Themean grade point average
of those selected was above 3.7
on the 4.0 scale. Practically all
were in the top 10 percent of their
high school classes. The
selectees included 312 women
and 126 members of minority
More than 4,000 finalists were
considered for the scholarships,
which have a total value of more
than $3 million a year.
Air Force ROTC, which is an
integral part of the Air Force's

Saves Now Total 19 For Year
MAXWELL AFB, Ala. -- A red
and white Piper Cherokee 140 en
route from Oxnard, Calif., to
Bakersfield, Calif., was the object of a five-day search by the
California Wing.
CAP and the Naval Air Station
at Point Mugu, Calif., were jointly credited with one save.
After being spotted by CAP
search planes, a Navy helicopter
recovered Dennis Shaffer, the
survivor of the crash. Two others
were killed in the crash.
The California Wing expended
5,814 hours flying time, involving '
34 aircraft and 78 persons.
The survivor was spotted in the
vicinity of Sawmill Mountain,
Calif., and was in an open area
waving his arms to attract the
attention of search aircraft.
The Wyoming Wing received

credit recently for saving the
lives of three persons aboard a
civilian helicopter that disappeared while on a flight from
Bondurant, Wyo., to Afton, Wyo.
The search began when the Air
Force Rescue Coordination
Center at Scott AFB, Ill., notified
the Wyoming Department of
Aeronautics (DOA) that the
helicopter was missing.
The DOA then called on Civil
Air Patrol crews to assist. CAP
entered the search shortly before
midnight and located the missing
craft by 6 a.m.

The helicopter was equipped
with an emergency locator
t r a n s m i t t e r ( E LT ) a n d C A P
pilots used direction finding gear
to locate the aircraft from the
ELT signal.
Civil Air Patrol crews used
three light aircraft in the search,
flying six sorties and covering
150 square miles of territory.
These four latest saves bring to
19 the number of persons whose
lives have been saved in 1978 by
CAP through its emergency service program.

Hawaii Wing Slates
Flying Encampment
HONOLULU, Hawaii- The
Hawaii Wing will hold its largest
flying encampment at Oahu's
Dillingham Field from July 21Aug. 4, 1978.
Approximately 80 cadets from
all parts of the nation are expected to attend the encampment. Cadet training and
aerospace education in actual
flying operations are the goals of
the encampment.
FA A - c e r t i fi e d a n d C A P approved instructors will be the
instructors, according to Navy
Commander Davidson Luehring,
encampment commander. "We
want to give a good introduction
to flying for cadets who are interested but who have little experience. This will be in either
gliders or in powered aircraft, as
the cadets desires if the aircraft
was available."
For cadets with previous experience, there will be more advanced training. "I think we're
going to see several cadets
qualify for their FAA Private
Pilot Certificates."
Long specializing in glider
programs, the Hawaii Wing has

Overdue Aircraft
Found Crashed
In California
-- Returning from a practice
search and rescue exercise
recently, 1st Lt. Leonard Garbe
of the Santa Susana Sr. Sq.
(California Wing) was tuning his
radio to the Burbank approach
frequency when he heard a
strong emergency locator
transmitter (ELT) signal.
He contacted the squadron
commander and the two were
able to locate the approximate
transmitting site by triangulation
on Rocky Peak north of the Simi
Freeway. They reported the fix
to the FAA and were told that a
woman had previously reported
an overdue aircraft.
The pilot and his three children
were returning to Van Nuys from
a flight to Pismo Beach during a
lull in a rain storm. However, the
weather continued to deteriorate
after they were in the air.
After a mission number was
obtained from the Air Force
Rescue Coordination Center, the
mission coordinator, Lt. Col. Betty Decker, activated two pilots,
Garbe and the squadron commander, 1st Lt. Gary Keenliside,
as well as a ground team, Maj.
Bryon and Capt. Melody
Brammer, in a truck equipped
with direction finding equipment.
Members of the Ventura County sheriff and fire departments
were also on hand for the search.
A joint command post was set up
in a canyon near the area where
the ELT signal was thought to
come from.
Ground crews, working
through the night in rain and fog,
located the crash in the early
morning hours. Because roads
had been washed out, they had to
climb the mountainside on foot.
The pilot and passengers had
been killed in the impact.
The pilots and truck operators
each received "find" ribbons.

