New CAP-USAF vice commander
Col. Dennis Parkhurst, the former commander
of the Pacific Region, has assumed responsibilities as vice commander of CAP-U.S. Air Force.
The former vice commander, Col. Robert L.
Brooks, officially retires from active duty Aug. 1
and is planning to remain in the Montgomery,
Ala., area.
Read more about the Colonel Parkhurst D his
experiences and background D in the July issue
of the Civil Air Patrol News.

Aircraft designer, wife dies in crash
Crews and aircraft from the Alabama Wing
participated in the late-April search for veteran
pilot and aircraft designer Steve Wittman, 91, of
Oshkosh, Wis.
Mr. Wittman was reported missing April 28
after he and his wife, Paula, failed to arrive in
Oshkosh in his home-built plane.
Sixteen planes and crews from different CAP
units throughout the state participated in a search
near the Bridgeport, Ala. That area was targeted
because the Federal Aviation Administration
received reports from different people saying
they had observed a plane in difficulty. At the
time, it was unclear whether that involved the
missing plane.
Mr. Wittman did not file a flight plan and his
aircraft had no emergency locator radio.
The wreckage was finally spotted by the pilot
of an Alabama State Police helicopter April 29.
The plane had crashed into a rocky bluff overlooking the Tennessee River about 5 miles from
the Bridgeport Airport.
Dennis Flowers, operations director for the
Alabama Wing, and members of the Jackson
County Rescue Squad repelled over the face of
the bluffto where the wreckage was wedged. The
Wittmans did not survive the crash.
Evidence at the crash site and surrounding
area suggested the plane may have sustained
structural damage while in flight which led to a
loss of control and the ensuing crash. The plane
was a high-wing, fabric covered, two-seat airplane designed and built by Wittman.

Serving CAP membership since November 1968

CAP fights proposed $ $M budget cut; "
leadership working at highest levels
SASC subcommittee reconsiders cutting CAP from DoD budget
" The Senate Armed Services Readiness Subcommittee, chaired by Arizona Sen. John McCain, has reconsidered its original recommendation to cut the Civil
Air Patrol completely out of the Defense Department's
fiscal 1996 budget and is now recommending a $5
million reduction.
According to a June 12 news release issued by
Senator McCain, he is concerned about the burden
nondefense and lower-priority military programs place
on an already inadequate military budget. As a result,
he now wants to "reduce the CAP budget by $5 million;
less than the GAO's (General Accounting Office) recommendation." (At this time, CAP is unaware of the
GAO's report).
On June 7, information reached CAP officials that
the senator was considering the elimination of CAP's
funding from the DoD readiness budget. If this were to
occur, Civil Air Patrol's programs and services to
America could cease to exist.
It now appears upon further review of CAP's roll,
Senator McCain is recommending the reduction in,

rather than total elimination of the budget request.
However, CAP officials continue to believe the senator's
posture is based upon some confusion and misunderstanding of the CAP-U.S. Air Force budget request. As
CAP already operates in a very efficient manner, it
cannot fully perform its congressionally assigned charter tasks without its full request.
According to CAP's national commander, this reduction would be disastrous. "It could possibly kill the
CAP program and deprive the Air Force and country of
a vital service," stated Brig. Gen. Richard L. Anderson.
Of the total requested funding for fiscal 1996, CAP's
request represents only 58 percent of the total $27.5
million budget. From this amount, CAP operates all
aspects of its mission (search & rescue, cadet programs, aerospace education and the counter drug program). This also includes a National Headquarters
staff of less than 200 people administering the 1,600

Plans fo National Board Meeting going well
Civil Air Patrol's 1995 National Board Meeting will be
held Aug. 17-19 at the Washington Sheraton Hotel in Washington, D.C., and according to
senior leaders, the expectation
is that attendees will have a
great deal to get excited about.
"Our goal is for everyone who
attends this national board
meeting to leave Washington, D.C.,
more excited about serving in CAP
than when they arrived," said CAP
National Commander Brig. Gen. Richard L. Anderson. "We have the
widest selection of guest speakers
and seminars than we have had in
"We really will have something
to offer every member," added CAP
Executive Director Col. Paul J.
Albano Sr.
According to Don R. Rowland,
CAP's national board meeting
project officer and director of Plans

and Requirements at National
Headquarters, the hotel is situated
in an ideal location. "The Washington Sheraton is in the heart of the
D.C. district, about four blocks from
the National Zoo and only about a
half block to the city's renowned
Metro subway service."
Within 10 minutes on the Metro,
people can be on the Mall, visiting
the national museums and monuments, or tour the National Air and
Space Museum. Fifteen minutes
and a short walk from the Metro
stop and people can be in

Georgetown sitting in one of the
area's famous outdoor restaurants along the Potomac River.
Airlift to the board meeting
will be provided by the U.S. Air
Force and "should be plentiful

Sept. 1.

