Delegates Note
CAP Needs Help
MAXWELL AFB, Ala.-There is a "desperate need" for
formal, professional training in Civil Ak Patrol's three
primary roles-search and rescue, civil defense, and disaster
relief-CAP National Executive Committee members were
told at their July meeting here.
Members of CAP's
Emergency Services Committee,
representing all eight wings,
agreed that there is such need,
brought about by CAP's
expanding role in these fields
Directorate of Operations
staff members at National
Headquarters outlined for the
NEC the need for the training
and tentative plans to establish
three courses, each lasting five
days, covering these fields. The
NEC approved the plans.
The proposed schools would
be held in each of CAP's eight
regions at U.S. Air Force
installations, centrally located so
that a maximum number of
eligible CAP members could
attend. Members could attend
any one or all of the cohrses,
In preliminary planning:
--The American National Red
Cross has agreed to provide a
40-hour Red Cross Disaster
Control Course for CAP senior
members. Those completing the
course would be certified by the
Red Cross as disaster control
team members.
--The Civil Defense Staff
College at Battle Creek, Mich.,
has agreed to develop a
combination CD Management
Course, now available to a
limited number of CAP members
at the college, plus an Aerial
Radiological Monitoring Course.
This course would be taught by
members of the Office of Civil
Defense region staff and
me'mbers of the state's
University extension staff.
--The Air Force's Aerospace
Rescue and Recovery Service has
agreed to assemble a SAR course
for Civil Air Patrol members.
This would be a condensation of
the longer course now presented
at the Coast Guard's National

SAR School at Governor's
Island, N.Y.
Qualified experts from these
three agencies would be available
to develop a curriculum and
provide instruction in their
individual specialized areas at
each of the regional schools. Air
Force ReserVe officers also
would be rec~ited to develop,
coordinate, and assist in
instructing the courses.
No final plans have been
made toward establishing the
schools. The dates, locations,
size of classes, etc., depends

America Can Lead Way
To United Family Life
MAXWELL AFB, Ala.-Philip Geary known as the "Adyenturer
with a Message" had a message of congratulations for Civil Ak Patrol
(CAP) in his address July 15 before nearly 200 members enrolled in
the CAP National Staff College here.
He said CAP leaders working
with American youth have a
wonderful p hilosophy--"the
upward look. With the upward
look youth will not stumble, but
will have a gradual climb."
Geary, director of the air
world education program for
Trans World Airlines--a
communications project
embracing 26 overseas countries
and America--says his number
one question, What do others
think of America? brings many
interesting comments. A Ugandi
educator answered--"Wben the
American people put their hearts
and minds into a project they
accomplish it better than any
other country."
The speaker commented that

farmer by 700 per cent. Turning

Street USA the financial hub of
the world. Americans are now
being referred to as a society of
It's quite possible, he
believes, that with the aid of two
machines--flying and
planet--that America can
contribute to resolving our
greatest problem: the need for a
united human family. And this
means all men, all women, all
children and all countries.
To t a l i s o l a t i o n o f h u m a n
beings results in the warped idea
of life--the idea that "I am the
greatest." But the first man to
cut down a log and put it over
the stream enabling humans to
travel and meet others, was the
first step in putting the human
family together.
Recounting his experience of
being served a cup of lukewarm
tea and entertained with music
by a blind boy of a nearly
inaccessible desert tribe, he
noted that hospitality is a great
bUtnafi d~rlominator.

Travel is another
denominator and Geary said,
"we now have an era of
democratic travel as opposed to
the time when only the rich
could afford it. Last year four
million Americans traveled
internationally and it's
anticipated there will be 10
million in 1975."
Having observed two
astronauts, an American and
Russian together in Washington,
he noted that in attempting to
find a project for these two great
countries to accomplish
together, it could well be that an
American and a Russian will go
together in a planet machine. It
would do more to bring men
together than years of political
He told of his Bombay friend,
who thinking to quiet his restless
seven-year-old, gave him a cut-up
map to assemble, puzzle fashion.
The boy finished in 6% minutes.
Astounded, the father asked
how he did it so fast. Tl~e little
boy replied, "There was a man
on the back of it and I just put
the man together."
Traveler Geary says, "That's
it--put the man together and the
world will take care of itself."

board chairman, Brig. Gen. Lyle
W. C a s t l e , n a t i o n a l l e g a l o f fi c e r
and Col, Paul W. Turner (now an
honorary CAP brigadier general
and chairman emeritus), national
finance officer and General Ellis.
All were impressed with
CAP's performance in the air
and on the ground. CAP's strong
role in search and rescue
operations--widely acclaimed
throughout the state--received
special attention from Generals
Ellis and Reilly.

