Adirondack Mountain Group are more knowledgeable on the operation
of Air ForCe rescue and recovery operations, thanks to personnel of
Detachment 18, 48th Aerospace Rescue and Recovery Service at
Plattsburgh AFB.
The cadets were given a firsthand look at the _operation of the unit
as they participated in a helicopter training mission. In addition to
taking a ride in the helicopter, they observed a helicopter crew
practice rescue pickup techniques, using the hoist in the craft.
Air Force Capt. Roy Allen and 1st Lt. Robert Engelbrecht of the
detachment briefed the cadets during their visit.

Unity--A Basis Overlooked ?
by Chaplain (Maj.) Earle A. Newman, CAP
Attached to Alabam9 Wing
In the countless times we Americans have stood
to attention, hand over heart, proclaiming
allegiance to the United States ... one nation...undivided...we have borne witness to a thread of unity drawing together in fabric patterns of great
diversity. We have been young and old, rich and
poor, urban and rural, educated and not, healthy
and sick, cleanshaven and bearded, athletes and
spectators, military and civilian, northern and
southern, native-born and foreign-born, Christian
and Jew. The listing of our differences is not exhaustive but all of these and more have given
testimony to that which unites. Yet, for lack of
recognition of that which unifies, being different
often has been a stumbling block.
American history, characterized by so much
greatness, is replete also with accounts of those
who have triumphed at the cost of unity - with
sacrifice of family and friends, of country even,
for the sake of being different, because one's self
or one's ideal was thought of as.being larger than
the whole; but the opposite was more true: such
achievements are measured frequently by the
emptiness in the center of a doughnut, a hole surrounded by substance.
When Paul of Tarsus wrote to a peope who had
been unified by a common belief and way of life, he

voiced his thoughts with urgent passion: "I plead
with you to live a life worthy of the calling you
have received, with perfect humility, meekness,
and patience, bearing with one another lovingly.
Make every effort to preserve the unity which has
the Spirit as its origin and peace as its binding
We in Civil Air Patrol have pledged ourselves
solemnly to unify the efforts of senior and cadet
members as an auxiliary to the United States Air
Force so that our country and her people might be
well-served by the freewill donation of our time
and skills. But the unity or unifying principle or
cause is derived from the nation itself, and not
from the individual members. There could have
been no more diverse group than the representatives to the Continental Congress meeting in
Philadelphia 200 years ago. The will to be free had
gathered them and they fought, sometimes
literally, among themselves and with their
Declaration for freedom, making 85 changes and
deleting more than 400 words of the original text
drafted by Thomas Jefferson. Finally, however,
with unanimity of purpose, they committed
themselves by solemn pledge and signature. The
many delegates were very diverse; they could
have contributed only division if they had had
nothing to draw them together. Thus, the thread of
unity had to come from some higher, objective

Cadets from Massachusetts' Tri-County Comp. Sq., were briefed by
Sudbury police prior to reporting for traffic parking and crowd control
at 3 a.m. on the day of the big event.
In the American Revolution in 1775, word of British approach didn't
arrive until 4:30 a.m., however in 1975 people came from all parts of
the nation much earlier than that. The cadets, who had slept in
Sudbury near an old militia training field were ready for them.
Hundreds of people flocked to Sudbury center where Colonial figures
on foot, on horses or buckboard were all mustering. CAP cadets kept
the crowds out of the streets and the parade route open.
Although the crowd dispersed at 5 a.m. when the Minutemen
marched off to Concord, cars kept arriving until 8 a.m.

From The Westbergs

To A I I O u r F r i e n d s I n C A P
Soon, Jeanne and I will be heading for
California and our new beginning as
private citizens.We are writing this letter
jointly to let all of you know how much
your friendship has meant and means to
us both. However, if we tried to name
eaeh individual friend, we would soon run
out of available space by listing all 62,000
members of Civil Air Patrol! Instead we
want to share some of the meanings and
memories we have drawn from our three
years' close association with you.

and from the sustaining encouragement
of our associates.
As for myself, I treasure the privilege I
have had to see my eountry and to gain a
true appreciation of the American citizen.
1 have visited nearly all fifty states,
Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.
As you know, Jenne was with me °nmany