In 1945, the Allies were celebrating a victory in Europe while keeping
up the fight in the Pacific. The Civil
Air Patrol, only four years old, was
remaining vigilant on the home front.
Yo u n g m e n s u c h a s E d w a r d
Rychlec, of Kansas City, Kan., were
joining other teenaged volunteers in
the Army Air Corps - Civil Air Patrol,
prior to military enlistment.
From May 5-7, a 50-year full circle
was completed in Kansas City, Mo.,
as the city celebrated V-E Day festivities.
Members of the Harry S Truman,
Northland and Richards-Gebaur composite squadrons assisted with
flightline management, crowd control,
aircraft security and CAP recruiting
at the Kansas City Downtown Airport.
Cadet members from Charles R.
Long Composite Squadron served in
a color guard as part of 150-unit parade made up of military members,
veterans and civilians.
Maj. John Rockey, commander of
t h e H a r r y S Tr u m a n C o m p o . s i t e
Squadron of Independence, Mo., related that about every third person
passing the National CAP Public Affairs booth in the terminal at the
Kansas City Municipal Airport would
relate how a friend, family-member
or they, themselves, were CAP members during World War II.
It was during one such visit that
Edward Rychlic stopped and spoke
with Capt. Gary Gregory and cadegs
Derek Louthain and Adam Teer, of
the Richards-Gebaur Composite
Squadron, about the 12 months he
spent as a cadet in the Kansas Squadren #751.
In fact, Mr. Rychlec presented his
CAPF 91-4, Army Air Corps govern-

ment identification card (with photo)
while talking about his experiences.
An estimated 50,000 people visited
the various displays during the threeday event looking at old uniforms,
nose art and unit pictures.
Vintage aircraft from Stinsons to
L-2s, Texans to T-34s, P-38s to P-51s
and C-46s to B-29s were available for
viewing and, for some, to charter rides.
Fly overs by a B-2 bomber, an F-117
Stealth Fighter and four A-10 Thunderbolts from Whiteman Air Force
Base, Miss., were also featured.

Maryland Wing search team locates ELT; state police hold three on $ I 0,000 bond
At 5 a.m. Maj. Robin Vest received a
call at her home in Columbia, Md., from
the Air Force at Langley AFB, Va.
As a qualified mission coordinator,
she was asked to find and silence a
marine emergency locator transmitter
that had been reported stolen and was
intermittently transmitting.
The source, according to satellite data,
was somewhere on the Delmarva Peninsula, a 214-mile long strip of land between the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The northern part is the
State of Delaware. In the middle is the
Eastern Shore of Maryland and the
southern tip is part of Virginia.
: Major Vest called 1Lt. Pare Green, of
Deal Island on the Eastern Shore, at
about 5:15 a.m. She was asked to form
a ground search team to locate the device. Instructions were not to track the
device until the team had contacted the
Maryland State Police.
A rendezvous was set up for the police
station in Pocomoke City, Md., about 5
miles north of the Virginia state line.
But no state troopers could be seen when

the team, which had formed at the hang a r i n S a l i s b u r y, M d . , a r r i v e d a t
Pocomoke in the van.
Representing the Wicomico Squadron were Lieutenant Green and cadets
Eric Tiso, Steve Austin, Jason Harrison,
Justin Green, Aaron Kleiman and Richard Robles.
Finally, after about an hour of waiting, Trooper First Class J. D. Bozman, of
the Princess Anne barracks, noticed the
van and the uniformed group that was
near it. He stopped to see what was
going on. It took some doing to convince
the skeptical lawman that our team, led
by a petite 5-foot-4-inch woman with
young people ranging in age from 13 to
18, wasn't out there for fun and games.
More time was spent getting authorization for the trooper to work with the
ground team.
Meanwhile, back in Salisbury, a group
of shade-tree mechanics were preparing
to move the fuselage of a Piper PA 22
aircraft on a trailer to a location just
s o u t h o f t h e M a r y l a n d - Vi r g i n i a l i n e
called Captain's Cove. The plane had an

