Welcome From
California C.A.P. On
Her Return

Lt. Juan Tinnirello,
Amelia Earhart Squadron 188
Scores of California Civil Air Patrol cadets and
seni ors were on hand at Oakl and Airport on the last
day of Mayas aviatri x Linda Finch touched down in
her vintage Lockheed Electra, completing an epi c
round-the-world flight in commemoration of Amelia
Earhart's flight sixty years before.
Her arrival tri ggered a festive round of celebra-
tions, highlighted by f lags from 22 separate coun-
tries and states Finch had visited on her flight - flags
unfurl ed upon her return by Civil Air Patrol mem-
bers who formed a memorabl e color guard for the
Texas pi lot. Linda Finch graciously posed with the
cadets and eni ors, signing autographs and recount-
ing details of her flight. She told them: " If you have
fait h in yourself, anything is possible, and you can
accomplish your dreams."
Later at a reception held by the Western Aero-
space Museum and the Alameda Commonwealth
Club, Col. Angelo Porco of Pacifi c Region read a
proclamation from Civil Air Patrol making Ms.
Fi nch an honorary member of the Amelia Earhart
Senior Squadron 188 in Oakl and. Finch reciprocated
by enthusia ti cally agreeing to appear as featured
speaker at the CAP National Board Meeting in Las
Vegas next month.
Finch says she' ll now devote her travels to aero-
space education. She pl ans to tour the nation, talking
with young people about the many opportuniti es
open to them in aerospace.
Much of the publi c interest surrounding the
24,000 mil e fli ght by Li nda Finch was generated
through the tireless efforts of California Wing
Deputy Director of Public Affairs, LTC. Sydney 1.
Wolfe, who worked for months setting up and coor-
dinating departure and arrival ceremonies at Oak-
land Airport. -tt
Col. Angelo Porco of Pacific Region inducts pilot Linda
Finch into California Civil Air Patrol as an honorary mem-
ber of Amelia Earhart Squadron 188 in Oakland.

Balancmg The World Since 1954
The VIBREX 2000
is a high capability
vibration analysis
and balancing sys-
tem that rapidly and
accurately acquires and analyzes aircraft vibration. It uses that
data to calculate an instantaneous balance solution to reduce air-
plane propeller vibration levels. The VIBREX 2000 also furnish-
es accurate helicopter vibration amplitude and phase for polar
chart calculations of rotor balance solutions. It also serves as a
spectrum analyzer and provides the operator with a view of the
entire vibration environment of his aircraft.
Aircraft repair stations and private aircraft owners will find the
VIBREX 2000 to be the best and most cost effective single tool
for reduction of overall operation and maintenance costs.
Reduced propeller and rotor vibration translates into increased
reliability, reduced mean time between failure for avionics,
mechanical and aerodynamic structures, and better ride comfort
for pilots and passengers. The VIBREX 2000 can be ordered as
a complete system package for much less than its closest com-
petitor. Call today for a quotation.

Focus of
Search for
Cessna 172
By SIM Wm. Wayne Peterson
An intensive nine-day search for a
mi ss ing Ces na 172 in late June has
ended in disappointment for Civil Air
Patrol volunteers working out of the 30
th
Compos ite Squadron in Santa Mari a.
The aircraft remains mi ss ing at press
time and the Air Force has ordered CAP
to suspend the search.
Some 2,000 man-hours of search
time was directed at f inding the rented
plane, whi ch departed Santa Barbara on
the evening of June 2 1S!, headed in the
directi on of Santa Ynez, onl y 35 mil es
away. Nearl y 250 sorti es were fl own by
CAP aircraft in additi on to many fli ghts
by the Santa Maria Count y She ri ff ' s
Aero Squadron, and heli copter mi ssion
by the 76 RQF at Vandenberg Air Force
Base. In additi on, the Santa Mari a Corps
of the Sa lvati on Army kept everyone
fed, serving lunch to the searchers dail y
throughout the mi ss ion.
Said Captain David L. Gri er, Squad-
ron 30 Commander: "This was an ex-
treme ly difficult mi ss ion in whi ch we
had to cover a large area. CAP members
from Squadron 30 and supporting units
worked long hours and I am extremely
pleased with the ir professional perfor-
mance."
An area of 2,500 quare mil es of
rugged telTitory was searched during the
operati on. Squadron, based at the Santa
Maria Airport, is considered one of the
f inest " turn-key" bases in the state. It
can gear up for a search within an hour
and provides an operati ons room, radi os
and computer capability. Crews can be
comfortabl e during overni ght stays with
hot showers and sleeping areas.

Tri-State SAREX Tests
Teamwork Across
State Lines
By Major Wyn Selwyn
Civil Air Patrol Emergency Services volunteers
from three western states pooled their expertise at
Lake Havasu City, Arizona in mid-March to te t the
level of cooperation possible among three wings: Ari-
zona, California and Nevada. It marked the flfSt time
ever that inter-state cooperation had been tried.
Nearly 200 CAP personnel responded to the
SAREX on the banks of the Colorado River, at Havasu
Airport. More than fifty aircraft participated in the ex-
ercise, which was the culmination of six months plan-
ning for staffs of the three wings.
Arizona served as the hos t, with the London
Bridge Composite Squadron 50 I in the role of the
SAREX ba e of operations. The Tri-State exercise sce-
nario cal led for simulation of a joint search and re cue

effort, using the combined CAP ES resources of all
three participating wings. An integrated Operations
Control Center and Integrated Communications Center
enabled the exercise to work smoothly.
After a hearty breakfa t, crew reported in early
from their billets upriver at Laughlin. Aircrews were
then assigned search grids and flew an average of two
hour sorties in grid, while others flew route searches.
Meanwhile, ground teams served as si mulated search
targets.
A total of s ixty-e ight corporate and member-
owned aircraft participated during the three-day exer-
cise. One hundred and eighty-six ES-rated per onnel
logged in for duty, and one-hundred and twenty-nine
sorties were flown.
Co-project officer, LTC Ted Suchecki called the
event "an unqualified succes , and proof that CAP
people have the goodwi ll and professionalism to work
across state lines for the common good of the commu-
nity." There are reports of a four-state exercise in the
works for 1998.

