FEBRUA,RY 1992

WBA~ TO DO IN '92 At the first meeting of the year, Commander Heidi Koeppen outlined what she sees as Squadron goals and objectives during 1992: ATTENDANCE PROMOTIONS ~ - Strive to encourage more participation Initiate documentation for deserving by members. and qualified personnel. by

Encourage fiscal support through dues to restore funds depleted aircraft maintenance costs no longer reimbursed by CANG.

AIRCRAFT UTILI~ION - Maintain the same high level of aircraft use for mission re.sponses as demonstrated in 1991. Concent rate on reimbursible flights as opposed those proficiency flights as are essential to maintaining currency. ES RATINGS - Promote emergency service training & new member qualification. MISSION FOCUS - Emphasize mission participation by all members.

PROMOTE DONATIONS - Initiate a drive to solicite contributions and financial support by local corporations and businesses. Project Officer organizing this effort now is Dan O'Neill. RECRUITING - Volunteers are needed to recruit and indoctrinate new members.

GET -ACTIVES

• AC~VATED - As of the December ~ational Membership List, we had 79 senior members; 64 of these are "Active" as opposed to being "patrons" or pending acceptance; roughly.O "Actives" have been seen at meetings at various times; and, there are about 24 hard core regulars who run the Unit and respond to missions. We'd like to see more "Actives" get involved in the operation of the squadron. How about it ?

There is a lot more all of us can do to assist in achieving these goals. Also, there are a lot of changes already happening in CAP as we start the new year which we all need to prepare for. Such things as: • A shift in emphasis on the types of missions we will become involved with (ie., fewer search missions if General Aviation continues to decline and more CN missions as the war on drugs heats up. • A whole new definition of Emergency Services standards as defined in the latest CAP Regulation 50-15 (Supersedes CAPH 50-15, 15 April 1983. • A revised. CAPR 60-1 (25 Jan'92) to which all pilots must comply. • The budget crunch and its impact 9n the maintenance, operation and management of our aircraft. So, keep the faith folks; and keep SQ-192 on top of the heap.

MEMBER DOINGS • Meet our newest members: SALLY MASON - Also loirs. Mark iiason, Physical Therapist and eager to get involved in CAP activities. She has already shou Lde red work in the administrative area (since the recent departure of our Administrative Officer) by helping new people interpret CAWG l-lanua1 11-1 and processing their personnel actions. We see by this years personnel assignment list that Sally has been named Admin./Personnel Officer. She also wants to get involved in Emergency Services so she can Scan while Mark flies. STEVE TUCKER - A Shell Service Manager, with Commercial and Instrument ratings. lout of the way, soon will be checking pursuing the ES Track with Scanner Course married, ex-USAF and a pilot Be's been busy getting Level out in our aircraft, and is almost completed.

• CHECK PILOTS GET CHECKED: Some of our Check Pilots just received their diplomas for having attended last years National Check Pilot School. These include: Jennie Adams, Andre Baury, Terry Hurdy, Don Sharp and Carlos Tirado. So, Squadron pilots now have quite a stable of Check Pilots to call upon for their check rides. Others also available include Frank Egbert (F5 & F9l), Art Perry (F91) and Hal Stoner (F91 and FS (T-34 only». • TIPPON WEISS was promoted to 2Lt last December - Congratulations TIP. Tip has also been assigned as Logistics Officer, reliev·ng Ed Vreeland.

• ERIC MCDANIEL was promoted to 1Lt last year and we understand he may be returning to the area and perhaps San Jose State. Congrats too Eric. • HEIDI AND KARL-HEINZ KOEPPEN just returned after a two week jaunt to Europe. Hope they bad a wonderful trip and just wanted them to know that the paperwork continued to pile up in their absence. No problem though as San Carlos Airport is only a wastebasket's throwaway from the BFI Transfer Station. • MARX MASON, after getting a thorough transitional checkout in the T-34 under the tutelage of Andre Baury, took his Form 5 check ride with Stoner and is now legal to start working towards his MPS Rating. Another note of interest about Mark. He was anxious to get on the communications pipeline so Bob Fields fixed him up with a CAP radio in his car and a teletype in his home. His radio station licence is pending. • CARLOS TIRADO is now living on campus at San Jose State and although he will be taking Chemistry Tuesday and Thursday evenings (no CAP meetings), be still will be available for ALERTS when needed.