ELT and nobody thought to turn it off
prior to transport.
The mission coordinator was on the
western shore, nearly 100 miles away.
An aircraft and crew were launched to
circle the area at 7,000 feet where it
would be in contact with both the ground
team and mission base.
As the trailered aircraft reached its
destination a bump in the road set the
ELT off-- passing less than a half mile
from the ground team.
The search plane was flown by Capt.
Bob Chango with 2nd Lt. Elliott Corn in
the right seat. They started a methodical search to locate the source of the
signal. Finally they were able to use the
direction-finding equipment in the plane
to locate the source of the ELT signal in
Captain's Cove, a restricted community
just south of the Virginia state line.
The ground team made the long drive
down to the area, acquired the signal,
but again were forced to wait. The guard
at the entrance to the development would
not give them permission to enter the

Calls to theAccomack County Sheriffs
Department and the Virginia State Police proved fruitless and frustrating. It
wasn't, until Major Vest asked the .Air
Force people to help, that a call was
placed to the Virginia State Police and,
about 10 minutes later, a trooper showed
Once inside the gate, the ground team
made short work of locating the ELT on
the second floor of a rooming house and
silencing it.
As a result, three people were held on
$10,000 bond and two more were still
being sought. A previously skeptical
state trooper was heard to comment,
"Just like Star Wars."
The air crew, which had returned to
Salisbury for fuel, came back to relay the
information back to mission base. Finally, the ground team s'tarted the long
trip home. The van was out for more
than 10 hours. It logged 157 miles.
The airplane spent 5.3 hours in the
air. By the time Mission Coordinator
Vest closed out the mission, 13 hours
had passed.

150 CAP cadets participate in
N a t i o n a l Yo u t h L e a d e r s h i p F o r u m

One hundred and fifty Civil
Air Patrol cadets participated
in three recent National Youth
Leadership Forums on Security
and Defense held in Washington, D.C. this spring.
Forum participants spent one
week in thenation's capital with
access to a variety of defenserelated activities not available
to the public and were exposed
to many high-level speakers.
One activity was a half-dayvisit at the National War College where students sponsor
seminars specifically for forum
participants and host a lunch
for the forum attendees. The
National War College is the premier joint senior service school
for all military services.
Other activities included
special Pentagon tours, and visits to the Naval Academy at
Annapolis, Capitol Hill, and
other defense-related points of

In all cases, forum presentations are designed specifically
for forum participants who are
given the opportunity throughout the forum to ask questions
and seek information on careers
in security and defense.
Forum participants are
identified through high school

interest surveys and membership in defense-related organizations such as the Sea Cadets,
Air ForceJROTC programs and
CAP. Because of the complexity of subject matter covered
and the high visibility of the
youth involved, only those students recommended by their
unit commanders with an aca-

Cadet participation was one
of several membership initiatives developed by national
headquarters staffto make CAP
membership more meaningful.
It began as a test program and
was later endorsed by the National Executive Committee.
In view of the overwhelming
success of the activity, Ms. Williams stated staff responsibility for the program is being
transferred from the Personnel

Directorate to the Cadet Programs Directorate "where the
forum will be endorsed as yet
another outstanding national
special activity available to eligible CAP cadets."
More than 500 cadets have
participated since the forum was
established in 1993.

nonprofit educational organization not affiliated with or sponsored by any federal agency or
the U.S. government.

According to Col. Robert V.
Payton, director of CAP's Marketing and Public Relations Directorate, CAP missions mean
significant savings to American
taxpayers. "CAP aircraft fly at
a cost of $60 per hour versus a
cost of $1,600 per hour for a CH60 Air Force helicopter or $2,200
per hour for an Air Force C-130
Hercules aircraft. The amount
of money saved by the Ameri-

can taxpayer when CAP flies
44,000 hours in support of Air
Force and other federal agency
missions is quite significant. If
this funding goes away, it most
likely will be the individual
states responsibility to fly and
pay for these search missions."