Inland Empire Group 18 Part of
Team During County-Wide D.R.E.
A major earthquake has devastated parts of River-
side County. Civil Air Patrol volunteers quickly open a
base at Group 18 Headquarters, joining with the City
of Hemet and Riverside County disaster relief teams to
bring help to the stricken area. The May 8'h exercise
was only a drill , of course, but the simulated quake
scenario went a long way toward cohesion among the
participants , and letting the community know that
CAP is always poised to help.
The seventy-five CAP volunteers were tasked rig-
orous ly by the American Red Cra s, the Hemet Valley
Medical Center, two local school di strict and the Met-
ropolitan Water Di strict of Riverside County, accord-
ing to Capt. "0" Fringer, the DRE project officer. As
part of the scenario, the ho pital needed critical surgi-
cal devices, their own having been destroyed by the
"quake." A CAP aircraft, carrying a surgical nurse, was
dispatched to Palm Springs to obtain the life-givi ng
implements.
The Hemet and San Jacinto School districts also
called on CAP aircrews to fly reconnai ssance missions
to locate a "mi sing" school bus and to check on cam-
pus integrity in the aftermath of the "quake." Three
water department officials also were flown aboard
Mission pilot Sean Lynch (San Bernardino Sq. 5) has hi s

Wernick, USAF (Pacifi c Region). (Photo by Maj. Wyn

CAP aircraft to survey the condition of various key
pipelines and dams in the area, according to Capt.
Fringer.
Water official D. Puttman lauded Group 18's re-
sponse to the community's needs in a story which ap-
peared in the magazine of the California Utilities
Emergency Association, ALERT:
"The key to effective CAP support is to e tabli h a
strong relationship with the local CAP Group and in-
volve them. During a recent exercise with MWD, CAP
sent a mission coordinator directly to the Incident
Command Center while flight crews flew several sor-
tie to spot damage. CAP also used its exten ive radio
network to report damage directly, giving incident
command staff real-time damage reports." _(

Big Bear Disaster
Relief Exercise
By U. Col. Peggy Beelby, CAP
The three-day Big Bear disaster relief exercise
from May 30 through June 1, simulating a 7.75 earth-
quake, demonstrated that the Mountain Mutual Aid
Association knows what to do should a major emer-
gency hit the Big Bear Valley.
The U.S. Air Force Auxiliary (Civil Air Patrol)
Squadron 6750 and other CAP units from throughout
California were alerted to provide aerial transport for
Bear Valley Electric and other Mountain Mutual mem-
bers assessing simulated damage as required by the
Emergency Operations Center (EOC) established at
the Big Bear City Fire Station under the direction of
Chief Brad Lane.
The simulated earthquake after-effects were com-
plicated by complete disruption of electric power, tele-
phone, and water lines. Supplanting the downed tele-
phone lines, radio communication was established be-
tween CAP communicators at the EOC and out lying
points and between RACES (Radio Amateur Civil
Emergency Services) stations at the EOC and the Big
Bear City airport. RACES is an arm of the Sheriff and
the Fire Departments providing backup communica-
tions during an emergency.
CAP also set up a triage center coordinated with
Bear Valley Community Hospital to train emergency
medical personnel and test capabi lity to care for per-
sons injured in such a disaster.
Civil Air Patrol also tested and evaluated its profi-
ciency in searching for damage, identifying it, and re-
porting the extent to the EOC. Such sorties included
examining dams at Lakes Silverwood and Arrowhead,
examining the California Aqueduct for damage, as-
sessing damage to bridges and similar structures along
specified key surface arteries within a 40-mil e radius
of the simulated epicenter, and assessing damage to
power lines and microwave towers within the simu-
lated damage area.
CAP ground teams equipped with four-wheel-
drive off-road vehicles and electronic direction finding
equipment made close-up inspection of suspected
damage sites and found a simulated aircraft wreckage
presumably resulting from an earthquake event.
U.S. Air Force inspectors who evaluated Civil Air
Patrol's participation expressed satisfaction with the
preparation and conduct of the exercise.

New "Marina Cadet Flight"
By Capt. Athan Constantine
A gala inauguration ceremony was held at Marina
Airport in March for the newly-created "Marina Cadet
Flight" of Group II, California Wing.
The day began with a full-blown SAREX at Ma-
rina Airport. Group II te ted its capability to respond at
a moment 's call and set up a Mi ss ion Base in an unim-
proved airfield. Oakland Squadron 188 dispatched its
Mobile Communications Unit (mounted on a 4X4 ve-
hicle) the evening before, and within a few hours the
crew of three seniors had put up three 40-foot antenna
towers, connected them to their Mobile Communica-

NEW "MARINA CADET FLIGHT"
Continued . ..
Flight's assembly Hall with field phones via a field-
phone switchboard. A portion of the large Hall was set
up as Mission Base and the rest was decorated with
material that came from National , California Wing,
Squadron 60, and other CAP members.
Two hundred Seniors and Cadets from different
Squadrons and a large number of CAP and private air-
craft participated in the SAREX and made the large
ex-military tarmac look like it was a major staging area
for "Desert Storm."
At 1200 hours the inauguration/ribbon cutting cer-
emony began with a Cadet Color Guard posting the
colors. Air Force Chaplain Maj . Guy did the invoca-
tion. Capt. A. Constantine, Group II Operations Direc-
tor and Squadron 60 Commander, addressed the public
and introduced Col. Angelo Porco, CAWG's past com-
mander who was the speaker of the day and had just
arrived from Los Angeles after a marathon drive to-
gether with CAWG's Director of Public Affairs Maj .
Wyn Selwyn and Recruiting Director Lt. Col. Beavers.
Among the dignitaries were Monterey County Su-
pervisors, City Mayors, and City Council members.
Marina City Mayor Mr. James Vocelka cut the ribbon
together with Col. Porco. The dignitaries and public
visited the bustling with activity new Cadet facility,
listened to the SAREX communications at the Mobile
Communication Center, and examined CAP Aircraft
and equipment. Snacks and refreshments were served
while Athan Constantine and SAREX personnel had
the opportunity to answer their questions concerning
the SAREX and the CAP Cadet program.
By the end of the day the new Cadet Flight had re-
ceived ten new Cadet applications with their checks
ready to be sent to National and distributed another 25
applications to parents who did not have their check-
books with them.
The real surprise, though, had not yet come. Mon-
day morning Athan Constantine received a call from
the Marina City Manager to join him Tuesday at a lun-
cheon meeting. During that meeting he informed him
that the Marina City Council had voted Monday morn-
ing to give the new Cadet Flight one more building for
storage purposes, and the Airport Tower (Marina Air-
port is an uncontrolled airfield and the tower is not be-
ing used by the airport) for office use and communica-
tions facility. When the meeting was over, Athan
Constantine had also in his hands two Senior Member
applications: one from the City Manager and one from
a Marina City councilman. 1:c