Weather Brings Busy Mon tb F, r , rado
By 2nd Lt. Kathleen A. Baysinger
North Valley Comp. Sq.
Late winter is often a busy
season for the Colorado Wing, according to Maj. Sonny Elgin,
Colorado Wing director of
Emergency Services.
The busy season this year
began Feb. 25, when a Beech
Debonaire disappeared between
Laramie, Wyo., and Aspen, Colo.
Mission headquarters was established at Eagle, Colo.,
between the two cities. Air crews
and ground teams immediately
went to work.
The following evening, a
Cessna 206 was reported missing
somewhere south of Denver. No
flight plan had been filed, so
neither the intended route nor the
destination were known. Ground
teams and a CAP Cessna Skylane
with direction finding equipment
were dispatched to track an
emergency locator transmitter
(ELT) signal east of Colorado
The wreckage of the plane was
located several hours later with
the help of a local real estate
agent, who had seen the
wreckage but not recognized it as
an aircraft and did not report it
until hearing radio reports that a
plane was missing in that area.
That same night a Grumman
American was reported down
near Elk Mountain in Wyoming.
The pilot was a Colorado Wing
member returning the plane to
Denver after it had been: strand-

ed on Colorado's western slope
during a previous search.
Again, ground teams with
direction finding (DF) equipment were dispatched in a heavy
snowstorm to track the ELT, and
the aircraft was found a few
hours later. The pilot had pulled
out all the survival equipment he
had and was in good condition
despite the freezing
Meanwhile, the search for the
Beech Debonaire continued. That
mission was in its third day when
a CAP pilot-owned Cessna 172
went down while searching. Both
pilot and observer walked away
from the wreckage.
On March 2, a Beech Baron
was cleared to make an instrument approach to a Southwestern
Colorado airport, but it never
reached the terminal. The plane
was completing an instrument
flight from Arlington, Tex., to
Durango, Colo. Civil Air Patrol
ground teams and local
volunteers searched throughout
the day in snow before locating
the aircraft about a mile from
the end of the runway.
Eight days and several ELT's
later, a report of low flying aircraft and possible crashing
sounds was received by the
sheriff's office west of Colorado
Springs. Colorado Civil Air
Patrol ground teams and local
volunteers again braved the
weather and located the Cessna

About the same time, a Beech
Bonanza disappeared from the
radar screen southeast of
Denver. It took ground teams
about half an hour to locate the
wreckage of that aircraft.
The search for the Beech
Debonaire had continued
throughout the two weeks, except
for periods of extremely bad
weather. Finally, on March 11,
the aircraft was spotted by CAP
search pilots Len Bluebaugh and
Jack Dyni near the top of 12,500foot North Rawah Peak.
After locating the Debonaire,
Colorado Wing members thought
they might have time to relax.
But they could not quit yet.
That evening, a Cessna Sky
Hawk XPII made an emergency
landing north of Denver. The
pilot, communicating with other
aircraft, was instructed to turn
on his ELT. Two DF-equipped
aircraft and four ground teams
headed out to find him, and
several hours later, the plane and
passengers were located.
The pilot reported that the
plane had developed engine trouble and he landed in a pasture 60
miles north of Denver.
With a little over a week to
recover, except for several more
ELT incidents, Colorado Wing
volunteers were again called out
on March 28. This time the objective was a twin engine aircraft
lost somewhere between
Douglas, Ariz., and Lamar, Colo.
Colorado Wing search efforts

were concentrated in southern
Colorado for two days before
assistance in New Mexico was
By the end of March, Colorado
Wing volunteers had donated
more than 30,000 manhours,
located eight downed aircraft,
traced eight ELT's, and saved
three lives. There were several
additional aircraft incidents in
which Civil Air Patrol assistance
was not required.
It was a bad six weeks for light
aircraft in Colorado.

members of Civil Air Patrol,

rescue activities through the
organization are shown below.