Force Auxiliary in 1948 by 10

National Uniform Committee submits report to NEC
Common thread: everyone needs to be more aggressive meeting weight, grooming standards
The National Uniform Committee presented its report and
recommendations in May to the
National Executive Committee
and according to CAP's national
commander the uniform debate is now over.
"One of my major goals has
been to lay our national uniform debate to rest once and for
all," said National Commander
Richard Anderson. "Because of
the vision and support of our
region and wing commanders, I
believe we have done precisely
" M y h a t i s o ff t o N a t i o n a l
Vice Commander Col. Paul M.
Bergman, the committee's chair,
Renova Williams, director of
CAP Personnel, and Susie
Parker, chief of CAP Personnel,
for the roles they played in closing this final chapter," the general said.
Though a large number of
agenda items were presented to
the council, only those which
were "passed" by the NEC
the highlights -- are being reported in this article.
A common thread which kept
surfacing in many of the agenda
items considered was that of
the commander's and the general membership's need to be
more aggressive in supporting
the weight and grooming standards as already published in
CAPM 39-1. The National Uniform Committee agreed it is indeed important our senior and
cadet members and national
leadership meet established
weight and grooming standards
when wearing the Air Forcestyle uniform.
General Anderson reminded
all that General F0gleman's approval for CAP senior member's
to place the U.S. insignia on the
new service dress uniform more
than ever before demands compliance to the CAP weight and
grooming standards. If these
standards cannot be met, the
CAP distinctive uniform or civilian clothing, must be worn.
Another common suggestion
was that of reducing the number of uniforms so there is less
confusion as to which uniform
to wear and all members can
have at least one common uniform. However, due to the various mission requirements, CAP
activities and the fact that CAP
distinctive uniforms have been
created for senior and cadet
members not meeting the
weight and grooming standards,
the number of uniform combination items became a very complex, and sensitive issue.
Some members expressed the
opinion that the Air Force
Nomex flight suit should be the
only approved uniform for use
in flight operations. While others felt the white aviator shirt
was the best uniform to fly in,

particularly if the member
doesn't meet the weight and
grooming standards. Others felt
the golf shirt (some even voiced
color preference) was the best
flight uniform, particularly on
extended missions.
Obviously all of these comments have merit and warranted the NEC's consideration.
It became obvious during this
part of the discussion, the more
active and involved a CAPmember is in the different CAP missions, the greater the need for a
wider variety of uniforms to fit
the situation.
Though an easy solution
to the number of uniforms
and when to wear what
was not reached, GeneralAndersonreminded [
the uniform committee
and NEC that CAP
Manual 39-1 already
provides some relief.
The manual outlines
that the basic CAP uniform is the blue shirt/
blouse, blue pants/skirt
and black shoes. Additionally he has previously directed that all squadron, wing,
region and national activities
should have the uniform of the
day specified for both the Air
Force style uniform and CAP
distinctive uniforms. Further
all SAR/DR operations plans
should specify the acceptable
uniforms based upon mission
function and assignment.
Due to the number ofagenda
items the CAP Uniform Committee met for quite some time.
All items were considered by
the NUB and
their recommendations for each
item were submitted to the
NEC for their review, consideration and action.
We will only
cover the agenda
items which

Fogleman approved CAP senior members

Participation in national activities continues to grow
All of the current national activities
have grown beyond the Cadet Programs'
greatest expectations for this year, according to Douglas G. Isaacson, program

"Unfortunately, applications for this
year's national activities are no longer
being accepted," stated Mr. Isaacson.
At least 300 more cadets are attending this year's national activities
compared to last

Flight Encampment accounts for
a great majority of

AFRCC coordinator upset over "misrepresentation"
CAP News Editor
I am writing in response to an article
that appeared in the April 1995 edition
... "Five wings participate in search for
downed Cessna," written by Lt. Col. Hal
Griffin, Kentucky Wing public affairs
While it is good to see CAP portrayed
in a positive light and its SAR efforts
highlighted, it should not be done at the
expense and misrepresentation of those
of us here at the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center.
It appears that recent missions and
coordination between us, CAP and other
agencies (such as the Federal Aviation
Administration, emergency management agencies, etc.) have led the reading
public to incorrect assumptions about
and faulty perspectives of us here at
Langley AFB, Vs.
Specifically, I would like to point out
the paragraph which states that "At
2:23 p.m., Colonel Schmitt received a
call from an FAA official in Indianapolis.
He said they had a last location different
from what the AFRCC had reported ...
Colonel Kavich stood and said 'That is
close to the tower!'." The article continues from there and the aircraft is found
at the location given. To understand
why this bothers us, and me in particular, let me outline what happened from
our log and my memory.
On Feb. 3 my crew came on duty for
the swing shift (2:45 p.m. to 11 p.m.
local/7:45 p.m. to 4 a.m. Zulu). We were
briefed on a QALQ, an initial inquiry on
an aircraft issued before an INREQ, for
N 7 5 4 K V. D u e t o t h e e x p a n s e o f t h e
proposed SAR area (Illinois to North
Carolina) the day shift had begun working this issue long before it became "re-