Kim Reed
A Success Story
By Major Nancy Brady
In Civil Air Patrol , we watch cadets grow and
tum into successful adults. One such fonner cadet
is Kim Reed. She is now the Wing Commander at
the United States Air Force Academy, and after
graduation, will be going to England to attend
graduate school on a Marshall Scholarship. She
will be studyi ng international relations. After
graduate school, Kim expects to attend flight
training to become an Air Force pilot.
Kim joined CAP in 1988. She was a member
of Squadron 36 in San Jose, CA. She served in
various positions including Cadet Commander.
Her highest rank eamed was that of Cadet Major.
Miss Reed worked hard whi le a member of
Civil Air Patrol and her hard work paid off. On 2
June 93 she received an appointment to the United
States Air Force Academy. She was nominated by
Califomia Congressman Dan Edwards.
Kim says that her CAP training helped her in
many ways at the Academy. In addition to the ba-
sic military skills and knowledge of military pro-
tocol , CAP gave her self-confidence, especially
from working as a taff member at encampments.
She goes on to say that once you have done some-
thing, it is easier the second time around.
Wing Commander Reed recently spoke at the
Cadet Conference in Coronado, CA. The cadets
found her talk inspirational.
Kim said "Don ' t ever give up on your dreams
or goals. But also realize that in order to achieve
them, you must work hard. Always remember that
the more you put into something, the more you
will get out. It 's about giving of yourself and mak-
ing personal sacrifices for the team. Your goal in
Civil Air Patrol should be to contribute al l that you
can so that when you leave CAP, it will be better
than when you started."

Cadet Conference '97
By Major Nancy Brady
Cadets are very special people. Watching the fu-
ture leaders of tomorrow can' t help but in pire pride.
This is the feeling one gets while watching the activi-
ties at the annual Cadet Programs Conference held 14-
16 Feb. at the Naval Amphibious Base in Coronado,
Califomia. The event was attended by 150 cadets and
seniors from throughout California Wing.
Cadet Project Officer, C/Lt. Col. Steven Skullr
said that his goal for this conference was "For every-
one to have fun and enjoy themselves. To make new
friends, experience CAP at a higher level than just the
squadron level environment, and work on the standard-
ization of cadet activities."
Throughout the weekend, cadets attended a variety
of semi nars. They ranged from "Being a Leader" to
"Jodi es Made Easy." There were a total of 20 semi nars.
Thirty lucky people were treated to a tour of the San
Diego Aerospace Museum.

SAFETY

Safety Officer Group 9
WIRE STRIKES or
"ONE STRIKE AND YOU'RE OUT"
During the past year there has been another wire
strike in the Rosamond area, an ultrali ght hitting a util -
ity wi re (440 volts) near 120th St. and Rosamond
Bl vd., destroyi ng the aircraft and its pilot. Unfortu-
nately a wire strike is a game of "one strike and you' re
out." Rosamond is located twenty miles west from
Edwards AFB, CA.
To help prevent these type of accidents a pilot
should be aware that:
1. Most wire strikes are below 200 feet AGL and
70% of all reported hits are at an altitude of 100 ft.
AGL or below.
2. Most strikes occur on a clear day (those near
the skypark did) with three miles visibi li ty or more and
a cei ling of 1000 ft. or more (90%).
3. Wire strikes involve the most ex perienced
more than any ot her class, i.e., ATP, Commercial,
CFIs, and among the rotary wing pilots the highest ri sk
group are pilots with more than 10,000 fli ght hours.
4. Remember that the pilot is directly responsible
for obstruction avoidance; this has been affirmed by
both the F.A.A. and Civil Courts.
There are many things that a pilot can do to avoid
wires and other obstr ucti ons. Following are a few
thoughts on thi s subject:
I. Study your Aeronautical Charts for obstruc-
tions in the areas that you plan to fly. I remember my
first fli ght to the east coast, in a li ght aircraft, several
years ago. I started finding lots of tall towers (1500 ft.
to 2000 ft. AGL) along my route of flight. Those with
long multipl e guy wires awaiting to snare me if I got
too close; it was quite an awakening for me to see and
avoid them. I kept a close watch and used my charts to
locate them. However most charts do not depict most
lines and towers less than 200 ft. AGL. ~  
Maj. Robert Carver (left) and Maj. David Widrig share a
"logbook" moment next to the CAP glider at 29 Palms Air-
port.
What Goes Around
Comes Around
By Maj. Robert Carver
Orange County Composite Squadron 56
On September 28, 1996 Major Widrig of Group
15 soloed Major Carver from Squadron 56 in the
CAP Schweitzer 233 glider at Twenty-Nine Palms
Airport. What is so unusual about thi s is that almost
exactly 24 years ago, Major Carver (then a CFI)
cleared then Cadet Widrig to fly solo in powered air-
craft. Major Carver at that time was a CAP member
for the second time, having been a cadet in the early
1950's, prior to completing college and a 5V2 year
tour on active duty flying in the USAF. Major
Carver rejoined CAP in January 1996 after flying
for American Airlines for nearly 29 years.
Cadet Widrig has become Major Widri g, a CFI
and CAP check pilot. He works at Hugbes Aircraft
and his son is now a cadet.
This is one of life's interesting twists of fate. As
the saying goes, " What goes around, comes around."

Editor's Note: The aircraft profile articles written by 2Lt. Cude, were
created to help members of Tehachapi Composite Squadron 46 under-
stand the differences in the various member owned aircraft involved in
squadron activities. When asked to submit his series of articles, 2Lt.
Cude asked "which fi rst?" "Why your airplane of course" was the re-
ply. So here for your enjoyment is the flrst of the series.

