Utah Recruits
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah--Members of the newly created Utah
Aeronautics Commission hold dual
membership thanks to the foresightedness of one of the members
and a veteran Wing commander.
The 1965 state legislature divorced aeronautics from highways
and created the new and independent state aeronautics commission.
The commission is composed of
business and professional leaders;
all of them experienced pilots;
four of them aircraft owners.
The commissioners and the director are well informed of Civil
Air Patrol in modern aviation and
acting upon the suggestion of Commissioner Dr. Donald K. Bailey,
M.D., voted unanimously to express
its support and appreciation of
CAP by joining the organization
lind urging others to do likewise.
Colonel Joe Bergin, CAP, Utah
Wing commander, personally reeruited the commission members

VERNON ESTES, founder and

not a single serious accident has

Governor's Girls
DURING THE recent Tuberculosis Seal drive, in which Civil Air Patrol was urged to assist local
units, Maj. Ralph Snyder, CAP, Oklahoma City Composite Squadron commander, received an unexpected surprise. Miss Alice h Porter, left, state TB chairman, and Ann, second left, Gall, second right, and Pat Bellman, all daughters of Governor and Mrs. Henry Bellman, presented the
captain with TB seals autographed by Astronaut Scott Carpenter. Seals were distributed throughout the state by wing pilots.

Following Daughter
CHAPLAIN (Capt.) Wayne O. Ursenbach, chaplain for the Murray Flying Angels Squadron, Utah Wing, is following in his
daughter's footsteps. Shortly after he pinned solo wings on his
daughter, Cadet Sylvia Ursenbach, the chaplain joined the
"solo club" by soloing. The cadet earned her wings through the
1965 Naylor Flight Scholarship. She is a freshman at Brigham
Young University. (Photo courtesy Murray Angels squadron)

award for three consecutive
years. She placed third nationally in 1964 and is second

Top Suggestion
A SUGGESTION for the speeding-up of CAP reimbursement
claims while participating in official Air Force missions is explained by TSgt. Giles Appling, USAF, Georga Wing liaison office NCO, to Col. Ted Limmer, CAP, wing commander. According to the sergeant, now when a claim is received, the wing
commander certifies that the individual participated and reimbursement is expedited. The suggestion has been adopted

Pool Ideas
REPRESENTATIVES from Fremont Composite Squadron and
Lima Composite Squadron, both
of the Ohio Wing, meet to pool
their ideas for an extensive
1966 membership drive. The
"recruiting" officers of the two
squadrons were accompanied
to the meeting by their cadet
offspring who provided the
cadet point of view for the
meeting. From left are we

Members of the unit are in the
process of distributing a pocketsize manual, prepared by the
Flight Safety Department at National Aviation Underwriters.
The booklet "Pilot's Manual of
Flight Operations" contains the 12
golden rules for aircraft accident
prevention. The rules were developed by the NAU through
analysis, by IBM machines, of 10,000 actual aircraft accidents.
Nearly 00 percent of all accidents, the manual states, are the

machines indicated that strict adherence to "the Safe Pilot's 12
Golden Rules" would eliminate
about 93 percent of these pilot
error accidents.
Valley Forge Group circulated
about 700 copies of the manuals
among general aviation enthusiasts

in the Group 90 area. This is a
two-county area in eastern Pennsylvania.
Resides the 12 rules, which include check-out, aircraft pre-flight,
vigilance, controls and systems,
weather, speed and stall control,
navigation, take-off and landing
area, take-off and landing limits,
wind, physical condition and starting engine, the manual also has
human, weather and aircraft checklists.

AF Academy Unit Conducts Observer Program

AFTER A practice mission during the Observer Training Pro" gram, Capt. E. R. Manfrin, CAP, information officer, and Lt.
Ken Boley, supply officer, recheck the map for landmarks used
in spotting "downed" aircraft. The Air Force Academy Composite Squadron, Colorado Wing, conducts a special observer
- "program to supply skilled observers in time of official search
missions. (All photos by Capt. Manfrin)

LT. DAVE Taylor, squadron executive officer, gives a pro-flight briefing to Clarence Brandhorst,
a prospective senior member, and SM Robert Williamson. The AF Academy squadron provides
observer training to all eligible senior members in the unit.

Rough Terrain
OBSERVERS in Colorado Wing have a local terrain problem
when looking for downed aircraft. This photo, taken from 9,000
feet, shows the dense wooded area around the Black Forest
community, located seven miles from the Academy site.

Final Reward

ONE OF the important phases of the Observer
Training Program is the MITAC gyroscope instruction. Lt. Taylor, left, SM Bob Brown and
SM John Canny, right, discuss the scope which
was developed by Massachusetts Institute of
Technology to illustrate the practical concepts
of gyroscope instruments.

THE MANY hours of work and study come to a
successful end for SM Bobbin Robinson, right,
as he receives his wings from Maj. James Cooksee, CAP, squadron commander. For SM Robinson the training ends and big job of search and
rescue begins.