Jeanne credits CAP with showing her
new horizons and challenging her to
greater personal growth. She says you
made her try to do things she never
dreamed she would have the ability to do.
Whether meeting for the first time the
silent blue beauty of the glider's sky or
the reality of rapelling down a mountainside or the many other firsts for her. in
the process her self-confidence grew.
Now she says, I can try, I can learn, I can
do! Perhaps her experience has been
shared by thousands of other members
when they were new to CAP. This freeing
of the human spirit comes from the opportunity to work, which CAP gives us,

of these official CAP trips. We saw you
working in your home communities: big
cities, small towns and several places
Rand McNally doesn't even know about!
You showed us hospitality, generosity of
spiFit, pride, and responsible citizenship.
With each visit I learned yet another way
that each citizen can contribute to the
benefit and strength of our country. I consider my time as National Commander
a period of personal transition from my
prior experience in military service to
my duties as a private citizen of the
United States. By your example you have
set very high goals for me to pursue.
For three years now I have marvelled
at the missions you accomplish in search
and rescue; civil disaster assistance;
aerospace education; and youth
motivation. Granted there were differing
opinions from time to time on what would
be the best way to get the job done! But
there was never any question that CAP
would succeed. Out of the arguments, or
should I say discussions, came creativity
and ingenuity to meet each challenge.
You are a noisy bunch, but it's a gqod
noise so keep it up!

Jeanne says don't forget the cadets.
How could I? While you young men and
women have been charming Mrs.
Westberg with your winning ways, you
have been setting a fast paee for me as
well as for your senior member advisors.
We have great confidence in you. With
your energy, enthusiasm and willingness
to shoulder ever increasing responsibility
you are well prepared for the future, I
draw a special pleasure from my observations of CAP members of all ages working well together. The senior membership
contributes significantly to the success of
the cadet program.
Jeanne and I will continue our interest
in what you are doing. Civil Air Patrol
will always be close to our hearts.
We are proud to know you.
With warmest regards,

Chairman's Comments

A Problem...and Maybe An Answer
by Brig. Gen. William M. Patterson, CAP
National Board Chairman

As many of you already know, we
at the National level have been
searching for many months for
answers to the problem of cadet
recruitment and retention. It has
many facets, is most complex and all
encompassing. And, because of its
very nature it has many origins and
an equal number of possible
After considerable soul searching,
much discussion and many widely
divergent opinions as to cause and
remedy, it was decided to turn the
basic problem
over to a couple of
experts, Colonel
Bill Ramsey and
M r. J a c k S o r e n son. Both of these
gentlemen bring a
wealth of talent
and experience to
bear on the problem. Additionally, they knew where to go to
get the CAP expertise that would be
needed if the problems were to be
On June 7 the National Executive
Committee met at Maxwell and good
things started to happen. The NEC
was given a briefing by Colonel
Ramsey on the project. To say that it
was excitiagand innovative would be
to understate the degree of
enthusiasm and respect manifested
by all. Let me tell you about some of
the highlights of this report. For purposes of identification it shall be called the Cadet Program Development
The Plan was designed to meet six
basic needs:
A . Competent motivated senior
members to organize and operate
cadet units.
B . A system of continuous recruiting
of new units.
C . Quick access to supplies
(uniforms, insignia, training
packets, etc.).
D. Adequate financing for all units.
E. An activity-oriented cadet
program (primarily correlated to
the CAP mission).
F. A simplified system of communication between Headquarters
and the cadet units.
In order to meet the above needs or
objectives four basic projects needed
development and implementation
with the first two being assigned to
committees consisting of
knowledgeable and highly experienced CAP officers from the field:
I . Develop a system of organizing
new CAP cadet units, including

recruiting the senior members and
cadets necessary to bring it to life.
2. Develop a system of training
senior members on how to operate
a cadet s quadron and how to implement the cadet program.
3. Employ salaried CAP unit
organizers at Region level to implement Projects I and 2.
4. Review the existing cadet program
and, to the extent possible, make it
match more closely the expectations and needs of the young people joining the CAP organization
With reference to full time unit
organizers, two corporate employees
have been hired and will begin work
on July I, 1975. They will report to me
through Colonel Ramsey, the project
officer and come under the administrative control of the Executive
Director, Gordon Weir. They will live
and work in the Great Lakes and
North Central test regions. These two
men, David Lombardo in GLR and
Brian Duehring in NCR, have excellent backgrounds, are both rated
pilots, have commanded CAP units
and bring many years of CAP experience to these jobs.
Each region and each wing will also
have a designated staff member, with
no other duties, as Unit Organization
a n d D e v e l o p m e n t O f fi c e r. T h i s
person shall be responsible for working with the full time Director of
Organization and Development to
carry out the Unit Development
Plans for his Region/Wing. In wings
that have groups, a Group Organization and Development Officer will
also be appointed.
The region Directory of Organization and Development will meet with
the region and wing O&D Officers and
each wing commander in his assigned
region to determine the communities
within the wing best suited for a
cadet squadron. Factors to be considered will be population, availability of an active airport, availability of
sponsorship, mission coverage, etc.