That's understandable.
A Critical Need
Civil Air Patrol has been
flying its humanitarian missions
throughout Alaska since 1946. It
was rushed into being to fill a
critical need generated by the
commercial flying boom which
followed World War If.
That war ended 25 years ago
this month. Since then, CAP
personnel have seen their state
grow more than all the previous
y e a r s i n A l a s k a n h i s t o r y.
They've had a front-row seat on
this panorama of progress but
never as spectators. They have
been part of it...a very
important part. The role of
aviation in the development of
Alaska is similar to the role
played" by the railroads in the
lower 48 states. In other words,
it was the airplane that enabled

people to reach into every
corner of Alaska.
As flying operations soared,
CAP kept pace with a variety of
aircraft equipped with wheels,
floats, skis which enabled its
bush pilots to go where needed.
N a t u r a l l y, C A P ' s e m e r g e n c y
services were concerned in flying
operations, but during major
disasters such as earthquakes or
floods CAP responded with
nearly a thousand trained
volunteers who filled a variety of
tough jobs.

Don't Let Under Wing Airspace
Be The Last Place You Look
Midair collisions near airpol:ts usually occur in
good weather and at relatively low speeds.
Inability to see or be seen may be attributed to
lack of awareness of the segment of airspace
blocked out by the wing.
Low-wing aircraft have excellent visibility
forward, overhead and to the rear. But the low
wing covers a specific area below the cabin
within which other aircraft may be hidden. Their
presence may be unknown unless the pilot of the
upper plane observes them entering the blocked
out airspace and realizes that they have not
emerged. Great care must be taken to be alert for
such aircraft movements~ especially during the
landing phase when numerous pre-landing
procedures tend to draw the pilot's attention
inside the cockpit.
Pilots of low-wing aircraft should be
particularly on- the lookout for high-wing aircraft
below them, since this situation provides a
potentially mutual blind area of rather large
dimensions, depending on the nearness of the
aircraft and the wing configuration.
When the low wing is lowered in a turn, the
pilot has an excellent opportunity to examine
the airspace below him in the direction of the
turn. However, he must remember that the
silhouette, of an aircraft below the horizon is
difficult to spot against many types of landscape,
especially'~lien moving at low speed.

In level flight the low wing hides a pyramid
of airspace directly below and to the rear
of the pilot. Aircraft so hidden present a
midair collision hazard, especially in busy
airport traffic areas.

When the low-wing aircraft is turning within
an airport pattern, such as a turn onto final
approach, the area outside the turn will be
effectively hidden from the pilot. He must take
great care, therefore, to examine this area before
he begins his turn, looking for other aircraft on
straight-in final approach, or even turning on
final from an opposing direction. Not all pilots,
by any means, can be counted on to observe the
standard or field indicated pattern turns. This is
especially true at uncontrolled airports with
considerable itinerant traffic.--FAA Aviation

Fuel Mixing A 'No-No'
Each day more and more
aircraft fueling facilities offer
multiple types of aviation fuel.
As the number providing both
jet fuel and aviation gasoline
grows, the chance of
piston-powered aircraft being
fueled accidently with jet fuel
grows proportionately,
Since "Murphy's Law" (If
anything can go wrong, it will) is
as universally applicable as
Newton's Laws, it was
practically inevitable that
someone someday would put the
wrong fuel in an airplane,
Several instances of this have

attempted to land on a highway
near Atlanta. The only way to
prevent such occurrences is for
all owners, operators, and fuel
servicing personnel to be aware
of the
possibility a n d t o
maintain an active vigilance
against it.
Operating reciprocating
engines on jet fuel can cause
extensive cylinder assembly
damage but if the engine is not
actually run, little or no damage
will occur. In the latter case, the
fuel tanks, lines, and system
should be drained completely,
the tanks refilled with proper
fuel, and the engine, run for
approximately five minutes.
If the engines were operated
on jet fuel, investigate the
abnormal engine operating
conditions and accomplish the

Regulations are in effect that
should help prevent fuel mixing.
FAR Part 23, Section 23.1557
(c)(1) requires that aircraft fuel
filler openings be marked to
show the word "FUEL" plus the
minimum fuel grade for the
engine. Regulations also require
that these markings be kept
fresh and clean so owners should
be sure that they are washed
frequently and repainted when
It is equally important that
tank vehicles be marked
conspicuously to show the type
of fuel carried. The FAA also
recommends that the hose lines
be marked next to the nozzle
and every six feet. No amount of
marking can replace an alert
operator, however.
The obvious goal is to prevent
mixing jet fuel with gasoline in
the first place. A conscious
effort on the part of all
concerned is the only way the
goal will be realized. The extra
care and time is a cheap price to
pay when the alternative may be

the basis for justification of the law creating Civil

in this role is the acceptance and respect we
receive from the Air Force.
Do not be consoled by
our wartime
non-combatant status. In
monitoring, damage assessment, re-establishing
air transportation and other committed missions,
we will face the full fury of a nuclear conflict. As
a supporting element of the Air Force, we must
have a responsible, disciplined force, physically,
mentally and operationally capable of the task.

The Department of the Air Force is
administered by a civilian Secretary of the
Air Force appointed by the President.

It is imperative that we take appropriate
action to upgrade our active duty personnel and