Fun fl ying, the Grumman
American AAIB
(Drawing courtesy of the
American Yankee Association)
Grumman American AA1B-160
o wner/pilot 2Lt. Jim Gude
Registration N 1438R
Manufacturer: Grumman American Aircraft Corp.
Type: TR2, (AA 1 B)
Engine: Four cylinder, flat opposed, 320
cubic inch, 160 HP Lycoming
(0320)
Configuration: Low wing, fixed tricycle gear, single
engine, monoplane
approach speeds, and responsive controls, compound
the errors made by a basic student. Still , many swear
that you get a better pilot if he trains in the more de-
manding Grumman.
The aircraft , though fun to fly, begged for more
power. As an improvement, about half of the AA 1 se-
ries have been converted from their original 108 HP or
115 HP Lycoming, to a 150 HP or 160 HP Lycoming.
The result is a satisfying sport aircraft. Although out of
production, the aircraft can be purchased in a
remanufactured 150 HP form dubbed the Hyper Cat.
If you like driving a car like the Mazda Miata, you
will probably love the Grumman American AA I . De-
signed by Jim Bede, the early AAl was designed to be
a low cost, two seat, sport aircraft. Bede' s intent was to
build an aircraft that would satisfy experienced pilots,
but have an operating and purchase cost comparable to
a Cessna 150. The aircraft was intended to be a low
cost, fast, cross country scooter, that could do aerobat-
ics when the pilot was so inclined. The ai rcraft failed
its aerobatic certification mainly because of its poor
spin pelformance. In an attempt to convert the design
to a basic trainer, the AAJA was born. The major dif- N1438R, a 160 UP AAIB

Safety Seminar 21
is a Big Success
By ILt. Juan E. Tinnirello, CAP
Saturday, IS March 1997, Amelia Earhart Senior Squad-
ron 188 of the Civil Air Patrol sponsored their Safety Semi -
nar 21 in cooperation with the Department of Transportation,
Federal Aviation Administration.
Over 90 peopl e attended the event held at the Squadron
Headquarters, at the Oakland Airport North Fi eld. Capt.
John Matul a welcomed the participants and introduced lLt.
Juan Tinnirell o for a brief story about a CAP mi ssion regard-
ing a di stress signal from an ELT (Emergency Locator
Transmitter). Lt. Tinnirell o expl ained that a di stress signal
was received by one of the satellites orbiting the earth
Wednesday, 12 March, 1997, and the location was Holl ister.
The location kept changing and it was diffi cult to confirm. It
also transmitted both on 121.5 and 243.0 MHz. Finally Fri-
day, 14 March, it was stationary and the location was con-
firmed in the vicinity of Napa.
An aircraft from Reid Hill view Airport, Squadron 80,
and a ground team from Squadron 188 were di spatched to
locate the ELT and turn it off. The aircraft confirmed the lo-
cation north of Napa in the vicinity of Oakville Cross Road
between the Napa River and Conn Creek. The ELT was lo-
cated inside a box, under a stairway, in a winery's ware-
house. It has been shipped via UPS and sent to the pil ot of
the winery, from the repair stati on that install ed a new bat-
tery.
The moral to the story is . .. Do not ship an ELT in a
way that can be acti vated in transit.
The first speaker was Mike Jones, Oakland Tower Su-
pervisor. He mentioned that most pilots do a good job in
communi cating and compl ying with the tower requests. He
stressed that the most important item in communi cating is
making sure you understand the instruction given by the
tower controllers. It is much better and safer to tell "say
again" than to proceed to perform a maneuver that is totall y
wrong and can cause an accident. The next item he men-
ti oned was reporting in the initial contact. First, li sten for a
few seconds to insure the frequency is clear, then state your
call sign, position and destination. When reporting positi on
it is better to make reference to a ground location (Mormon
Templ e, Lake Chabot, etc.) rather than east of the airport
(777). Another very important item is to repeat taxi informa-
tion to include taxiway name and any "hold short of' in-
structions.
Mike provided abundant informati on about routing
from and around the airport, and how to request more direct
routes to go to your destinati on. His presentati on was excel-
lent, and generated many questi ons. He continued talking to
the peopl e during the intermission.

The next speaker was Marlene Larson, a controll er from
the Hayward Tower. Marlene al 0 stated that as a rule, the
majority of the pilots are very conscientious. One of the re-
quests she had was for pilots to be aware of the Oakland air-
space when departing Hayward. She mentioned that it is bet-
ter for the pilot to request all of their intentions at once, in-
stead of piecemeal. One other problem she mentioned is that
once the pilot has been cleared for take off, to execute the
clearance without delay. If for any reason the pilot needs
  o r ~ time, please state so immediately. She answered nu-
merous questions from the audience; her presentation was
excell ent and fi ll ed with safety suggestions.
The third speaker was Forest Keener, Quality Assurance
Specialist, from Bay Tracon. Forest provided very interest-
ing stati stics about Oakland Airport; it is the fifth in the na-
tion in traffic, ahead of San Francisco! Thi s was a surprise
pi ece of informati on, and the other one is that Bay Tracon
will be combined with Monterey, Stockton and Sacramento
approach in a brand new state of the art installation in the
Sacramento area in the next five years.
He also showed the best way to request Bay Tours, and
what routing not to request, because it goes against the flow
of landing aircraft to SFO.
Forest answered a score of questions from the audience,
most of them to do with crossing the Bay from the northwest
or the southeast. He provided a wealth of information and
invited all the participants to visit Bay Tracon in the future.
Because of space requirements, not more than ten people at a
time can take a tour of the faci lity. The first ten people that
registered for the seminar also visited Bay Tracon. The large
audi ence gave all three speakers a good hand of applause for
their interesting and infornlative presentations.

Camarillo Airshow a Big Hit
By Lt. Joseph A. Onesto
WHAT A SHOW! Ye , despite a cloudy Saturday,
the Camarillo Airport "Fathers Day" Airshow got un-
derway with a great deal of help from the Cadets of the
Civil Air Pat rol. The airshow was sponsored by The
Confederate Air Force, and The Experimental Aircraft
Association. The stati c di spl ay included military and
civili an aircraft, with an intriguing lineup of homebuilt
aircraft, compl ete with reps to help answer the ques-
ti on of future aircraft builders. The EAA had its han-
gar open fo r the crowds, with a variety of aircraft parts,
books, and tools for sale, with just about anything else
needed to build an airplane. A shol1 walk would bring
you to the Confederate Air Force hangar, and their di s-
pl ay of vintage warbirds which awed the crowds. One
of the stars of the CAF, is "China Doll ," a beauti f ul C-
140, that o nce flew the dangerous Burma Hump
(across the Hima layas), to deliver suppl ies to U.S.
troops. And for the movie buffs , there was Cary
Grant ' s old Convair 440. There were two Lockheed

Constellations on display; one, a 121 C (Camar ill o
Connie), was just named " the official aircraft of the
City of Camarillo." The other, a 12 lT call ed by the
USAF, " Warning Star," was the first AWAC-type air-
craft to patrol U.S. kies. These aircraft are based at
Camarillo Airport, and in beautif ul fl ying conditi on.
Civil Air Patrol Cadets were seen everywhere,
stand ing security at all gates, directing traffic into and
out of the airport, and keeping with CAP tradition of
safety, patrolling and keeping the crowds off the ai r-
craft taxi ways.
The sun came out bright and early on Sunday, to
give every fat her at the airport a great Father' Day.
The kies were clear, the aircraft flew. The Pt. Mugu
Navy Flying Club wa selling ride in theirT-34, and a
beautiful "Red Waco" and Cessna 206 were doing the
same. The ultrali ghts were out in fo rce and ho lding
thei r own in the ride-selling category.
The food and beverage booths were plentiful , with
just about anything your palate desired. As the day
ended Sunday, and the un moved toward its destina-
tion on the horizon, the cadet were very visible, polic-
ing and picking up the trash left behind. Camarillo Air-
port was spic and span and ready fo r Monday morning
operations. To all Cadets, well done! 'f,. (