The OD Directors will be
assisted in all of the above by the
wing O&D staff officers, but it will
be his responsibility to get the job

The O&D people will be supported

1. We should build relevant flyingrelated activities and emergency

Phase II as requirements to meet
the interest needs expressed by our
dropouts. This also meets CAP's
needs since they relate directly to
our mission.
2 . We should structure each phase so
that the total requirements are
made up of certain basic mission
related achievements plus some
elective achievements over a wide
base of interest areas, giving
appropriate credit for previously
demonstrated skills.

by Lt. Col. Morton H. Bryant, CAP
Squadron Commander
The composite nature of Birmingham Sq. 34 provides an atmosphere in which the senior
and cadet components compliment each other. There is one
primary reason that the cadet
program earned its distinction of
performance in 1974. There was
a nucleus of five senior members
who provided the leadership,
based on their genuine interest
in the cadets as a unit and as individuals.
The deputy commander for
cadets, CAP Capt. Jack Wilks,
"swallowed the manual" when
be joined the program early in
the year. Each directive and activity was judiciously executed
according to CAP procedures.
He assembled a staff which
shared this approach.
The cadets were permitted
and encouraged to do as many
things as they could for
themselves. An example is that
permission was received according to CAPR for the cadets
to maintain their own financial
program and more than once
offered to "lend" funds to the
general squadron treasury. This
was a great morale builder, but

member's part went into it. The
key words are "motivation,"
"teamwork," and"pride."
Cadets and seniors were
motivated by having a lot of
enthusiasm for what they are doing in Civil Air Patrol. Motivation speeches instilled selfconfidence and a full agenda of
activities brought on the
greatest teamwork in the state
which created such pride as you
haven't seen before. By establishing goals in the areas of
recruiting, retention and cadet
contract completion, our unit
doubled its membership over the
past year and retained 80 per

The senior members have
done their part in making us
what we are today too. We have
the greatest flying program in
the state. Our pilots take turns
giving orientation rides on Sun-

day afternoons, weather permitting, to familiarize the cadets
with the principles of flight.
They have given quite extensive ground school to the cadets
to qualify them as rated
observers. We have a practice

simulated missions which has
made our pilots the best search
pilots in the state. We coordinate
with the Coast Guard on practice
missions, using minimum
altitude flying for boats in distress, as our objective. A boat
is placed on a lake, whereabouts
known only to the Coast Guard
and our planes are sent out to
find it. When this is accomplished we fly over the Coast Guard
boat and lead them to the overturned boat for rescue purposes
or whatever is necessary.
This is strictly a senior activity. The Coast Guard requires
each participant to be at least 21
years old. We are lucky enough
to have a fish and game ranger

tremendously. He" has given

Besides meeting our commitment of 100 per cent orientation
flights, we also flew 300 hours of
student instruction provided by
four flight instructors: A1
Freedy, Stan Tonkin, Robert
Trantham, and Art Arnett.

Athletics is high on our list of
activities. Teamwork is the'
name of the game. We challenge
other squadrons to baseball,
volleyball, you name it. We have
some pretty tough teams from
other squadrons to compete with
but usually come out the victor.
Drill is another. By becoming
a team, we have established a
sense of pride in the person as
well as the squadron.
As a result of the importance
of leadership, and a strong training program, consisting of public
speaking, psychology of
leadership, maturity, and most
important, actual experience,
our squadron produced the

Three years ago, members of

for search and rescue, orienta-

Our orientation flights were
flown in many types of aircraft
so that the cadet could become
acquainted with the flight
characteristics of both low and
high wing craft, both tricycle
and conventional craft and also
sophisticated aircraft such as
retractables. The orientation
program was conducted once a
month throughout the year except in the summer when it was
conducted every other Sunday
In addition we have provided
our cadets with a certified
ground school program at the
local airport and have opened it
to seniors.
We feel that for CAP to be
accepted by general aviation and
also to attract general aviation
members into it, we should
Cooperate with other flying
organizations and assist in maintaining a good local airport
facility. Last summer eight
cadets from the squadron
painted the roof of a large
hangar so that the Chicago area
99's could airmark it. Several
seniors from the unit helped to
air mark the runway.
Also, the cadets have mowed
tiedown .areas, provided trash
pickup and, in general, helped to
improve the appearance of the
airport. This created good rapport with the airport operator
and other pilot owners.
We also emphasize leadership.
The real success for our
program lies in the fact that
cadets run it. They are ably
assisted by four former cadets

various speeds the aircraft will stall
with power off and flaps down, or
vice versa, or out of a turn, or out of a
glide, etc., etc. These stall speeds, of
course, vary one from the other.
Vno Maximum structural cruising
speed. This speed is the limit of the
green arc on the airspeed indicator
and is the speed in which the aircraft
can be flown safely in smooth air.

