U.S. Department of

Officials announce SAR school schedule
GI,;N'I'I"I{ AFB, Ala. -- National Search and Rescue Sch¢)ol has announced
a schedule fbr the Inland Search and Rescue Course f'or 13.,cal 1991.
This five-day course provides introductory, refresher, or information search
and rescue training to: military search a n d r t ~ s c u e supervisors; search and
rescue coor(linators assigned to rescue coor(litmti(m center'.~; active duty ('ivil
Air PatroI-USAl" liaison officers: Civil Air Patrol emergency services rots>ion
coordinators; and civilian personnel fl'om federal, state, local and volunteer
search and rescue organizations responsible for search and rescue mission
pla n n ing.
A major objective of the course is to increase coordination and cooperation
between federal and non-federal search and rescue management, personnel.
Training is general in nature and does not incorporate field exercises.
Courses consist of classroom lectures and at least one practical exercise.
Emphasis is placed on inland search planning |actors, resources available to
search phtnners and procedures for interagency coordination of" rt, sotirces.
Civil Air Patrol procedures for a missing aircraft search are incorporated
with selected segments of Natioual Search and Rescue's 'Managing the Search
Function." Thus. both air and ground search managers and planners receive
information on how to integrate procedures.
Upon gTaduation, successtul participants should:
IUnderstand how to manage a search.
IBe familiar with a preplan and its importance to a successful mission.
IBe able to identify basic search and rescue resources.

three state wildlife biologists

"Several species we monitor are on the Endangered

Civil Air Patrol News
November 1990

Times dictate tighter controls
By Brig. Gen.
Wa r r e n J . B a r r y
national eommander
Civil Air Patrol
year at this time, many people
were talking about much improved economic conditions in
the 1980s and the fact that
double-digit inflation was no
longer with us.
R e g r e t t a b l y, t h e s e m u c h
improved economic conditions
are in great upheawd. One
only needs to turn on their
television and witness our
national fiscal problems: The
Congressional struggle with
deficit spending, the inability
to produce a budget on time,
the uncertainty of GrammRudman sequestration each
year, and rising oil prices to
appreciate the need for a
prudent national fiscal policy.
Tr u e , t h e s e a r e n a t i o n a l
problems; but, are they Civil
Air Patrol problems? Just how
do these many things affect
Civil Air Patrol, and what can
we do about them?

Let us explore ways Civil
Air Patrol might be directly
impacted, and decide if we
can make a difference.
The Air Force's funding, and
thus Civil Air Patrol's,. has
been initially reduced by 30
percent across the board. This
reduction of available funds
has and will continue to impact Civil Air Patrol well into
the year. The most obvious
and most immediate result of
these cuts is reduced funds
fbr Search and Rescue/Disaster Relief training at this time.
As can be seen by this one
example, potential for reduced
funding with a direct impact
onCivil Air Patrol is quite real.
Austere funding, reduced
budgets, and spending cuts,
are very much a part of Civil
Air Patrol's corporate budget
as well.
Realities of declining membership and other revenue
losses resulted in a 10 percent
cut in National Headquarters
Civil Air Patrol's operating
budget for fiscal year 1991.
A d d i t i o n a l l y, m a n y o f o u r

Wings have experienced significant reductions in state
appropriations further complicating execution of our
It goes without saying that
sound resource management
philosophy should be part of
o u r w a v o f l i f e F u r t h e r, i t
should De part ofevery aspect
of Civil Air Patrol's day-today operation.
Sound resource management principles can be as
s i m p l e a s t u r n i n g o ff l i g h t s
and making fewer copies of
publications. Or it may be as
complex as maintaining aircraft and vehicles. Yes, we
can make a difference regardless of the task. Each can have
a significant impact in sound
resource management.
Commanders and their staff
have primary responsibility
for effective management of
Civil Air Patrol assets. Commanders must closely direct
use of these limited resources.
Finance committee members
must be completely and thoroughly familiar with all as-

pects of a unit's financial
condition and must use this
experience and unique knowledge in developing REALISTIC budgets.
Every budget must be closely
monitored, and every expenditure will be scrutinized to
ensure maximum contribution
to the mission.
In our efBrt to conserve and
better manage resources, we
must never lose sight of the
many services and resources
provided to Civil Air Patrol by
h)cal, state, and federal government agencies, as well as
the Department of Defense.
Utilities, space, supplies, and
funds provided by these
sources have proven invaluable. Without this support,
many Civil Air Patrol units
would be close to shutting down
and others would function
much less efficiently or effectively.
tlowever, commanders and
finance committees can't do it
all. Success or failure of effective resource management
rests with EVERY MEMBER


of Civil Air Patrol.
Yes. Resource management
is YOUR responsibility!
If Civil Air Patrol is to continue meeting future challenges; it will take ALL OUR
EFFORTS to ensure maximum and prudent use of our
limited and precious resources.
Let's put forth our efforts with
the Civil Air Patrol pride and
honor we all share and provide. Give it your .... best.

