Airlift- A Chronic Problem

by Brig. Gen. F. Ward Reilly

I)v Brig. Gcn. Richard N. Ellis
Last November when 1 became National
Commander, the chronic problem of airlift
support for CAP activities was already known
,to me. This morning marks my I lth month in
:that office and sometimes i believe the
icomplaints have increased daily.
~, 1 think it's time we put
our heads together and put a
stop to them.
ALL of us in Civil Air
!Patrol have got to face facts
on this subject. We've got to
:make certain that
everyone-from the oldest
senior to the newest
cadet-kn6ws and appreciates these facts. It's
equally important that parents of our cadets
have a full understanding. If they don't, they
can be embarrassed by writing letters to
congressmen denouncing the Air Force and
then learn that their complaints were
I can assure you that very few of the letters
of complaint received were based on fact. It has
now reached the point where gross
misunderstandings; garbled words;
misconceptions and erroneous information have
reached embarrassing proportions.
I find it especially disturbing when the Air
Force-as frequently happens-is not only
criticized, but sometimes outright maligned. In
my opinion-and I'll tell you why in a
moment-the Air Force has done a creditable
job in providing airlift for a multitude of CAP
Let me make it clear that l am not here to
defent the Air Force position in this defense is needed! USAF support
has been 'nothing short of
remarkable-especially in these days of
critically reduced flying hours, aircraft
shortages, global commitments, a shooting war
in Southeast Asia, and the present period of
But even these, and other roadblocks, did
not stop the Air Force from continuing its
massive airlift for CAP's Summer Programs.
In a three-month period just ended, USAF
flew 4.5 million passenger miles. They were in
the air 2,500 hours to support CAP and you
can double these hours for ground time. This
included transportation, billeting, scheduling,
maintenance, and everything else needed to get
them there and back safely.
And how about the lACE of 19707 It was
CAP's biggest to-date. We hear much about this
wonderful youth motivation program which
sent American youngsters to 27 countries,
while 204 foreign cadets came to this nation.
What we don't hear is that the Air Force
made it possible. I don't say "assists," or
"helps," or "supports,"-I say USAF makes it

This year alone, USAF carved 150 thousand
dollars out of its already lean and plucked
budget to make CAP's hopes for its biggest
1ACE in history become a reality. While none
of the complaints were related to 1ACE, it
seems appropriate to remind ourselves of the
total airlift support picture...and certainly the
giant USAF role in that worthwhile program
should be made a matter of public record.
Let me return to the hardnosed facts which !
mentioned earlier. This is the straight scoop
which all CAP members must know. The
regulation governing airlift support to Civil Air
Patrol is AF Reg 76-6. This is the law; this is
the bible; but not only for CAP, but for all
agencies who look to USAF for such assistance.
In essence, CAP airlift may be PERMITTED. It
cannot be obligated! It has never been
obligatory for USAF to airlift Civil Air Patrol
This means that CAP travel must be on a
space available basis. The truth is that USAF
cannot-by law-schedule an aircraft to
transport a group of cadets to a special activity,
or a panel of senior members to a seminar-or
whatever! The term "space available" should be
self-explanatory, but seems to require frequent
discussion. Let me give it to you in a nut shell!
If an Air Force aircraft is going from point "A"
to point "B" and there is room aboard, it is
known as space available. If a CAP member is
also at point "A", if he has official orders
stating he is on CAP business which requires his
presence at point "B"-or in the area-then he
may fly on that aircraft.
That's the story. These are the facts. There
are a few exceptions but generally speaking, all
CAP airlift, except lACE operations mentioned
earlier, must be in the space available category.
It's not new. The regulation has been in effect
for many years.
Some may wonder-in the light of these
restrictions-how on earth was our substantial
airlift over the years made possible.

Salute: Exchange of greetings with expression of
courtesy and respect between men of goodwill, shrouded
in the mysteries of the Age of Chivalry, preserved through
the years for freemen but denied to slaves and knaves, is a
heritage of which we can be justly proud and entrusted
with its preservation.
Therefore, as I reach the end of my tour of
active duty in this great Organization I have been
privileged to serve, I salute with pride the
courageous men and women of Civil Air Patrol and
the United States Air Force.
To o o f t e n w e a r e a p t t o r e - c o u n t o u r
contributions over the ),ears, in terms of time,
effort, and resources, overlooking our greatest
reward in the satisfaction of contributing to the
welfare of our fellowman and our Great Country to which we all
owe so much, confirming the saying: "We enjoy life by the help and
society of others."
You are aware of the principles for which 1 stand, expressed in
this column during the terms of office I have been privileged to serve
as your chairman. I am gfatefnl for your commendations and the
silence of the dissenters. We are bound by the fundamental
principles of Duty, Honor, Country, and nothing in our volunteer
status relieves us of these sacred obligations. Our past is a matter of
record, both commendable and regrettable. The future depends
upon the character of our membership and leadership. Civil Air
Patrol must subscribe to goals that will result in a prestigious
Organization, otherwise we will face a grim future.
It is essential that we not tolerate conflict of personalities and
that there be neither fear nor favor in our ranks. Mission
accomplishment is our purpose and our goal. To this end we must all
pledge our dedicated effort.
Our new organizational structure, criteria for membership and
officer grade has been designed to accommodate thos¢ now in the
Organization and to require higher standards for those seeking
membership in the future. This is a long range upgrading plan to
reach the first plateau some years down the road, and then to be
elevated to acceptable standards of the times and Services.
The dedicated members of Civil Air Patrol will support the
program, the dissenters may become a part of our attrition. So long
as we base our Organization on standards of quality we will have no
difficulty in attracting those of quality for membership. Fads and
fancies, hairy or shaggy, will come and go and only the fundamental
principles to which we have dedicated our services will endure.
With these thoughts, I wish you one and all Godspeed for a great
future for Civil Air Patrol and may your rewards be great.