California CAP Plays a Major Role in
L.A. Emergency Preparedness Fair
CAP Seniors and Cadets turned out last April for
a three-day fair designed to acquaint the public with
things everybody needs to know when disaster
strikes. The 1997 Emergency Preparedness Fair was
sponsored by the City of Los Angeles and staged in
the huge parking lot which serves the city's Zoo and
the famed Gene Autry Museum. California Wing,
CAP, was there by special invitation from the Los
Angeles Police Department.
Thousands of youngsters from L.A. School s
helped kick off the first day of the fair as they were
hosted by more than 100 organizations showing off
their public preparedness specialties. Helicopters
from LAPD, the L.A. County Sheriff, the Coast
Guard, and the National Guard provided dramatic
up-close looks during "Kids Day" on April 11 , and
on subsequent days.
Among the other events during the three days
were search-and-rescue demonstrations, simulated
high line rescues and acres of police and fire appara-
tus. A Civil Air Patrol booth, manned mostly by ca-
dets, formed the centerpiece of CAP partici pation.

some new animal friends. -c(

Welcome to our mid-
year edition of Eagle
Call. In previous editions
of thi s article I have dis-
cussed with you some of
my views on the Com-
mand structure of Cali-
fornia Wing and how I
have changed it. T also
di sc ussed with you my
* * From The Commander
Flight Release Proce-
dures. The third was an
introduction to Ri sk Man-
agement and the fourth
was a complete review of
our previous accidents.
The slide presentation put
together by Major Jan
Ostrat and Major Bill
Hadley is available to
By Col. Bryon Brammer
intent to use thi s column as a forum to get needed
information directly to the members of California
Wing. As I write thi s article, we have just concluded
a memorial service for Lt. Col. Robert Wood. Bob
was a long-time member of Californi a Wing and hi s
pass ing will not go unnoticed. He was a big man,
with a very big heart. Thanks for hi s many years of
devoted service just doesn' t seem to be enough.
I am very pleased to report to you good news.
Our efforts to reverse a trend toward a poorer safety
record has been successful. Since my last article we
had one glider accident. Major damage was done to
the glider, but no one was injured. The fli ght review
board determined several factors were at the root of
the accident. The student pilot was directed to un-
dergo additional flight training in several areas. It
was also the first accident that we have had where no
violations of CAPR 60-1 were found. Congratula-
tions to you all. We have truly begun to improve our
safety record, but we cannot stop with these few suc-
cesses. We must continue to insure our compliance
with CAP regulations and procedures. We must
broaden our involvement with Ri sk Management.
We must continue to di scuss the root causes of our
accidents, keeping that information foremost in our
minds. We have just completed six months of Wing-
sponsored safety seminars that all aircrews have had
to go through. Beginning 1 September 1997, those
that have not gone through the safety review will not
be allowed to fly until they have done so. Thi s pro-
gram will be required once a year and can be held in
conjunction with an annual flight clinic. ES cards
will be modifi ed to contain a field that will indicate
whether or not you have completed the seminar and
the date you complete it. There are only four areas
that have to be presented to the members in order to
meet the compliance requirements of the directive.
The first and second is a review of CAPR 60-1 and
units that request it. Please take advantage of thi s
program and put it on at your unit on a regular basis.
It requires the Squadron to keep the local informa-
tion within the presentation up to date. The original
presentation will need to be returned to Wing in a
timely manner.
While search mi ssion activity has been down,
our CD operations have been up. By the close of
June, we had completed 810.7 hours of CD flying,
plus an additional 200 hours during the first two
weeks of July. At the present rate of participation,
we should complete nearly 2100 hours by the end of
thi s fiscal year. That is more than a 200 percent in-
crease over the total number of CD hours flown last
year.
In Training, we just completed the second
Commander's School s, graduating over 50 students
total between the two school s. We hope that all
Commanders will attend thi s school during the next
year or so. Our Cadet section is about to put on the
largest encampment in the hi story of Civil Air Pa-
trol. I encourage all Unit Commanders to join the
Group Commanders and myself at the graduation
ceremony to be held on Sunday, 17 August 1997 at
Camp San Luis Obi spo, the encampment site.
As you may know, we have once again experi-
enced fuel reimbursement problems. I have renewed
our efforts to try and get thi s problem resolved once
and for all. Several problems contribute to the delays
in you getting your fuel reimbursement in a timely
manner. The major reason deal s with the Form 108
itself. The requirement for submission to Wing by
the member within 14 days of the mi ssion is not be-
ing met by a farge number of our members and a few
MC's. As you mayor may not know, once the Form
108 reaches Wing it must be audited for errors and
verification of hours submitted for on the 108 with

the mi ss ion paperwork. A substanti al amount of er-
rors are found in the 108's submitted to Wing. Unit
need to insure that their members are filling out the
forms correctl y. Our Operations staff will insure that
the MC's get the ir paperwork in within the same
time frame. Sue, our Wing Secretary, has been di-
rected not to respond to phone call s or outside re-
quests for information while process ing mi ss ion re-
imbursements. Thi s requires her undivided attention
during the days that she is processing the Form
108's. These few steps will greatl y improve the turn-
around time of your reimbursements. We can' t fix
thi s problem without your help making sure each of
our members is submitting hi s paperwork correctl y.
By the end of July, a ll mi ss ions up to that date
should have been processed and fue l reimbursement
received. If you still show mi ss ions unpaid, pl ease
contact the Wing Headquarter so that we can re-
earch your data.
Don ' t forget that our annual Wing Conference is
coming up the 5-7 of September in Sunnyvale, Cali-
fo rni a. Pl ease get your reservations in early. Thi s
would really help u out. Our National Board Meet-
ing was held in Las Vegas on 10-13 of August at the
MGM Grand Hote l. Next year 's Pacific Region
Conference will be held in Anchorage, Alaska, dur-
ing the beginning of May 1998, and last but not least
the Pacific Region Staff College will also be held in
La Vegas during the month of June.
There are so many other good things happening
that I will have to report to you in my next article.
Please continue to be safe, and I look forward to see-
ing you in Sunnyvale.

