This information is to emphasize to pilots the necessity of adhering
to good operating practices and procedures, particularly when operating at or near airports.
The historic seasonal fluctuations in student flight training, pleasure flying, and business operations are being supplanted by continuous
year-round high levels of flight activity. This increased activity necessitates added attention to compliance with good operating practices
and greater operational discipline, especially when flying in the

The cooperative effort of all pilots, professional flight crews,
operators, flight instructors, airport managers and military base
is needed to emphasize awareness of potential traffic
conflicts near airp6rts and to initiate appropriate training and educational programs to improve operational discipline during this phase

Farewell, Good Luck
This is my final message to you as National Commander
f Civil Air Patrol. On Oct. 31, I shall be retiring from the
ir Force.
Over the years which I have spent in military service,
I have felt very strongly that civil aviation has a vital role
to play in helping keep America first in air power and
dominant in the world of aviation.
From the beginning, Civil Air Patrol has had as one of
its purposes the use of civil aviation to aid, in a non-combatant way, in the defense of this country. Promoting air power
as a means of keeping America free is also one of its purCHAIRMAN OF THE
The tremendous reservoir of people interested in ariation and in serving their country has

Commander, has been been a challenging asNATIONALBOARD
During these past few months, it has

dition, a number of new programs have been added to help
CAP fulfill its aerospace education mission.
These include an expanded flying training program,
generating new interest in aviation among young people; the
Advanced Jet Familiarization Course; Cadet Leadership
School; Career Counselling Seminar; and the participation
of girls in the International Air Cadet Exchange.
Senior members have not been overlooked, either. CAP's

Doylestown Cadets Engaged in Link Training
'DOYLESTOWN, Pa.- Members
of the Doylestown Sq. have recently been undergoing flight simulator
training at Willow Grove Air Reserve Facility.
Under the instruction of Mr.
Robert Wargo, instrument instructor t Willow Grove for the past
nine years, Doylestown members
have utilized more than 100 hours
of Link trainer time.
The cadets have learned VOR
(very high frequency omni range)
and ILS (instrument landing systems) in the P-2 Link Trainer.
Mr. Wargo stated, "R is a pleasure to work with boys and girls
who are so eager to learn and who
catch on so quickly."
Other members of the 913~h Tactical Airlift Group at Willow Grove
working with cadets in the Link
program are Leo Kornheisl and
Richard Lefebre, and other teehniclans, operators and maintenance

Reporter Tries It
MRS. HARRY McCANH, left, reporter for the Doylestown, Pa.,
Daily Intelligencer, tries her hand at the controls of a C-119
flight simulator at Willow Grove, Pa., Air Reserve facility.
After seeing her 14-year-old daughter, Cadet Basic Theresa
McCann, a member of the Doylestown Camp. Sq. try it, she
figured she could too. Acting as her co-i)ilot is Capt. Joseph
- C. Ciaaci, squadron commander.

Practice "Flight"
DOYLESTOWN, PA., COMP. SQ. Cadet Basic Donald Thomas
keeps his eyes on the instruments as he prepares for a takeoff
in a Link trainer at Willow Grove, Pa., Reserve facility. His
next move will be a quick look at the check list, then at the
instruments again to make sure his "plane" is under control.

Turner, Snyder Top List
Of Personnel Changes

Maj. Richard Copenh.aver is offleer in charge of the trainer.
Trainers are used for proficiency
training of reserve pilots for basic
instrument flying and radio navigation.
It was thought by many that cadets would tire of the Link after
the novelty wore off. Instead, a
squadron official reports, R is hard
to keep them away.
Lt. Doris Gensler, who has been
scheduling cadets in the Link, says
her phone stays busy with cadets
asking about the program.
Mr. Wargo has also allowed the
cadets to "fly" the C-119 simulator
which is located in the same room.
These cadets will probably be able
to fly and land the C-119 on instruments if an emergency should
call for it`
When they first were allowed to
use the C-119 simulator a few cadets would "~ash." When a simulator crashes, bells ring, lights go
on and off and the operator actually thinks he is in the process
of crashing. First hand reports
from cadets say it is a frightening
Bu~ cadets are still sitting inside the simulator, inside the room
and are just as safe as they were
when they enCered.
This is as close as they ~ne to
actual flying.