Colonel Nail suggests points to ponder
By Air Force
Col. Joseph M. Nail
executive director
Civil Air Patrol
I recently received a call
from an individual who was
having difficulty contacting
the local Civil Air Patrol unit.
How could this be 1 thought.
Surely, our units make their
presence and availability
known to the general public.
Surely, there are ways potential members can contact units
other than through National

lleadquarters Civil Air" Patrol.
While thinking about this
situation, I came up with a
tbw "points to ponder" fbr those
who may share the problem
this unit had.
First, how would a newcomer to your community contactyour unit? Is the Civil Air
Patrol phone number listed ira
the local telephone book?
If your unit meets on a military base, does the base operator, base commander's of-

rice, public affairs office and
command post have the name
and phone numt)er of Civil
Ai r Patrol's point of contact?
Does the local airport staff
have this information? Are
there any Civil Air Patrol
posters on the airport's bulletin boards etc.?
Can newcomers get Civil
Air Patrol information they
need from your local chamber
of commerce, police department, or other emergency .~rvices or youth organizations?

If you don't feel absolutely
comfortable with your answers
to these questions; think about
whys to improve the sittmtion.
'i'ake time to notify agencies that provide information

Members respond as heat rises
HILL AFB, Utah -- A "Fun and
Fund" day for Itill Air Force Base
Senior Squadron unexpectedly turned
into a life saving opportunity as temperatures rose to more than 100 degrees. The occasion was the 50th
anniversary celet)ration of the founding of the base.
The Air Force Thunderbirds performed an aerial demonstration and
a n F - 11 7 A S t e a l t h F i g h t e r w a s o n
display. These and other attractions
were enough to lure an estimated
350,000 people.
The heat began to take its toll late in
the afternoon. First, a teenage boy
suffering from the heat asked for sanetuary at the squadron's information
A few minutes later, a middle-aged

woman in more serious condition arrived at the booth. 1st Lt. William
Grubel, a member of tile squadron
and certified Emergency Medical
Technician, administered first aid to
her. As she began to cool and stabilize, a second woman entered the booth
and collapsed.
At this point the squadron's booth
transformed to a first aid station. Tile
condition of the latest victim, clearly
demanded more advance medical attention. Lieutenant Grubel began
assisting the victim, aided by Capt.
Larry Brown and 1st Lt. Trent Searle.
Other squadron members went out
searching for water, ice, and material
from which to make cold compacts.
Civil Air Patrol volunteers performed
crowd control to keep curious onlook-

ers from interfering with rescue efforts and, more importantly, went to
summon one of several ambulances
and medical teams stationed along
the flight line.
General confusion existed as most
of the 350,000 people moved toward
exits at the conclusion of the Thunderbird show. Because of this, and the
fact that a number of other heat related medical emergencies existed,
more than 20 minutes passed before
medical teams arrived at the squadron's booth.
During this time, one victim suffered seizures and on three occasions
stopped breathing. Each time Lieutenant Grubel restored breathing and
the cooling process was continued.
When medical teams arrived, oxygen

was administered and an I.V. started.
The victim was then transported to a
nearby hospital. Her condition on the
following day had improved to the
point that she was released and returned home.
Every member of the squadron who
participated in this activity, accordi n g t o B o b E d e r, U t a h W i n g p u b l i c

manner. The squadron's commander
has recommended award of the Certificate of Recognition for Lifesaving

As part of their training, cadets
spent the nine days camping in tents

Cadets al so practiced fi ndi ng Emergency Locator Transmitters with handheld direction finding equipment. In
one exercise, an ELT was hidden 50
miles from the school. With information from satellites, cadets drove to
the area, used their hand-held equipment to find the signal, plotted it on
maps and quickly located and turned
off the simulated distress signal.
Other training included radio communications, signaling aircraft from
the ground, first aid, and searches for
missing people.
"We're please by the dedication and
performance shown by our cadets,"
said Lt. Col. Mark R. Caiello, Vankeuren Cadet Squadron commander.
"They're working h:t-d to be ready