Helicopters: Experience In Motion
By Lt. Col. Frederick Carter
Let's take a brief look at "rotormania," the helicopter
pilot's world where fun, frustration, and physics
defy imagination.

Helicopters are toys! Anyone can fly choppers!
Choppers can hover, fly straight up, down, backwards,
and sidewards at any speed and altitude because of that
humongous fan on top! Choppers are very forgiving, and
if something goes wrong -- anytime -- anyplace -- all the
pilot does is relax and autorotate (glide) to an easy landing. That's why rotorheads (people who fly choppers)
come in second best in the "World's Greatest Pilot" competition. And so goes the myth.
Let's look at the facts as revealed to Ronald Rotorhead,
the fixed-wing jock who decided to learn the art of
motionless operation in a "Da Vinci screw wing."
Ronald's first wingless air machine was IFR equipped,
reciprocating engine powered, and supported by a single
rotor. Another small rotor was stuck on the tail boom to
shoo flies away. Ronald's gallant flight instructor believed in staying one step behind his trainee during
maneuvers, so Ronald soon gained first-hand experience
in actual, attention-getting situations.
The flight instructor spent a brief ten minutes before
the first flight explaining helicopter aerodynamics and
helping Ronald identify the pilot's seat. Fortunately, the
instructor performed the takeoff and later gave control of
the aircraft to his student. Ronald immediately grasped
the controls in a death grip and executed a series of thrilling maneuvers which rapidly progressed to near, certain
disaster before the instructor recovered from shock and
took control.
From these maneuvers, Ronald learned that:
a. A helicopter will stall if flown too fast. In Ron's
helicopter, the nose pitched up and rolled to the left. As
"blade stall" was abruptly entered, the main rotor flexed, contacted the nose, and removed one antenna
mounted thereon.

b. If flown sideways beyond allowable limits, airframe shuddering and loss of directional control results.
c. If flown too fast backwards, a flight regime known
as "reverse command" may be entered. When Ron quickly pulled the cyclic (control stick to you fixed jocks! )
back further to raise the nose, the nose went down instead. Up came the tail boom into the main rotor plane of
rotation. Scratch another piece of metal; luckily only a

d. If flown too slow at a high power setting while out of
ground effect, a situation called "power settling" may occur. This condition is similar to running on a treadmill.

The helicopter continues to stir up the air, but the craft
descends at a rate approaching 1,500-2,000 feet per minute
in some choppers. If not corrected, descent may continue
until touchdown minus two.

Ron's fearless instructor thought instrument flight
training would bring out Ronald's hidden talent--it did!
After donning a hood (view limiting device) which forced
him to fly by reference to instruments, Ron entered a left
turn. The turn needle initially showed a turn in the opposite direction as some chopper turn needles do.
Ron quickly corrected by straight-legging the left rotor
pedal and increasing the bank angle. The instructor swiftly called for time out and then described the
idiosynchrasies of rotorcraft instrument flight. The discussion included comments on the altitude indicator and
the importance of comparison with other supporting instruments. Ron soon understood that a helicopter's flight
path doesn't always follow the aircraft's nose!

crease the challenge and subsequent need for accurate
foresight. Add also the possibility of "power settling"
previously described.

c. Coordination between throttle' setting and rotor
RPM control is critical during approach and go-around as
one setting or indication has a resultant effect on the
other. Both determine total lift supplied by the main
d. Landings may be made from a hover or while moving forward, terrain permitting.
Once, while Ron slowly lifted the helicopter to begin
takeoff, a rapid vertical bouncing occurred. Again the instructor took over. Ron had experienced "ground
resonance," a condition which may result in damage to
the structure if not corrected.