Tuskegee Airmen
By Capt. Bill Miller
Costa Mesa, CA - California Wing's Group 7 in
Southern California and Squadron 68 invited two of
the ori ginal Tuskegee Airmen to speak to assembled
cadets and members of several squadrons in addition
to many visitors.
In the interest of Aerospace Education, Major
Greg Frazier, Commander of Squadron 68 invited the
member of the first bl ack squadron to speak. Approx i-
mately 150 persons attended the one-hour speaking
engagement, held in Costa Mesa.
Former pilots William Elli s and Oliver Goodall ,
now of Los Angele presented thei r experience. Dur-
ing thi s era, black soldiers were just as di scriminated
against as were bl ack civili ans. At the beginning of
WW II, there were very few black officers and none
were being trained as pilots. Until Congress passed a
new law authori zi ng their training, there was no oppor-
tunity for them to show their leadership ski ll s.
After the first black pilots reached Europe, they es-
corted bombers and achieved great recognition for
downing 17 enemy fig hters whi le protecting our
bombers. Even the German pilots noted the skil ls of
these aviators and generall y would not attack the fight-
ers with the " red painted tail s."
"One thing we learned was never let some idiot
tell you what you can and cannot do for your own coun-
try," Mr. Elli s said. "You don ' t know what the future
holds, but you hold the future." ~  
March Cadet
Awarded CAP Bronze
Medal of Valor
Civi l Air Patrol Cadet Second Lieutenant Cory
Byron was awarded the Bronze Medal of Valor on
March 17 at the March Field Squadron 45 Awards
Ni ght. Cali fornia Wing Commander, Col. Bryon
Brammer, presented the medal to Cadet Byron who
saved the life of a three-year-old gi rl at the Redlands
Air Show last June. The toddler bolted in front of a
taxiing aircraft. Byron overtook the chi ld and scooped
her up before she could run into the aircraft's turn ing
propell er. " Cadet Byron acted swiftly to do what
needed to be done in the situation, putting the small
girl 's safety ahead of hi s own," said Bryon's squadron
commander, Capt. R. Scott Hodgins, who call ed it a
" heroic and un elfi h action that averted a potential
tragedy." The Bronze Medal of Valor is the second
hi ghest award a Civi l Air Patrol member can earn.
Byron was also awarded a cert ifi cate for outstanding
performance as deputy cadet flight commander of the
quadron and was named staff member of the year. -t(

By Major Nancy Brady
This could also be titled a well-deserved honor. In Civil

the California Wing Director of Public Affairs in 1996. He
brought with him many years of experience of working in the
news medi a. Thi s experience has helped to expand the public
affairs program in Cali fornia Wing.
It was hi s hard work that helped to bring back a newsletter
to California Wing. He also serves as the editor of Eagle Call.
Throughout the year, he ass ists hi s staff and other public affairs
officers in holding workshops and seminars. He also serves
shifts as a public affairs duty officer.
As if all of thi s does not keep him busy enough, he some-
how finds the time to work on a book he is writing about the

Basic Cadet School
By Lt. Col. Charles Wiest, CAP
Gill Robb Wilson Group 15 conducted its
biannual Basic Cadet School on the weekend
of 7-8-9 March at the Ontario Air National
Guard Station. Cadet Commander of the BCS
was Cadet Captain Shawna Hodgins of March
AFB Composite Squadron 45. Twenty-nine ca-
dets representing eight squadrons from Long
Beach Group 7, Gill Robb Wilson Group 15,
and Inland Empire Group 18 completed the in-
tensive training. A total of 48 students and staff
members participated in the school.
"The purpose of the Basic Cadet School,"
said Captain Gamila Mherian, the school com-
mander, " was to give each new cadet a thor-
ough understanding of the Cadet Program, and
to build a solid foundation upon which he can
base hi s CAP career."
The school's curriculum included Civil Air
Patrol hi story and organi zation, Civil Ai r Pa-
trol mi ssions, drill and ceremonies, custom and
courtesies, wear of the uni form, atti tude and
discipline, reporting procedures, and cadet ac-
tiviti es . Hi ghli ght of the weekend was a di s-
cussion of cadet responsibilities and the Cadet
Honor Code.
"The reall y good thing is that BCS has a
two-fold function," accordi ng to Captain Jim
Pint , Group 15 Cadet Programs Officer. "It
proved itself valuable not only for the basic ca-
dets, but for the staff as well. It was a good
learning experience all the way up to the com-
mander."
The graduation ceremony on Sunday after-
noon was attended by approximately 50 family
members and fri ends. Selected as Honor Cadet
for the school was Cadet Michael Fri by of
North Orange County Composite Squadron 56.
Honor Staff Member was C/Sgt. Sandra
Suderno of Los Angeles Cadet Squadron 138.
The Honor Flight was "A" Flight, commanded
by C/FO Cory Byron of March AFB Compos-
ite Squadron 45.
The Basic Cadet School , conducted at the
group level, is the first rung in California
Wing's Integrated Leadership Program, which
includes Cadet Noncommi ssioned Officers
School , Cadet Officers Bas ic Course and Ad-
vanced Cadet Staff Seminar. ~

WEARING ANOTHER HAT:
George Fischer in his dress whites
as a Command Master Chief, the
culmination of more than 42 years
in the U.S. Navy and Reserve.
By Maj. Wyn Selwyn
GEORGE FISCHER
(Lt. Col. CAP)
The word "dynamo" keeps running through
one' s mind when confronted by the likes of George
Fischer. He calls me to say he' s just back from the
Paris Air Show, and would I like to take a ride in the
Bonanza. Since I never tum down an offer to aviate,
I escape from revenue-producing toil and we meet at
the spacious house in Rosamond, where George and
Jan live with their herd of affectionate mongrels -
strays picked up beside runways over the years.
George is ex offi cio mayor of Rosamond
Skypark and manager of the desert airport. I find
that my ride will cost me. We are going on a horti-
cultural mission to George' s cabin in Big Bear, a
sortie which will test my weed-cutting skills. George
loads a wicked pair of pruning shears into his vener-
able BE-F35, 4248 Bravo, and we wing toward his
cabin in the sky to satisfy the weed police.
We land at Big Bear and sprint for the hourly
bus. The driver eyes George and the naked shears
nervously. Finally he stops and we get aboard, but
the man at the wheel is testy and refuses to take the
tendered five-dollar bill. We auction off the five-spot
to a grinning hippy for a dollar' s worth of change
and settle in for the ride up the hill.
You just never know what the flavor-of-the-day
will be with George. Last week it was a trip to the
harbor to scrape the barnacles off the bottom of his
61 Chris Craft. During that foray, George donned
SCUBA gear and disappeared into the harbor for an
hour while I watched his bubbles. You just never
know where George will light next. Ask him about
the bent Bonanza fuselage, which serves as a wood
in the uniform of a