Members assist in emergency landing
GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- A
chartered Cessna 421, with
eight people aboard was forced recently to make an emergency landing. On scene to
assist were five members of
Arizona Wing's Goodyear
Composite Squadron.
The twin-engine Cessna took
off from Scott.sdale Airport and
upon retracting its gear, the
pilot noticed an "unsafe right
gear" warning. A look in his
mirror confirmed the gear was
down, and worse, the wheel
was almost parallel to the wing.
The pilot notified Scottsdale
tower and after several unsuccessful attempts to re-cycle
the gear, he flew a few slowspeed, low passes over the field
for tower and ground personnel to confirm the unsafe gear
Subsequent alert telephone
and radio calls to Federal
Aviation Administration officials, aircraft manufacturer
and owners, determined that
a ground loop on touchdown
ranked high on the probability list. Given the slim, safe
recovery percentage, officials
determined the best course of
action would be for the pilot to
circle and burn off as much
fuel as possible to reduce
chances of fire upon landing.
The next problem was where
to land.
Scottsdale Airport officials
did not feel they had proper
emergency equipment to
handle the situation. Neither
d i d C h a n d l e r, D e e r Va l l e y,

Glendale or Goodyear airports.
.That left Williams and Luke
Air Force Bases.
Officials called Air Force
Brig. Gen. Ralph T. Browning, 832nd Air Division commander at Luke Air Force
Base. General Browning
solved the problem by approving the request to allow tile
emergency landing at the
installation. Two hours and
33 minutes after takeoff, the
C-421 was cleared to land.
Five people handling the
emergency response at Luke
Air Force Base were members
of Goodyear Composite Squadron. All had Civil Air Patrol
experience in handling emergencies and general aviation

Capt. Joe Rodrigues, an Air
Force technical sergeant assigned to the base hospital.
" A t 11 a . m . , w e w e r e a d vised of a civilian in-flight
emergency with unsafe right
gear inbound to Luke," said
Captain Forsythe. "We knew
that it was a twin-engine aircraf~ and that there were eight
people aboard."
"It was a normal crash response, with the exception of
it being for a civilian aircraft,"

EMERGENCY LANDING - This Cessna 421, with its right landing gear broken, recently made a safe
emergency landing at Luke AFB, Ariz. On scene responding to the emergency were five members of
Arizona Wing's Goodyear Composite Squadron. (Civil Air Patrol Photo by Capt. (Air Force TSgt.) Lee

When the aircraft was inbound for landing, "we proceeded out to the taxiway in
the Crash Recovery Vehicle,"
said Lieutenant Faria, an Air
Force staff sergeant assigned
to the bases' Crash Recovery
Shop. "The pilot did a low
pass for the tower to visually
check the gear; then went back
around for final approach."
Guiding his aircraft toward
the ground, the pilot cleared

the barrier and floated to
"It was a great landing! A
professional landing," Captain
Forsythe exclaimed. "He
landed on the left gear and
kept off the right until the
aircraft nosed down."
"He touched down smartly,
right by the 50 foot mark,"
said Lieutenant Faria. "His
piloting skills were superb."
"The aircraft came to a full
stop on the runway, with us
and the fire department right
behind him," said Captain
Forsythe. "Pilot and passen-

gers evacuated and fire department officials declared it
fire safe."
Captain Lee Owens, an Air
Force technical sergeant assigned to 832nd Air Division
Public Affairs, took pictures
and handled media escort at
the scene.
"Luke was the safest place
he could have landed," said
Lieutenant Faria. "Coupled
with his experience and skills,
the pilot had access to the best
crash and recovery equipment."


