wing
public affairs officer, was
excellent, with large turnouts from both sides of the

Cadets attend survival school
-- "Canopy is up! Hook's
going down!" ... screams
an instructor at Homestead
Air Force Base's Water Survival School. On that signal, a cadet on deck aboard
a large boat begins taking
long running steps. Toward
the back of this boat a
smaller boat with a tow line
pulls away and another
cadet launches into the air
on a parasail ride.
Personnel at Homestead's
Water Survival School have
established an orientation
program for Civil Air Patrol cadets. To be eligible
for this program a cadet
must be at least 16 years
old and have high scores at
Special Acts.
Recently 26 cadets and
four senior members from
Florida Wing and from as
far away as Utah Wing
attended this year's Water
Survival School cadet program. They went through
an abbreviated form of the
three-day training course
given to all Air Force aircrews. Purpose of the Air
Force training is to prepare
." .'..




aircrews for a possible overwater ejection or ditching.
Orientation the first day
included a rigorous program
of classes and water drills,
including rescue techniques,
communications, raR usage,
proper use and packing of
survival kits, water stills,
parachute control, and safe
water landings.
Safety and the importance of following instructions are two major aspects
of the orientation. Cadets
must work very hard to
memorize check lists and
demonstrate skills they had
been taught for open-water
work the next day, according to Capt. Joseph J.
Lavati, commander, Pompano Beach Cadet Squadron, Florida Wing. Instructors, said Captain Lavati,
constantly stress that in a
real-life situation, these procedures would save lives.
Cadets demonstrated
how to release parachutes
while being dragged behind
a boat, on day two. This
was done in order to simulate actual conditions of
being dragged by their

p a r a s a i l s h o u l d i t o c c u r.
Actual parasailing that
morning over Biscayne Bay
is the highlight of the program. Soaring at an altitude of 100 it., parasail lines
are released and cadets glide
to the waters below. There
they proceed to rafts and