When the ALNOT was finally issued
Feb. 3 at 8:36 p.m. Zulu, we had been
working the incident for over two hours.
The gentleman with the handle on the
situation at the time was SSgt. Bill
Garms. Things moved very quickly, and
there was a lot of area to cover. He
literally did not leave his seat for over
eight hours.
As shift supervisor, I was monitoring
this incident as well as
the approximately 24
other incidents and missions open at the time.
So many calls were
made and received by
Sergeant Garms that it
became necessary for
me to work alongside
h i m . We k e p t s e p a rate log sheets, making references to each
other's phone calls
in them.
One of the greatest difficulties facing
us was acquiring an NTAP. The aircraft
was not on a flight plan and was not
"squawking" a discrete code. At our
request, the airport manager at Parks
Airport had come in on his own time to
review the tapes, and was able to get us
an exact takeofftime, runway and direction of flight. We made a total of five
calls to the Kansas City ARTCC attempting to get NTAP information, and with
this latest exact information we made a
sixth request. When the response was
not sufficient, and after consultation with
the director of the AFRCC, I made the
decision to use our FAA point of contact
in Washington, D.C. Within a matter of
minutes, the ball was rolling to track

What does all of this mean? It means
that two of us worked this for 13 hours
nonstop. It means that within'hours we
had an NTAP track from Parks Airport
to Evansville, Ind., approach. Within 11
hours we had a projected estimated
time of arrival for Louisville.
During this same time, we alerted
appropriate CAP and emergency management agencies and they were beginning to "gin up."
In less than 20
hours, we had an
NTAP that gave
us a position of

this was very close
to the Mintonville,
Ky., tower, which showed on our sectional, but is apparently not on low-level
charts or approach plates.
At the 23-hour point, we received another NTAP, which we had requested
from the Atlanta ARTCC. This point
was at 37-10.13N and 84-49.24W, which
put it right on top of the tower. This
information was faxed to Kentucky CAP,
Major Carter, Feb. 4 at 9:20 p.m. (Zulu),
a full 24 hours before the Feb. 5 phone
call at 9:23 p.m. (Zulu) reported in the
article. According to the final 122 report,
these "lat/longs" are exactly the location
of the wreckage.
My concern is that, in this mission
and in others, it is unclear to folks exactly how much work and sincere effort

the controllers here put into the missions. I am especially proud of our enlisted personnel who work a rotating
shift schedule that, in essence, makes
activities such as school, sports, time
with family, etc. near to impossible.
They deal with training meetings and
commanders' calls that fall in the "middle
of the night." They adhere to the mission and code of the AFRCC, putting
personal desires and comforts aside "So
that others may live."
When others and I read this article,
we were dismayed and rather upset our
efforts Were being portrayed as both
incorrect and useless. I do not know why
it took CAP over 24 hours to realize and
react to obvious information that we
gathered so quickly and efficiently.
Trust me. We appreciate the work
that CAP does. We recognize the importance of their volunteer status and their
professionalism and expertise. As an
active duty officer who has had her own
share of"tough missions" and "real world
scenarios," it is disheartening to see the
lack of reciprocation by CAP.
We are all on the same team; we are
all in the same business. We need to
work together and not resort to bad
press and rumors.

We~come to your new newspaper
That's rightl Welcon)e to your newspaper m the
new Civil Air Patrol News.
I use the term your because I'm deeply rooted in
reality. Although you may not sign my paycheck, I
know full well the reason for publishing this newspaper is to serve you m the more than 50,000 CAP
members across America and overseas. Coincidentally, that also happens to be the same reason I'm here.
So what does this mean to you? It means a promise

and every month, in a
dynamic publication that

My use of the term
"new" might be a bit more
presumptuous. I know
the newspaper has been serving the CAP membership
since November 1968. And from what I've read so far,
it's readily apparent the editor's who tapped the keys,
sized the photos and proofread the galley before me did
an excellent job.
I use the term new because of the way I view the
process ofputtinga newspaper together. Like building
a new custom home, every editor pieces a newspaper
together in the same fashion -- word by word, story by
story, photo by photo, page by page -- each piece
lending itself to a newspaper's value and design. Each
issue new and different, yet still managing to retain an
editor's unique writing and layout style.
So there you have it. My phllosephy on newspaper
editing. Now let's get down to the nuts and bolts of how
you can get your material published in the CAP News.