Texas team locates crash
B O E R N E , Te x a s - - A t 3
a.m., recently, Hill Country
Composite Squadron roused
its members to search for a
missing aircraft.
The emergency call came
through channels from Air
Force Rescue Coordination
Center, Scott AFB, Ill., to Maj.
E. Meeks, Group 19 Emergency Services officer in San
Antonio, who contacted Capt.
Gino Mondini, Hill Country
Composite Squadron Emergency services officer. Telephone calls immediately went
to pilots and ground forces
throughout the area.
Major Meeks, as mission
coordinator, set up mission
base at Bulverde Airport and
launched a corporate T41 from
Stinson Field with Maj. Chuck
Morrill as pilot and Lt. Cols.
Ed Billman and Bob Mills as
observer and scanner.
Captain Mondini and 1st
L t . M a r g a r e t C o s b y, H i l l
Country Composite Squadron
public affairs officer, prepared
for a flight in the event additional air search activity was
needed before ground teams

set out with Emergency Locator Transmitter direction finding equipment.
With coordinates given,
ground teams worked their
way from Boerne into the
Camp Bullis area. At Camp
Bullis, Army personnel joined
in the search and helped cover
all areas of the large military
reservation which is located
north of San Antonio.
Attempting to get a fix on
the ELT was difficult, according to Lieutenant Cosby, due
to obstruction from hills and
radio towers in the area.
Three ground teams converged on the crash site almost simultaneously with 1st
Lt. John Sipple and Maj. Jerry
Lien being first on scene. They
were soon joined by Col. Fred
Deyeso, Texas Wing's assistant Emergency Services officer, 1st Lt. Alan Butcher, 1st
Lt. Harlon Thompson and two

teams headed to the site.

she said, the aircraft may not
have been found for a long
time since it had crashed about
six feet up a tree and was
concealed by the tree's foliage.
San Antonio International
Airport's Radar Approach
Control reportedly had the
aircraft on radar and received
communications that it was
having engine trouble while
approaching San Antonio.
Reportedly the aircraft was
two miles from Bulverde Airport when it went offradar.
One man was killed, the
other critically injured. The
survivor was evacuated by the
Army's 507th Military Air
Service Team to Brooke Army

According to Lieutenant
Cosby, sleepy Civil Air Patrol
searchers went home without
even a first cup of coffee. "But
it was all worth it," she said,
"to have searchers locate even
one person still alive and
possibly having helped save
his life."

Training heightens cadets skills, knowledge
GUNTER AFB, Ala. -- Approxinately 190 Civil Air Patrol cadets
uccessfully completed Air Training
~'ommand Familiarization Courses and
~ararescue Orientation Courses recently.
ATCFC courses were held at Columbus AFB, Miss.; Laughlin AFB,
Texas; and Mather AFB, Calif.
I n J u l y, c a d e t s a t C o l u m b u s a n d
Laughlin Air Force Bases experienced,
first-hand, Undergraduate Pilot Training. Not only did cadets participate in
flying-related activities, they toured
base facilities including maintenance
hangars, where they talked with maintenance personnel; air traffic control
facilities; base weather stations; and
physiological training centers.
Cadets received instruction about
flight planning, aircraft systems and
other UPT academic areas of study.
They also received briefings about
Soviet awareness, drug and alcohol
abuse, and leadership.
According to Air Force Reserve Majs.
David Blubaugh and Charles Derrick, activity directors at Columbus
and Laughlin Air Force Bases respectively, the T-37 and T-38 simulator
training and physiological training
were highlights of both encampments.
Major Blubaugh said, "Cadets had a
terrific time, and I am confident we
accomplished our objective by providing each of them a very detailed look
at Undergraduate Pilot Training."
In August, cadets attending ATCFC

Army ROTC faces cuts

By Debbie A. Owens
American Forces
Information Service
Individuals who plan to join Army
ROTC will have 50 fewer units to
choose from because of budget reductions and Army requirements for fewer
lieutenants. The 50 units, at colleges
and universities in 27 states, will be
closed by the end of this academic

Department of Defense is reviewing all officer training programs, to
include officer candidate/training
schools, service academies and ROTC.
The recent Army action, however, is
not part of the review.
When the reductions are completed,
363 units will remain in all 50 states,

Advanced Pararescue Orientation
Course is an intense follow-on to the
basic course. It is mandatory for a
cadet to successfully complete the basic
course before he or she can attend the
advanced course.
"Cadets unanimously agreed that
the most exciting aspect of tile program was mountain rescue training,
but I believe even more impressive,
was the way all cadets reacted so
positively to demanding physical and
mental standards set by instructors,"
said Air Force Reserve Lt. Col. Richard C. Boyer, Fort Knox activity director.
Cadets who completed ATCFC and
PJOC will have many interesting and
exciting stories to tell fellow cadets
and friends about their experiences
and what it takes to be an Air Force
pilot, navigator, or pararescue specialist.