box up at the cabin . .. but I'm getting ahead of my-
self.
George Fischer joined Civil Air Patrol back in
1961 and quickly became a mission pilot, flying a
J-4 Piper Cub out of Meadowlark Airport with
Group Seven. Since then he's flown more than 250
missions, thousands of SAR hours and has racked
up six "finds." One of his major finds was Janet
Berry, whom he married in 1948. They have three
grown children.
George's flying career actually goes back to
1944 when he enlisted in the Navy for combat air-
crew school and graduated as a mechanic and a gun-
ner on TBMs, the big torpedo bombers which Presi-
dent George Bush once flew. Fischer stayed in the
Navy reserve following the war, serving aboard car-
riers and as flight engineer on P2Vs where he accu-
mulated some 3,000 hours flying time. He has also
served as a crew member on TBFs, Twin Beechcraft
(Model 18), PBYs, C-9 (Soc) and P-3 (Orions).
Later he earned the rank of Command Master Chief,
serving at North Island and Point Mugu. He retired
from the Naval Reserve in 1987 with the rank of
E-9, tops for the enlisted ranks, after having served a
total of 42 Vz years of active and reserve time in the
U.S. Navy.
George ' s civilian aviation resume includes a
stint as a flight engineer aboard Pan American's
"Clipper" fleet and a maintenance supervisor for an
airline in Hawaii . But the lure of home was strong
and George returned to the Los Angeles area, where

he joined the Los Angeles City Fire Department.
There, he rose through the ranks to become a diving
instructor, winding up his career as a city fire inspec-
tor.
In his spare time, George picked up a Master 's
Degree in industrial arts and an architect's license.
He also designs buildings and carves Micronesian
"Tiki " gods for restaurant decorations. He and Jan
al 0 had time to carve out a second (or was it a
third?) career, with George instructing at Cal State
Long Beach and Jan teaching at Torrance High
School.
Always physical fitness advocates, George and
Jan have cross-country skied much of the western
U.S. and George has won three gold and two silver
medal s in the California Police and Fireman Winter
Olympics.
In 1969 George Fischer crossed hi s aviation
Rubicon, crashing hi s Bonanza on the snowy slopes
of Mt. Tom, west of Bishop. He was part of a vast
Civil Air Patrol search for a DC-3 "Gamblers ' Spe-
cial" which had di sappeared one night on a flight
from Hawthorne, Nevada to Burbank.
George was combing the slopes around Mt.
Whitney at 12,000 feet when a giant Sierra Wave
suddenly slammed the Beechcraft onto the flank of a
mountain. The plane held together but George and
hi s two observers had a wild ride up over the crest of
the mountain and down into the valley below. The
battered airpl ane finally came to rest, minus its tail ,
on a frozen alpine lake. The three were banged up,
but their injuri es were not life-threatening. They
spent a frigid night in the crumpled plane (10 de-
grees below zero), and when it became apparent that
no one was earching for them (their flight plan had
been lost! ), George decided to make hi s way down
to Bi shop.
Leaving the others in the plane with plenty of
blankets and survival gear, Fischer used a piece of
the plane's broken windshield as a sled to propel
himself down the precipitous mountain slopes. He
made the trek suffering from a broken back and he
couldn ' t see out of hi s left eye, which had been in-
jured when hi s head smashed into the instrument
panel.
After many hours of walking, a rescue helicopter

(Photo by Maj. Wyn Selwyn)
spotted hi s tracks and landed near him. But before
he would allow himself to be rescued, George di-
rected the chopper to the broken Bonanza on the
lake, so the others could be picked up and flown to
Bishop. Only then did George allow himself to be
taken to the hospital. Fischer and the others spent a
month in the hospital while their spinal fractures
healed.
About that bent Bonanza fu selage behind
George 's cabin: That 's what 's left from the 1969
crash. George, who never throws anythjng away, had
the hulk hauled out of the high Sierra because he
needed a place to keep his winter firewood. It 's still
there, holding a goodly supply of fuel, and the cabin
is always warnl for George and Jan on their weekend
ski outings - warm and cozy like their long and
happy life together.
Where else but in Civi l Air Patrol could you
meet such amazing people?

got a chance to get " up close and personal" with the
fabled B-2 Bomber at Edwards Air Force Base as they
visited the bomber's home base in May. Members of Ca-
det Squadron 15 were treated to an entire day by the Air
Force, touring the sprawling base in the desert. The tour
included a hefty Air Force lunch in one of the base mess
halls. Afterward they listened in rapt attention as a B-2
bomber pilot shared with them how it is to fly one of the
Mach 4 machines. "It looks different, but flies about like
any other high performance airplane," the pilot told the
cadets.
The squadron, one of California's largest and most
active cadet contingents, also got a chance to tour the B-2
tracking center at Edwards and hear actual conversa-
tions between the pilots and ground controllers. The tour
was set up with Air Force officials by Squadron 15 Public

Van Nuys Pilots Hear From CAp, Coast Guard
Search Veterans at FAA Safety Seminar
By Major Wyn Selwyn
What do conscientious pilots do on a Saturday
morning? They go to chool. That' s what about
forty airmen did at the big Van Vuys Airshow on
July 19
1h
• The event was a special FAA "Wings"
seminar, set up by California Wing Department of
Public Affairs and Wing safety officers.
A high point of the morning briefing at
AV80R Aviation was a presentation by Coast
Guard Auxiliary Commander Orner Bilge, who
flies a Cessna 310 for the Auxiliary. Bilge, who
has accumulated hundreds of hours plying
California' s coastal waters, explained the techni-
cal points of ditching an aircraft during an emer-
gency.
The other presenters included CAP Col.
Angelo Porco (former California Wing Com-
mander) , Lt. Col. Harold Knowles, (Sq. 195 Com-
mander) , and Maj. Wyn Selwyn, CFII and FAA
Safety Counselor. Porco explained how pilot
mind-set can cause problems because of inflexible
thinking. Knowles di scussed Emergency Locator
Tran mitters and how they work (or don ' t work).
Selwyn discussed the realities of emergencies and
how the pilot-in-command of an aircraft often has
only his own resources to resolve certain emer-
genCIes.
The Safety Seminar was sponsored by Flight/
Ground Instructor Richard Mend.  
EMERGENCY LOCATOR TRANSMITTER LORE-
Lt. Col. Hal Knowles discusses the ins and outs of ELT op-
eration and how the Civil Air Patrol searches for airmen in
distress.
SATURDAY'S PILOTS - Pilots at Van Nuys Airport spend