If you ever hoped you coul
As in Desert Storm, new technology gives you your precise location information,
detailed database information and the ability to see in the dark.


maginary scenario: It was a
dark and story night. A CAP
Cessna was heading southwest for
a search and rescue satellite hit of an
ELT in New York's Catskill Mountains.
Time: 2 a.m. Altitude: 6,000 feet, between cloud layers. Situation: "Ops normal."
Virg and Bill were up front in the
Skylane; Mike was in the back with a
bunch of newfangled equipment.
As soon as they had departed from
Albany, Mike had connected the
portable electronics. The GPS was
feeding into the notebook computer, as
was the portable compact disk player
and Delorme's MapExpert program.
Power was provided by a portable
12-volt battery (due to the incompatibility of the plane's 28-volt system).
On the screen, a trail of
"breadcrumbs" showed their exact
path over the ground at scales as large
as 1" = 400', plus ground speed,
altitude, course and exact latitude and
With half an hour to go before
they'd arrive over the site, Mike
plotted the exact SARSAT hit and
found it was near a small village in
the mountains west of Catskill, N.Y..
He then opened the SAR-Viewpoint
program, plotted the point, created a
10-mile circle and noted all the
published airports and known wrecks
within that area as possible items of
Returning to the Delorme program,
Mike determined the zip codes of the
area. He then removed the Delorme
CD and inserted the Aviation Locater
CD, which contains the entire listing
of U.S. pilots and aircraft owners.
Running a search for the zip codes in
question, he came up with 3 aircraft
owners and 17 pilots. He then
changed to the SelectPhone CD and
looked up the telephone numbers for
those people, changed back to Delorme
and plotted their address locations,
usually accurate to within a half-mile
stretch of road or city blocks in metro
By now, Virg was picking up the
ELT signal on the direction finder. He
gave the heading and signal strength
to Mike, who plotted it on the computer. The plane was turned 450 to
the right for five miles, then aimed
again at the signal. This created a
triangulation which showed the target
was a few miles northwest of the
SARSAT hit. That information was
radioed to both the mission coordina-

tor and the ground team, which was
still about one hour away by van.
As the plane neared and overflew
the loudest area of the signal, there
was no way to descend due to the high
terrain and IFR weather. So, a series
of cloverleaf turns were made and the
inbound tracks successively narrowed
until Virg and Bill felt they had the
ELT located within a 500- to 1,000foot area.
In the back, a smile came over
Mike's face. All the track lines were

clearly shown on his computer. They
repeatedly crossed very close to the
junction of Route 13 and Pond Hollow
Read. Even from 6,000 feet up in the
cloudy night, Mike knew the ELT was
coming from the area of Terry Smith's
house. Terry, 47, was a private pilot.
Mike looked up the phone number,
radioed the MC and three minutes
later the ELT was shut off.
On the way back to Albany at about
3 a.m. the weather started to clear.
Suddenly, a second ELT was picked up
north of Little Round Top mountain.
Virg and Bill again accurately narrowed the search to a forested area,
but there were no houses or pilots
living conveniently nearby. From a
safe altitude of 1,500-foot AGL, the
pilots could see nothing but black
forest below.
While the pilots circled, Mike uncased his surplus Russian tank
commander night vision goggles and
scanned the area. (Note: it is obviously unsafe for a pilot to use these for
the kind of flying we do, but if the
pilots are night flying at a safe VFR
altitude, there's no harm in the
observer using them.) With their 1:1
viewing magnification, there was no
tendency to create nausea and scanning was easy.
Soon, he spotted a large white "T'
in the trees -- an airplane. The
ground crew, along with local sheriff
and other rescue personnel, was
diverted to the spot. They found a
downed C-172 and saved the life of the
injured pilot.
Today's reality?
Same as above! We currently have

all of this equipment and have demonstrated its usefulness and safety. We
have found a few glitches and are
working on improvements. It's also
expensive -- $2,700 and up for the
computer and map equipment -- but
we see some ways to bring costs down.
We are early in the process, but
expect to soon have detailed suggestions and recommendations which
others might wish to try. For now,
we'd be interested in hearing from
other SAR innovators from around the
country. Are you working on similar
concepts? Let's get our heads together
and see what we can come up with.
In upcoming articles, we'll show
how this map equipment is being used
to improve pilot training and provide
mission air operations with precise
reports of areas searched.
For now, we see the value of this
map equipment as follows:
~, In aircraft on night ELT search,

In ground team van at mission

Arizona-style remote location feedback

14-year-old Maryland boy flies high;
spirits lifted to well over 4,000 feet
B A LT I M O R E , M d . - - J o h n
O'Malley has never been seated
in the cockpit of an aircraft, yet
he has became fascinated with
the idea after of flying after it
was presented to him by his
home-care nurse.
John, the 14 year old son of
Michael and Gina O'Malley, of
Phoenix, Md., has acute lymphocytic leukemia, a cancer of
the blood. This disease is treatable and John's leukemia is now
in remission.
The harshness of the chemotherapy drugs, however, left
John's immune system extremely weak. The weakness
has allowed an opportunistic infection to develop, which has
become as serious as the leukemia.
Because the infection has not
responded to any of the standard drugs, John is now receiving an experimental drug to
combat the disease.
Recently, John was taken to
Glenn L. Martin State Airport