TSgt. Scott Gearen, from the 1550th
C, onlbat Crew Training Wing, gave
cadets in-depth training during the
Advanced and Basic Pararescue Orientation Courses in ,June and ,/uiy. In
August they went to Fort Kno×, Ky.,
a n d G e o r g e Wa s h i n g t o n N a t i o n a l
Forest, Va., to conduct courses there.
Not only did cadets have to be at
least 15-years-old and have an encampment to their credit to be selected: they had to be in excellent

physically demanding," said Air Force
Lt. Col. Allen M. Johnson, project
officer for the course at George Washington National Forest. "We advised
cadets before they came to start a
serious preconditioning program of
running and pushups because they
have to be able to do 25 pushups and
run one mile without stopping when
they get here."

staff meeting as Montana Wing's commander recently. This session was for
planning development of 1991 goals

cadet orientation flight programs while
there. He was also instrumental in
development of a standardized wing
check pilot program for Arizona Wing.
In 1985, he was appointed inspector
general and chief check pilot for Rocky
Mountain Region. As chief check pilot, he worked to improve proficiency
and skills of all pilots with the inception of a check pilot proficiency program. tlis involvement in accident
and problem inv(,stigations in Rocky

improved safety recommendations.
According to Capt. C. R. Hunt, Montana Wing public affairs officer, cadet
programs have always been of special
interest to Colonel Scott. Through hi s
efforts, an operations manual for Rocky
Mountain Region's Cadet Competition has been published. He served as
Rocky Mountain Region commander's
representative at Civil Air Patrol's
National Cadet Competition for three
He has also spent more than 30
days a year attending search and rescue
activities, many of which were in Montana. This has, according to Captain
Hunt, enabled him to become aware of
Montana Wing's uniqueness and will
help him produce outstanding results
as wing commander.
Colonel Scott is also a professional
trauma transport pilot.

Training sharpens skills
RICHMOND, Va. -- Eleven Civil Air Patrol aircraft and
74 volunteers from throughout Virginia Wing converged
on Chesterfield County Airport recently for an extended
day of search and rescue training.
The 17-hour exercise hegan at 7 a.m., with aircraft
departing home airfields and conducting search operations while enroute to mission base.
Training scenarios, according to ttanover Composite
Squadron Public Affairs Officer, Maj. Mick Bennett, called
for participants to search for three downed aircraft.
The purpose, according to Major Bennett, was not a
staged contest to "find." It was a drill to sharpen basic
knowledge and skills of aircrews and ground teams in
electronic and visual search techniques.
Aircrews logged 34 flights during the exercise, flying a
total of 42 hours over the 25,000 square mile search area.

Members set records
GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Seven Arizona Wing members
attended the 1990 Southwest Region Staff College recently at Barksdale AFB, La. While there the group set
three records for both Arizona Wing and the college.
These five officers from Goodyear Composite Squadron
gave the unit the largest unit representation at Southwest
Region Staff College. They were; Capt. Lynn Forsythe,
Capt. Harvey Miller, 1st Lt. Paulette Miller, 1st Lt. Nena
Wiley and 2nd Lt. Leo Shelerud.
Under Lt. Col. Joe Gold's direction, Southwest Region
StaffCollege, according to Lieutenant Wiley, was a highly
motivating and successful learning/training experience
for all attendees.
Praising Southwest Region Staff College's effectiveness, Seminar Advisor, Maj. Bailey Duncan, said, "l thought
a year ago, after attending as a student, that the experience would never be repeated-or duplicated. It wasn't.
This year surpassed last year's! All ofu.~ who were part of
this experience were changed in the right direction."

Course teaches technique
GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Lt. Col. William Bell, South
Carolina Wing's director of Emergency Services, recently
conducted the second annual Scanner/Observer Course
for wing members.
This course is designed to teach pilots, observer trainees
and scanner trainees how to utilize different search techniques, how to read sectionals, and what to look for from
the air.
Attendees are instructed about how to use Emergency
Locater Transmitter direction finding equipment to locate
and find crash sites.
This type of training, said Colonel Bell, prepares aircrews for search and rescue exercises and potentially
actual missions. Instruction is also presented to attendees
on how scanners and observers can work. with pilots, as
well as what duties they can perform to assist pilots.

REALISTIC TARGET -- "Manfred Mannequin" is the nickname of this lifelike realistic-looking target.
Manfred was u sed as a target for a recent aerial search and rescue practice exercise for Texas Wing's
Group 4. Targets were apparently so realistic that concerned passers-by stopped to investigate.