Ronald decided his nerves couldn't stand much more.
He released the cyclic and threw up his hands. The instructor panicked! Another lesson learned. Chopper pilots
shouldn't release controls with the rotor turning (some
models excepted). Most helicopters require constant
pressure on the cyclic to prevent the stick from falling
over and changing the rotational plane of the main rotor.
In short, don't relax or you may cut off your own tail!
Hover practice came next. Ron locked in on the controls and caged his eyeballs on a nearby windsock for
visual reference. His concentration was matched only by
an extreme case of jaw locking. Perfect! Everything
stable! Except the wind appeared to be changing. The
wind sock initially extended to the left, then directly
away, now extended to the right. Ron's instructor
described the phenomenon as a common occurrence.
Trainees forget helicopters can fly sideways regardless
of wher, e they're pointed. While hovering, pilots must be
aware of fore, aft, sidewards and vertical movement, all
of which can be done with the helicopter's nose pointing at
an object directly ahead.
So the moral of our story is that helicopters, choppers,
helos, Da Vinci screw wings, frustrated palm trees,
eggbeaters, or whatever you prefer to call them are not a
cinch to fly. Helicopter pilots must be very cautious and
performance conscious.
Finally, it has been said that fixed-wing aircraft experience six or seven forces in flight, whereas,
helicopters experience 13. Whatever the score, the
emphasis on quality maintenance and quality pilots cannot be ignored.
The next time you see a genuine "rotorhead," be nice.
Helicopters save lives too!
At last, the abused aircraft and frayed-nerve occupants
headed for the landing practice area. Ron soon learned
a. Performance charts show power required to hover
at various heights above the surface. Charts also show
power available.
b. No charts show the power or distance required to
slow or stop the aircraft. Momentum must be considered
in stopping or a planned 15-foot hover can easily be consumed as part of a 200-foot stopping distance. High
altitudes, tall trees, sloping terrain, gusty winds, downdrafts, heavy gross weights, and abrupt. control usage in. ..

Five-State Search
Locates. Crash Site
By 1st Lt. Mary Ann Simmons
Norfolk Comp. Sq.
Delaware, Maryland, North
Carolina, South Carolina and
Virginia Wings were called out to
search the East Coast recently.
The search objective was a.
Cherokee, with two people on
board. The pilot, James Ball, and
his passenger, Walter Nottle, had
departed Cheswold, Md., at 4:30
p.m. March 10 en route to St.
Petersburg, Fla.
The pilot did not file a flight
plan and was not missed until he
failed to return home at the end
of the weekend.
Civil Air Patrol personnel
made investigations and concluded that he probably did not make
it past the Tidewater area. With
the good teamwork of the wings
working together, ramp checks
were made, further eliminating
the possibility that the plane was
on the ground safe and sound at
an airport somewhere.
A Virginia Wing aircraft,
piloted by Capt. Melvin Carey,
spotted what appeared to be an
airplane under the water in
Metomkin Inlet just off Melfa on
the Eastern shore of Virginia at 3
p.m. March 17. This was verified
by a second aircraft, piloted by
Capt. Buzz Massengale, and the
Coast Guard was called in.

The Coast Guard was directed
to the plane in the water by FM
radio and a phone patch to the
HF by the mission coordinator.
The Coast Guard confirmed that
an aircraft was in the water, but
due to the late hour a diver would
not be put down to check its identity until the next day.
A Virginia Wing aircraft from
the Winchester Sr. Sq. (Virginia
Wing) was given an area to
search en route back to home
base. The pilot, Donald Ratcliff
and two observers, departed the
Accomack County Airport at
Melfa, Va., at 5:50 p.m. At 6:05
p.m. Ratcliff reported seeing
wreckage about three miles
southwest of the Melfa airport.
A ground team from the
Eastern Shore Comp. Sq.
(Virginia Wing) was sent and
confirmed that the target had
been located. Both the pilot and
passenger had been killed. The
mission coordinator had kept the
aircraft searching because he
knew there was a possibility that
the airplane in the water was not
the target.
S t a n l e y F r a z i e r, a i r p o r t
m a n a g e r, s a i d , " T h e p l a n e
couldn't have been in a better
location not to be found. Even
though it could be seen from the
air, it was so close to the airport
traffic pattern that any pilots
over the wreckage would normal-