to experience first hand the
thrill as part of the squadron's
project "Air Wish," a special air
mission of the squadron.
Dressed in a flight suit and
an electric-blue baseball cap,
John was greeted by Lt. Col.
Ralph Vogt, group commander
of the Maryland Wing, and introduced Capt. Walter Coats,
Glenn L. Martin Squadron commander and his pilot.
As John climbed into the aircraft cockpit, Captain Coats
explained the myriad of instruments and dials. John's seat
belt was fastened and the engine was started. Radio clearance was given by ground control for the aircraft to taxi to the
runway. The tower gave clearance for take off and with a
quick push on the throttle John
was airborne in seconds.
John was given an aerial tour
of northern Baltimore County,
circling the Loch Raven Reservoir and then on to Phoenix
where John lives. They flew over

John's house where he wasiable
to pick it out from the air. J
The aircraft then climbed out
to a safe altitude with a c~ising speed of 100 mph Where
John was able to take the control of the aircraft under the
command of Captain Coats.
Resuming control, Captain
Coats turned the plane south
for a tour of the Inner Harbor of
Baltimore City, after which they
turned north and returned to
Glenn L. Martin State Airport.
There was a second aircraft
which roared down the runway
just a few seconds after John's
plane broke ground and flew as
the chase aircraft for this mission.
Aboard this aircraft, which
was provided by Steinman Aviation, Baltimore, was Colonel

posed by National CAC).
[] Phase IV completion - The NEC approved the award
of the Ira C. Eaker certificate and ribbon for completion of Phase I~. (Proposed by National CAC).
[] COP Miniature Medal - Previous to the current
cadet program leading to the Spaatz award, the old
cadet program offered as its highest award the Cadet
Certificate of Proficiency ribbon to those cadets earning it. Since the number of senior members who earned
the COP as cadets is small there is no miniature medal
for wear on the mess dress to represent earning this
distinction. Due to the small quantity needed the book
store felt it cost prohibitive to cast a medal for the few
remaining senior members earning the COP. Lt. Col.
Ted Chavez, of PACR, agreed to pay the cost of casting
and manufacturing the COP medal if approved by the
NEC. The NEC accepted the offer and approved the
motion with the added stipulation that the first COP
medal cast be given to Lt. Col. Chavez.
[] It was recommended that CAP reinstate the distinctive Walt Disney designed "Pluto" Emergency Services patch. The NEC agreed and this patch will be
optional until the current ES patch is phased out as
the Bookstore stock is depleted. This patch retraces
some of CAP's heritage and will eventually be included
in other designs and publications.
[] Cadet Community Service Ribbon - was approved.
Design is to be decided and accomplished as soon as
possible. Cadets providing 60 hours of community
service, verified by a volunteer coordinator, will be eligible for this award.
[] National CAC recognition - it was approved that
members of the National CadetAdvisory Council place
a gold star on the basic CAC ribbon. Active members
of the National CAC will also wear a gold shoulder
cord in place of the red or blue cord. (requests that
senior members be allowed to wear cords of various

types were disapproved.) (Proposed by National CAC).
[] Optional removal of cadet ribbons was approved.
Cadets earning the Mitchell award, at their option,
may remove the Curry through Goddard ribbons when
wearing the light blue shirt/blouse. (Proposed by National CAC).
[] The NEC approved the Orientation Pilot Ribbon
to recognize orientation pilots. The award is retroactive. The basic ribbon is for 50 orientation flights with
a clasp for each additional 50 flights. Design of the
ribbon and order of precedence will be determined by
National Headquarters. (Proposed by National CAC).
[] Wear of USAF buttons on mess dress. This has
been previously approved and includes the wear of the
newer Hap Arnold buttons.
[] National Disaster Ribbon. The NEC approved adding a "V" device to denote volunteerism to the current
disaster relief ribbon for those members working a
disaster of national scope. Application for the award
can go back to Jan. 1, 1990, if the national commander
approves the disaster as having been national in scope
(e.g. Andrew, Midwest floods, Mt. St. Helen, California earthquakes, Oklahoma Bombing). Once the disaster is approved for recognition, the on-scene commander will request the award With approval by the
appropriate wing/region commander. For future
awards the disaster will be defined by the National
Commander, and the wing or region commander will
approve the award.
[] Lastly, the NEC confirmed continuation of its policy
to mirror USAF uniform changes and wear policies.
For example, CAP will mirror recent AF changes on
the V-neck sweater policy and scrambled eggs on the
service hats and visors for majors.
General Anderson has stood down the National
Uniform Committee for the remainder of his term as
national commander, mirroring the actions of Air
Force Chief of Staff Gen. Ronald Fogleman.