LAST FLIGHT
By Major Nancy Brady
This has been a year of great loss for the California
Wing. Four of our beloved colleagues left us this year,
to take their last flight. In January Lt. Col. Betty
Decker passed away, leaving a large and unfillable gap
in our ranks.
Betty joined
Civil Air Patrol
back in 1963.
She worked for
many years in
Emergency Ser-
vices as Director
of ES, Mission
Coordinator and
Mission Control
Officer. She also
served as a
member of the
San Bernardino
County Sheriff's
Aero Sq uadron
for more than ten
years, attaining
the rank of Dep-
uty Commander.
IN LOVING MEMORY
Lt. Col. Betty Decker
Lt. Col. James "Votie" Goin of Bishop Squadron
66 remembered her with these words:
"All of the time I have been in CAP, Betty has been
the force in the Emergency Services Program. She was
a professional. It is hard for me to see the Emergency
Service Program without Lt. Col. Betty Decker. I for
one will miss her."
* * *
In March, friends and colleagues were shocked
and saddened by the pa ssi ng of Lt. Col. Vince
Carbone, a mentor of other pi lots and a fixture around
Group I for many years. Vince had been a musician
during his early career, playing tenor saxophone with
the Glenn Mill er Army Air Force Band in England,
France and Germany during World War II.
Later Vince became a personal manager for band
leader Tommy Dorsey. In recent years he managed big
name talent, including Eddy Arnold, Al Hirt, Hugo
Montenegro, Bobby Vinton, Frank Sinatra, Jr., plus co-
medians Bob Newhart and the Smothers Brothers.
But Vince's real love was hanging around Van
Nuys Airport on warm summer afternoons, talking
with other pilots. Vince Carbone was 74 years old
when he passed away at his Woodland Hills home. He
is survived by his wife of 42 years "Smitty," and sons
Michael and Steven. This vibrant man will be sorely
missed by all his CAP friends.
* * *
Special memorial services were held in Ontario for
Lt. Col. Robert S. Wood on July 12 by members of the
California Wing Staff, where Bob Wood was known
for his dedication to Civil Air Patrol. Interment was at
the Veterans' Memorial Cemetery, Riverside, Califor-
nia. He died at age 67 on July 2
nd
following a long ill-
ness. Bob was a native of the Los Angeles area. He
served in the Korean War and joined CAP in the mid-
fifties. Bob was a master ground-team leader with five
aircraft finds and several hundred ELT finds. He was
known throughout the wing for mentoring cadets who
wanted to advance in Emergency Services. Yosemite
21, Bob's radio call, will now be silent.
* * *
And word comes from San Diego that veteran en-
tertainer and longtime CAP member Rosalie Johnson
passed away on June 3
rd
following a long battle with
cancer. Rosalie was well known for her comedy rou-
tines which she perfected while entertaining troops
during World War II. In later life she appeared in many
movies and TV commercials, including one of the
"Ziplock" commercials.
During these tours she developed a fondness for
airplanes and after the war she earned her private pilot
license and joined Civil Air Patrol. For many years she
devoted much of her time to SAR activities around the
San Diego area. Rosalie Johnson was 88 when she
died, and she attributed her long life to a simple phi-
losophy: "I don't let anything bother me," she would
say. "I think that's what has helped me stay sharp all
these years."
* * *
Words To Live By
Last December, one of our own, Lt. Col. Dave R.
Hughes, was tragically killed in the crash of a Paris jet
at Orange County's John Wayne Airport. Don Griffith,
Chief Check Pilot for the wing, found the following in
Dave's fi le after the funeral. The lines are Dave's credo
... his last words to his fellow airmen - people he
cared about very much:
We should all bear one thing in mind when we talk
about a troop that rode one in. He called upon the sum
of all his knowLedge and made a judgment. He be-
lieved in it so strongly that he knowingLy bet his Life on
it. That he was mistaken in his judgment, is a tragedy,
not stupidity. Every supervisor and contemporary who
ever spoke to him had an opportunity to influence his
judgment, so a LittLe bit of all of us goes in with every
troop we Lose. - Author Unknown

PRE-FLIGHTING
THE SOUL
By Chaplain, Major, Whit Woodard, CAp, Group 25
Chaplain, Major Whit Woodard,
CAP, Group 2S
A significant portion of the recent flight safety
school was given to the importance of the pre-flight
inspection. All pilots know its value. In anticipation
of crises that may occur, fl yers are taught to care-
fully examine the integrity of the airplane and its
components. It was particularly interesting to note
the sugge tion that observers are also encouraged to
inspect the plane before takeoff. The wi sdom of thi s
procedure is evident. Should an incident occur that
challenges the integrity of the aircraft, it is often too
late to make corrections. There are fewer options
once the plane leaves the ground.
Life is a lot like that. We face challenges daily.
Often, we consider them routine and make adjust-
ments. From time to time, however, trial s confront
us that send us for a loop, causing us to dive into a
valley of despair. We never know when they may oc-
cur, but we know they are a common part of life.
Like a wind shear, they can prope l us into the
ground with sometime deadly force.
Wouldn ' t it be a good idea to prepare for such
eventualities? A sort of pre-flighting for the soul ?
56
There is seldom a prescribed and practiced proce-
dure for life's cri ses. We never know just what kind
of emergency we may face. In those hours, we must
be able to depend on spiritual airfoils that can lift us
over the danger. Faith, hope, love, to name a few.
The problem is that we often wait until the onset of a
cri sis to think about such qualities. God has pro-
vided us with all the tool s, but what good are they if
we are not practiced in their use?
Maybe it 's time to do a ramp check; to give some
thought to moral and spiritual values. It 's never too
soon to do a pre-flight of another kind. On the
flightline , an observer may be able to point out an
area for concern the pilot overlooked. Your chaplain
may be useful in the same way. Don ' t wait until the
onset of a trial. It' s much more difficult then and
there are fewer options. Flying by the seat of your
pants is bad advice in aviation and in affliction. The
Bible instructs us to examine ourselves to see if we
have faith. Before taking off on life's ventures, why
not talk with your chaplain or clergyman and do a
pre-flight of the Soul?