ly be concentrating on either taking off or landing. They would not
be sight-seeing."
At about 6:30 p.m. the remaining aircraft were dispatched to
their home bases. An airplane
from the Norfolk Comp. Sq.
(Virginia Wing) was en route
home when approach control informed the pilot that another aircraft was going to try an unplanned landing on a race track five
miles south of the Melfa airport
because of fuel starvation.
The Norfolk aircraft returned
to the area and circled until the
ground team could reach the
downed aircraft. The plane,
piloted by Thomas Heckett of
Jacksonville, N.C., landed with
no damage in a field near the
race track. The pilot and three
passengers were not injured.
Civil Air Patrol members
guarded both planes during the
night and assisted the people
from the second aircraft with
transportation back to the airport.
The plane in the water was
identified the next day as being of
World War II vintage. A local
resident remembered seeing it
crash in 1945 while it was attempting a landing at a nearby Naval
Air Station. The pilot had been
rescued from that crash.

study materials and the appropriate contract are ordered separately as follows:
a. If the cadet still has the last contract on which he was working before allowing his membership to lapse, he
should forward the completed contract, along with $ 1.50 and an order for the next contract, to TTHE.
b. If the cadet has lost or misplaced the last contract he was working on before his membership lapsed, he
should request a duplicate contract from TTHE; then upon completion of the contract, it should be returned to
TTHE, along with $1.50 and order for the next contract.

aware that up to five funded (aviation, automotive fuel and oil, and communications cost) evaluations may be conducted this calendar year. One primary SAR and one primary Disaster Relief (DR) evaluation will be conducted.
Additionally, two wing SAR tests and one wing DR test may be authorized if required. If you have questions, contact your liaison officer.
4. TAP AND ITAP. The process of extracting radar flight to establish a last-known position has had a varied,
constantly changing history. In an effort to explain what it is called today, the following is provided. It all began
with DLOG - - Data Log came along first; however, as ref'mements to the system were developed the name was
changed to DART - - Data Analysis Reduction Tool or Data Automated Reduction Tool (depending on which FAA
office you talk to). DART and DLOG were already acronyms used by FAA personnel for other meanings. Therefore, DPICT - - Data Pictorial came next, but that was not truly descriptive enough, so along came TAP - - Track
Analysis Program. TAP was not put through the acronym check, and later someone said that stands for Technical
Appraisal Program, which has been used for years in the recertification program for ATC personnel, i.e., tower

selected because they (FAA) feel they will eventually select a permanent name but in the meantime, additional
changes will not be surprising.
5. NEW INFORMATION OFFICERS. If you are a new Information Officer, we have something for you at
National Headquarters, just for the asking. Just send us your name, your squadron name, and your own home
mailing address. In return, we will send you (free and postpaid) an "Information Officer's Starter Kit," a kit
of things to help you get started as an Information Officer. The most inportant item in the kit is the CAP
Manual 190-1 (Information Officer's Handbook). In reality, this manual is a complete short course in how to be
an information officer, how to write news releases, how to write television and radio spots, how to do a lot of
things you need to do. You should make it your constant companion and reference book on the CAP Information
Program. In addition, the kit contains other material which deals with special aspects of the Information Program
to help you do a better job. It also contains samples of recruiting leaflets and materials which are available in
reasonable quantities from the Directorate of Information at National Headquarters. All you have to do to get the
Information Officer's Starter Kit is to ask for it. We especially want new lOs to have one, but if you are an old hand
in this field and have lost or misplaced the things in your original kit, we will be glad to send you one too. Just
address your letter as follows (all the address you need): CAP-USAF/OII, Maxwell AFB AL 36112.
of communications to the public in promoting Civil Air Patrol in general and your local CAP unit in particular. We
need your assistance. We are asking for your cooperation in getting out the word about Civil Air Patrol in your
community. To help you accomplish this, HQ OI will have available to you on request, on or about 1 June 1978,
a tape of CAP radio spots, 20 and 30 seconds in length. AN IMPORTANT REMINDER: A few CAP units are
substituting their own local CAP unit address for the National Headquarters address at the end of each spot of the
tape. This can easily be done with the cooperation of your local radio station(s). This is why we periodically
remind unit commanders and information officers to establish a good working relationship with the local radio
station manager or program director. Keep in mind, radio and TV stations are not obligated to air CAP public service announcements in their public service programming. The stations are usually overwhelmed with national and