• LARRY SHANE, on invitation from Wing Commander Ernie Pearson, attended the Mission Coordinators Training Seminar at Vandenberg AFB on February 18 Ii 19. Here is a quote of Larry's report as given to Slipstreams: "The topics covered were designed to provide the new MC with the knowledge needed to get started and the old MC with an update on the forms, phone numbers and procedures. It was staffed by the current MCOs, each of whom took responsibility for teaching one segment. of the program. Topics covered paperwork to available resources and search management to working with allied agencies. It was an eye-opening experience which has given me a new sensitivity and appreciation for the work of our MCs. I believe that the interest they show in search and rescue takes commitment, but that to be a successful MC requires the addition of dedication, attention to detail, the love of a classic mystery and the management skills of a corporate executive. My hat is off to these dedicated women and men." By the way, Larry is home again in Belmont - new phone 415-595-2865.

-THRILL OF A LIFETIMEBow many of you HOT pilots yearn to go augering into the sky, tail-chasing another aircraft in mock combat, and watch him as he 5, okes ou t afte r ou 've "lock edon" and pulled the trigger - v ideo trigg er that is? Well, all you have to do is convince your wife (sweetheart) and kids to do what Dennis Quade's family did. They gave him a flight w~th AIR COMBAT OSA on Feb. 1 at San ~ose Jet Center.

ONI WlU GO ON TO OLOft ,.,. ontD. U~ IN n.AMU..

AS a result, Denny has been mentally preparing h'mself for weeks n anticipation of this exciting sortie. He has been aided and betted by Howard Bailey, who experienced a like combat sortie in Atlanta last year in a T-34 yet. Boward primed Dennis good - even to loaning him his "bad back girdle" so the GIS wouldn't wipe out "Mr. Ace". Jow AIR C0I1BAT USA is based in Fullerton, CA, but operates out of San Jose Int'l. one weekend a month. They have four Marchetti SF 260 NATO Air Combat Trainers (260 BP) and each mission is tailored to your evel of experience, ability and AGGRESIVENESS. They provide the flight gear, a briefing on manuevers, and a little formation to the "combat area". You do the fight, the track 1ng and the kill, signaled by smok e ejected from the ta rget aircraft. All the instructor/safety pilots are experienced jet jocks who give the participant a real thrill. Denny is still on cloud 9 and further went on to say that never in his life has he experienced 50 many 6g manuevers trying to escape an enemy or in turn, chasing him (thank God for girdles). One of the pilots lost his lunch though and had to return to base. Does that mean that Denny won ??? Dennis will give us a show-and-tell at the pilots meeting at Sq HQ on Feb.ll

HEY! KEEP YOUR PANTS ON?

Over the last several weeks, I have received some comments regarding the appearance of our C-206. Almost all the comments have centered around how the airplane looks with the wheel pants removed. As a result of these comments, I polled the 206 drivers attending the usual Tuesday night gathering on January 14. The question asked of the 206 pilots was, what do you want? A discussion of the pros and cons ensued and the results are that all the pilots present wanted the wheels naked to facilitate pre/post flight inspections and servicing. This was considering the slight performance loss due to increased drag. Pilots were never known for keeping their pants on anyway so I guess we will leave them off!

CLEAN THE 206!

Although this has been brought up before, the issue is still alive. If you use the airplane you have an obligation to CAP-Sa 192 to clean up occasionally. I am asking the pilots who put bunches of time on this bird to come forward a give it a wash once in a while. Usually the same crew will come down and give it a going over. which is fine, but I am asking the mystery pilots who use the airplane a lot and never clean it to come forward and do your share. We the usual cleaners cannot continue to clean up after you heavy users.

Thank you for your support

MAJOR CHANGES REFLECTED

IN NEW MISSION/FLIGHT

REGS.

Just received on the 1st of February were two CAP Regulations that drastically change the policies and standards pertinent to CAP operational missions and the management of CAP flying programs and aircrews. policies and standards which control the training and qualification of personnel involved in missions. It defines the type of miss ions, the Special ty Ratings of mission personnel, thei r train ing and qualification procedures. This regulation is comprehensive, straightforward and furthermore supersedes the follow regulations, some of which were sadly outdated: Supersedes CAPM 50-15, 15 April 1983; CAPR 55-la, 5 December 1980; CAPM 50-5, 8 August 1975; and CAPM 50-21, 3 November 1971:
60-1 DATED 25 JANUARY 1992 supersedes CAPR 60-1, 11 August 1990. This regulation is an update to clarify a number of pilot cequirements, particularly those pertaining to reimbursable vs nonreimbursable missions. This factor is important as it pertains to insurance coverage under the Federal Employees Compensation Act. Also included is a complete revised table of Mission Symbols which delineate Air Force Reimbursable vs Nonreimbursable Missions. The following is a summary of changes found in this revision. Also, a copy of the Mission Symbols now in effect is included in this mailing for pilot use. CAP REGULATION CAP REGULATION 50-15, 1992 covers all the ·TRAINING CAP OPERATIONAL MISSIONS· dated 1 January