Air Force Personnel-and many others in Air
Reserve Components-made it possible by a
maximum effort. Not just the commanders, or
the pilots, co-pilots, navigators, crew chiefs,
aircraft engineers who were directly concerned,
it took an extra effort on the part of operations
clerks, mechanics, Ioadmasters, drivers,
communications, billeting non-coms, food
service airmen. All these-and more-at bases
across the country have had a part in giving full
support to Civil Air Patrol.
They have earned a pat-on-the-back from
all-but instead, they're getting criticized from
a few.
Let's straighten those few out by giving
them the facts.

PHOENIX--A wisp of smoke

Gotcher sent his first plane

Tyler made an east to west

he said, "and were ready for us

A campfire-like puff of
smoke rose into the hazy air on

view at the same time.
"He started waving to us. It

. lodified Cadet Program

Pot Pourri
by 1st LI. John D. .llc)lalton
MAXWELL AFB, Ala.--The National Executive Committee has
approved a five-year moratorium on major structural and conceptual
changes to the modified cadet program. We are thankful and it looks
like we are going to need every minute of it to get people properly
briefed and indoctrinated.
We have proof that CAP people have more imagination and
ingenuity than any other group in the country. All one has to do is
monitor the achievement contracts and achievement packet orders
coming to National Headquarters.
We are inclined to believe that people do not read the published
guidance--rather we know it. How can they go so far wrong in so
many ways?
You cannot bulk order for cadets--one achievement packet per
order, with the mailing label made out to the cadet's address.
You cannot mimeograph contract forms and send them in for
achievement credit. To enter the modified program, an achievement
packet must be ordered.
You cannot finagle so that cadets can get credit for achievements
under the old program without taking the aerospace education test.
Quit trying to find shortcuts and help us maintain standards!
We are going to be hardnosed and send orders and contracts back
to you if they are not right.

Flying Different
In Mountains
Yo u r fi r s t e x p e r i e n c e o f fl y i n g o v e r m o u n t a i n o u s t e r r a i n ,
particularly if most of your flight time has been over the fiatlands of
the Midwest, could be a never-to-be forgotten nightmare if proper
planning is not done and if you are not aware of the potential
hazards awaiting. Those familiar section lines are not present in the
mountains; those fiat, level fields for forced landings are practically
non.existent; abrupt changes in wind direction and velocity occur;
severe updrafts and downdrafts are common, particularly near or
above abrupt changes of terrain such as cliffs or rugged areas; even
the clouds look different and can build up with startling rapidity.
Mountain flying need not be hazardous if you follow the
recommendations below.
1. File a flight plan. Plan your route to avoid topography which
would prevent a safe forced landing. The route should be over
populated areas and well-known mountain passes. Sufficient altitude
should be maintained to permit gliding to a safe landing in the event
of engine failure.
2. Don't fly a light aircraft when the winds aloft, at your
proposed altitude, exceed 35 miles per hour. Expect the winds to be
of much greater velocity over mountain passes than reported a few
miles from them. Approach mountain passes with as much altitude
as possible. Downdrafts of from 1500 to 2000 feet per minute are
not uncommon on the leeward side.
3. Don't fly near or above abrupt changes in terrain. Severe
turbulence can be expected, especially in high wind conditions.
4. Some canyons run into a dead-end. Don't fly so far up a
canyon that you get trapped. ALWAYS BE ABLE TO MAKE A
5. Plan your trip for the early morning hours. As a rule, the air
starts to get bad at about 10 a.m., and grows steadily worse until
around 4 p.m., then gradually improves until dark. Mountain flying
at night in a single engine light aircraft is asking for trouble.
6. When landing at a high altitude field, the same indicated
airspeed should be used as at low elevation fields. REMEMBER: that
due to the less dense air at altitude, this same indicated airspeed
actually results in a higher true airspeed, a faster landing speed, and
more important, a longer landing distance. During gusty wind
conditions Which often prevail at high altitude fields, a power
approach and power landing is recommended. Additionally, due to
the faster groundspeed, your takeoff distance will increase
considerably over that required at low altitudes.