by CAP L.t. Col Richard Bifulco
N ER Director of Safety
If there is one thing that can drive
the average pilot up a wall, it is the
technical aspects of flying. Each year
we are hammered more and more
with all sorts of information; some of
which takes concerted effort to learn.
The primary purpose of this information is to make us more
knowledgeable; and consequently
safer pilots. Unfortunately, many
pilots take a glance at some of these
hieroglyphics, and decide that it is information they can get along without.
However, the accident statistics
prove differently, and only God
knows how many lives would have
been spared, if the pilot had been
more knowledgeable.
In bygone years, both flying and ins t r u c t i n g w e r e m u c h s i m p l e r,
because we were not regulated to the
extent we are now, but aviation has
grown a lot, and we must grow with
it, if we are to fly safely. This means
knowing as much as we can about the
realm in which we are flying, the
equipment we are flying, and our own
capability to handle both.
The following is an attempt to give
you the most simplistic, comprehensive understanding of the more often
used speed symbols. Through the
years I have refined them somewhat,
and I expect I may continue to do so,
as I plagiarize thoughts from books
and other airmen.

defined as the speed, at a given
weight (usually gross weight) at
which you can abruptly pull the
elevators full back and do no structural damage. In other words at or
below this speed, you cannot exceed
the limit load factor for the aircraft.
Let us say you were foolishly caught
in severe turbulance, in an aircraft
rated for the normal category limit
load of 3.8 Gs, and encountered a gust
that imposed a high load on the
wings; the wing would stall when the
load reached 3.8 Gs; and supposedly
no structural damage will be done. I
s a i d s u p p o s e d l y. T h e p o i n t t o

remember here is that the-speed Va
is for only one weight configuration;
gross weight. Lighter-than gross aircraft should be flown slightly slower
than Va, because they are subjected
to higher acceleration and displacement loads in turbulent air, than
heavier aircraft, and you want to
compensate for this by reducing

VxBest angle of climb speed. This
speed will give you the greatest gain
in altitude for a given horizontal distance. You would use this speed to
clear an obstacle, and once this is
safely done, go to Vy. The simplest
way to remember the difference
between Vx and Vy is to remember
that Vx has more angles than Vy.
Hence Vx - best angle of climb.
VaThis is the manuvering speed. It is
the speed thatis normally used to fly
in turbulent air. Technically, it can be



Flight at this airspeed in turbulent air
could result in structural failure.
Never exceed speed. This is the red
line speed on the airspeed indicator,
and any speed beyond this will
probably result in some structural
failure. Obviously, not only do you
never want to exceed it, but it is prudent not even to get near it.

For Multi-Engine Aircraft,
specifically light twins -VmcThis is the minimum airspeed at
which you can expect to control your
aircraft if you suddenly lost one
engine: and the other engine was
producing takeoff power. By control
it is meant that you are able to stop
the roll into the dead engine, with
rudder, while losing no more than 20
degrees from your original heading.

"STOP !"

Vx (Se) Best angle of climb speed with one
engine out, and the other producing
full power.
Vy (Se) Best rate of climb speed with one
engine out, and the other producing
full power.
1.3 Vso This is the over the fence speed corrected for instrument error due to the
changed angle of attack of the pilot
tube. The aircraft manual lists the
corrected speed for various configurations and this is the figure you
use to arrive at 1.3 Vso. For instance,
if the manual gives Vso as 60 mph .....
the 1.3 Vso is computed as 60 + 30%
-- 78 mph.
I realize that the foregoing is very
basic stuff, and we should all know it,
but it has been my experience after
conducting numerous check-flights,
that many pilots are confused about
these symbols. Obviously it is difficult to commit these symbols and
their numerical counterparts to
m e m o r y, e s p e c i a l l y i f y o u a r e
current in a number of aircraft. The
easiest solution to this is to write
them down on your personal
checklist, and to review them before
each flight. In no time at all, and with
little effort, you will be able to recall
all of them; and this is bound to make
you a safer pilot.
After all, we all agree that Safety is
the name of the game.

F T. P I C K E T T, Va . - F i f t y seven cadets from the Virginia
Wing recently had an
opportunity to attend a land
rescue school here.
The purpose of the course,
according to CAP Maj. Earl R.
Carter, school commander, was
"to expose trainees to proper
and efficient rescue methods and
to orient them to a team concept
of ground rescue operations."
Classes included ground
interrogation, land navigation,
forceable entry techniques,
emergency medical services and
personal' survival.
CAP Capt, David Friedenberg
was mission coordinator for a
simulated rescue exercise which
culminated the weekend
activities. Applying techniques
learned in earlier sessions, four
ground teams followed compass
courses to the "crash" site,
administered first aid to
"injured" passengers and
transported them to rescue
vehicles. A communications
team monitored the ground
teams' progress and relayed the
instructions, which caused Cadet

Take A Bicentennial
"I never had a feeling,
politically, that did not spring
from the sentiments embodied in the Declaration of
Independence...l have often
inquired of myself what great
principle or idea it was that
kept this Confederacy so long was that which
gave promise that in due time
the weights would be lifted
from the shoulders of all men,
and that all should have an
equal chance." (Abraham

for all Michigan residents."
