Aerospace Information
Alabama Wing CAP pilots provided flightsfor 14 teachers from the Boaz school nearAlbertville. The educators involved enjoyedthe experience and stated they this wouldhelp them find new approaches to teachingold material. I am eager to make thisopportunity available to other educators inthe state. This is part of our external AEoutreach. A good deal of what we, as asociety, will be doing in the future will insome way be connected to Aerospace, andall of us, in the Alabama Wing, need tocommit to promoting Aerospace Educationnot only through external CAP activities,such as the fly a teacher program, but at thesame time we need to redouble our internalAE program efforts.AE, first and foremost begins at theSquadron level, and forms a part of bothSenior Member and Cadet development. Wealso need to be mindful that AE is one of thethree missions assigned by Congress toCAP.I am asking each of the unit commanders toensure that we have committed individualsmanning the Squadron AE functions. Iencourage external AE officers to develop arelationship with community organizationsand local school districts. This kind of outreach will help us get the word out aboutAE while at the same time providingvaluable community services.Internal AE Officers, on the other hand,need to encourage Senior Members tocontinue their AE development, and if theyhave not already done so to complete theYeager Test.On the Cadet side we need to ensure that wecontinue to have a solid program in placethat allows for O-Rides, and includes aneducational program that includes modelrocketry and modules based on the Journeyof Flight and Aerospace Dimensions. Wellrounded cadets grow into well roundedcitizens.On April 19th we flew 14 teachers from theZion and New Brockton Schools. Angie St.John from National joined us at theEnterprise airport.