d CAP spots requires the cooperation of a station announcer to record your local unit name and address
ae number in place of the national address. Some CAP members who are proficient in the use of tape
lachines and have a good voice, have recorded the name and address of their unit themselves. It takes
six or seven seconds, example: "For information contact the Montgomery Cadet Squadron at 2325

B y Maj. Frank A. Burnham
HQ. California Wing
RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- Two old
rimers, a cadet and a young
senior member who only recently
made the transition from cadet
ranks weren't credited with a
find or a save in mission earlier
this year, but Carol Robson of
Fort Collins, Colo.,' knows her 10year-old daughter, Michel, is
alive today because of their work
and especially because CWO Bob
Keilholtz of Pasadena Cadet Sq.
17 (California Wing), made a difficult, on-the-spot, field decision.
The mission began when the
pre-1960 Cessna 182, piloted by
Gene McCaffrey of Boulder,
Colo., carrying his wife, Rachel,
and their granddaughter, failed
to arrive at San Diego's
Lindbergh Field on a flight from
Prescott, Ariz.
The California Wing Mission
Data Team confirmed that the
aircraft had reached the Colorado River entering California and
that the pilot did intend continuing to San Diego despite the
weather conditions.
With almost all of Southern
California socked in, mission
coordinator, Capt. Rod Lattimer
of Group 3, deployed ground DF
teams into the area of greatest
Several airliners reported receiving ELT signals in an area
west of the Julian VOR to the
Los Angeles center.
Keilholtz was dispatched to
operate a radio relay from Mt.
Laguna, an area not covered by
Southern California's four VHF
repeater stations.
Capt. Gary Limpus of the
California Wing Staff and his
wife, Capt. Dolores Limpus,
spent more than 12 hours in the
field the first afternoon and night
and returned the next morning.
The ELT was difficult to track,
but they finally triangulated it

and narrowed the area to a few
square miles.
When Limpus tried to radio the
coordinates to base, Keilholtz,
listening to both sides of the conversation, realized that the informarion was not getting through.
He also knew that on the east
sideof the mountains a San Diego
County Sheriff's helicopter was
just landing at Ocrillo Wells after
searching for some missing
Keilholtz, who also monitored
the weather at the coordinates
given by the DF team, saw that a
momentary clearing had ocanother location."
"Keilholtz made a field decision, and a good one," California
Wing Mission Control Officer Lt.
Col. Betty Decker declares,
"when he told the DF team ~o
maintain position in the face of
instructions being radioed (but
not being received) for it to go to
another location.
He also directed the sheriff's
helicopter to the scene on
another frequency and provided
communications between the units until they were able to talk
The clouds remained out of the
area just long enough for the
helicopter to spot the wreckage
and land nearby and take Michel
to safety."
According to doctors, the girl
was in fair condition with a
broken jaw and suffering from
exposure. Her grandparents did
not survive the incident.
Authorities agree that with the
weather situation, her injuries
and the probable deterioration of
her morale, Michel probably
would not have survived another
day and night.
In a telephone call to the
California Wing, Carol Robson
asked that her gratitude be
relayed to all involved, especially the DF team and Keilholtz.
"Just tell those people I ask
God to bless them," she said.