Clearing Canadian customs
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association is
applauding the U.S. Customs Service decision to
allow qualified aviators crossing the U.S. border
from Canada to clear customs by telephone. The
program is scheduled to start later this summer.
AOPA has been negotiating streamlined procedures directly with top Customs officials since
New ADCUS (Advise Customs) procedures for
the northern border will permit most preregistered pilots to arrive at any U.S. public-use airport after obtaining customs clearance by telephone.
~This telephone ADCUS and selective inspection program will be a major improvement for
everyone," said Bill Dunn, AOPA vice president
of regional affairs.
"It' s the honest pilot wlm notifies customs.
Now the U.S. Customs Service can concentrate
resources on their real problem: those who try to
evade them."
To participate in the program, pilots must
complete a onetime"program registration" which
can be accomplished by mail or telephone.
Cleared flights can arrive at any public-use
U.S. airport, not just traditional customs-designated port-of-entry airports. U.S. Customs reserves the right to meet and inspect any returning aircraft and does intend to perform random,
complete inspections to ensure the "honor system" is working.

Publishing new CFI checklist .....
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association
Air Safety Foundation is publishing a new quarterly specifically for the nation's 73,000 flight
instructors. CFI Checklist will be sent free to
every Certificated Flight Instructor.
"CFI Checklist gives flight instructors the
tools they need to provide top-notch instruction,"
said Bruce Landsberg, ASF executive director.
"CFIs are a critical link in the aviation safety
chain. That's why ASF is devoting new resources
to help CFIs better teach the skills and knowledge all pilots need to become and remain proficient."
The inaugural issue of CFI Checklist includes
articles on how to use computerized DUAT briefings to enhance student training, "tuning up"
students for spring weather flying, and improving the pass rate for CFI applicants.
CFI Checklist is the successor to ASF' s Flight
Instructor Quarterly.
"Our new publication features improved graphics and a tighter focus on teaching techniques,"
said Don Koranda, ASF vice president of training. "CFIs will find something new in every issue."
CFI Checklist will include both teaching tips
and ideas for attracting and keeping students.
CFIs will also be updated on Air Safety Foundation activities directly affecting instructors and
AOPA Air Safety Foundation pioneered the
16-hour CFI refresher clinic launched last year.
In an efficient two-day weekend course, ASF's
experienced teachers use multimedia to update
flight instructors on changing rules, airspace
requirements and teaching techniques.
AOPA's"Project Pilot II" is offering free educational and motivational resources to the nation's
flight instructors and their students. More than
1,500 CFIs are already enrolled.
All Certificated Flight Instructors will receive
a copy of CFI Checklist automatically each quarter. Single copies can be obtained by calling 1800-638-3101.

Middle East Region -- More
than 250 members of the Middle
East Region took part in a
weekend search and rescue
training program at Fort Pickett,
Va., recently.
The training mission was
coordinated by both CAP and Air
Force personnel.
Extensive training was
completed by more than 150
members who were seeking
qualifications in their field of
service to the organization, either
in ground team search and
rescue, or air search and rescue
Eighteen corporate aircraft
were available for aircrew
members working toward
becoming mission qualified as a
pilot, scanner or observer.
There were three types of air
search mission training scenarios for aircrew members, with
each member having an option
to train in more than one area.
Visual grid searches, vectoring sorties and emergency
Iocator transmitter searches
gave air crew members the
opportunity to become more
proficient. Also, at least 12
corporate ground vehicles from
throughout the region were
available for use during the
weekend training.
One "out-of-the ordinary"
event held during the training
session was a presentation by
Buzz McKenzle, of the North
Carolina SAR Dog Association.
The dog and his trainer were
transported to Virginia by a
North Carolina Wing aircraft
piloted by Bruce Ponder,
Asheville Composite Squadron.
The frequent takeoffs and
landings of a Black Hawk
medivac helicopter thrilled
members of the ground SAR
classes for several hours. The
aircraft was assigned to Fort
Bragg, N.C., and was assisting
with Fort Pickett training activities.
The hulk of a Coast Guard
helicopter was airlifted into the
search area around Fort Pickett
and used as a target for air
search teams. MaJ. Dan
McFadden, a Virginia Air Force
Reservist, was responsible for
coordinating the arrangements
for airlifting the wreckage in and
out of the search area.
Another added feature to this
"SAR college" was a presentation by the Maryland Wing
Honor Cadet Drill Team.
Members watched in amazement

perfect performance
