CC-CAP SQUADRON SOUND OFF!!!
By Major Joe Ely Carrales, CAP Dear CAP Fellows, I am pleased to announce that we have reached a point in our aviation program where it will be possible to have an aircraft rotated in for a week to ten days. I spoke with Lt Col Eddy Billman, Commander of Group V on Friday, 28 September 2007 and he indicated that our unit had the necessary staff and other criteria in place to warrant such actions. This is good news, however, it will mean we need to be ready for that. This means carefully selecting a week where we can make the most flying possible. Lt Col Billman expressed that he wanted to avoid a situation where the CAP aircraft merely sits idle in Robstown, Texas. Additionally, such a move sends ripples through our Squadron clear to Kingsville. It mean there is ample time for Cadet O-Flights and CAP Form 5 check rides. Last month Capt D. Bazemore and 1st Lt Lunceford qualified as cadet O-Pilots. This means great things for our cadet Aerospace Education. For CAP Flying Officers, it means being “on call” for missions or incase the aircraft is needed in support of a greater mission. These issues will be discussed in detail in our meetings. For Cadet Programs, we are allocating an unique meeting site for Cadets to meet on Tuesday nights. There will be more on this as details present themselves. I do not wish to announce these plans until they are final. Also, I have ordered the Rocketry program for all our cadets. Lastly, we are starting the 4th Quarter of this year. We have done such monumental things in 2007. I will discuss this more in an article on page 6 of this almanac. We are so close to being able to live up to credo “Keep ‘em flying and keep the momentum going.” -SEMPER VIGILANS!

FALL HANGAR CLEAN UP
By Major Fidel Alvarado, CAP We Need volunteers to do a cleanup at our Hangar in Robstown. Plans are on for Saturday morning at 0900 hrs 6 Oct 2007. Keep in mind that your priority is your home life, all the available help will make it all go that much faster. We will need brooms, squeegees, an 8 ft. (A) frame ladder (I have ONE). At least 100 ft. of water hoses. (None there). Rags and some trash bags. We will need to take some disinfectant to apply on the concrete floor. I can take two hoses, a water pressure regulator, the 8 ft. ladder, the trash bags and disinfectant. We are looking for someone to volunteer the rest of the needed cleanup tools. 1

SHORT FIELD TAKEOFFS?! What’s up with that?
This week we’ll discuss the short field takeoff and maximum performance climb. You will perform this maneuver on your form 5 ride. Pay attention to this and you can compare the short-field takeoff to the soft-field takeoff in a future article. This is from the FAA Airplane Flying Handbook and the FAA Private Pilot Practical Standards.

Takeoffs and climbs from fields where the takeoff area is short or the available takeoff area is restricted by obstructions require that the pilot operate the airplane at the limit of its takeoff performance capabilities. To depart from such an area safely, the pilot must exercise positive and precise control of airplane attitude and airspeed so that takeoff and climb performance results in the shortest ground roll and the steepest angle of climb. The achieved result should be consistent with the performance section of the FAA-approved Airplane Flight Manual and/or Pilot’s Operating Handbook (AFM/POH). In all cases, the power setting, flap setting, airspeed, and procedures prescribed by the airplane’s manufacturer should be followed. In order to accomplish a maximum performance takeoff safely, the pilot must have adequate knowledge in the use and effectiveness of the best angle-of-climb speed (VX) and the best rate-of-climb speed (VY) for the specific make and model of airplane being flown. The speed for VX is that which will result in the greatest gain in altitude for a given distance over the ground. It is usually slightly less than VY which provides the greatest gain in altitude per unit of time. The specific speeds to be used for a given airplane are stated in the FAA-approved AFM/POH. It should be emphasized that in some airplanes, a deviation of 5 knots from the recommended speed will result in a significant reduction in climb performance. Therefore, precise control of airspeed has an important bearing on the successful execution as well as the safety of the maneuver. TAKEOFF ROLL Taking off from a short field requires the takeoff to be started from the very beginning of the takeoff area. At this point, the airplane is aligned with the intended takeoff path. If the airplane manufacturer recommends the use of flaps, they should be extended the proper amount before starting the takeoff roll. This permits the pilot to give full attention to the proper technique and the airplane’s performance throughout the takeoff. Some authorities prefer to hold the brakes until the maximum obtainable engine r.p.m. is achieved before allowing the airplane to begin its takeoff run. However, it has not been established that this procedure will result in a shorter takeoff run in all light single-engine airplanes. Takeoff power should be applied smoothly and continuously—without hesitation—to accelerate the airplane as rapidly as possible. The airplane should be allowed to roll with its full weight on the main wheels and accelerated to the lift-off speed. As the takeoff roll progresses, the airplane’s pitch attitude and angle of attack should be adjusted to that which results in the minimum amount of drag and the quickest acceleration. In nose wheel-type airplanes, this will involve little use of the elevator control, since the airplane is already in a low drag attitude. LIFT-OFF Approaching best angle-of-climb speed (VX), the airplane should be smoothly and firmly lifted off, or rotated, by applying back-elevator pressure to an attitude that will result in the best angle-of-climb airspeed (VX). Since the airplane will accelerate more rapidly after lift-off, additional back-elevator pressure becomes necessary to hold a constant airspeed. After becoming airborne, a wings level climb should be maintained at VX until obstacles have been cleared or, if no obstacles are involved, until an altitude of at least 50 feet above the takeoff surface is attained. Thereafter, the pitch attitude may be lowered slightly, and the climb continued at best rate-of-climb speed (VY) until reaching a safe maneuvering altitude. Remember that an attempt to pull the airplane off the ground prematurely, or to climb too steeply, may cause the airplane to settle back to the runway or into the obstacles. Even if the airplane remains airborne, the initial climb will remain flat and climb performance/obstacle clearance ability seriously degraded until best angle-of-climb airspeed (VX) is achieved. The objective is to rotate to the appropriate pitch attitude at (or near) best angle-of-climb airspeed. It should be remembered, however, that some airplanes will have a natural tendency to lift off well before reaching VX. In these airplanes, it may be necessary to allow the airplane to lift off in ground effect and then reduce pitch attitude to level until the airplane accelerates to best angle-of-climb airspeed with the wheels just clear of the runway surface. This method is preferable to forcing the airplane to remain on the ground with forward-elevator pressure until best angle-of-climb speed is attained. Holding the airplane on the ground unnecessarily puts excessive pressure on the nose wheel, may result in “wheelbarrowing,” and will hinder both acceleration and overall airplane performance.

Continued from page 3 INITIAL CLIMB On short-field takeoffs, the landing gear and flaps should remain in takeoff position until clear of obstacles (or as recommended by the manufacturer) and VY has been established. It is generally unwise for the pilot to be looking in the cockpit or reaching for landing gear and flap controls until obstacle clearance is assured. When the airplane is stabilized at VY, the gear (if equipped) and then the flaps should be retracted. It is usually advisable to raise the flaps in increments to avoid sudden loss of lift and settling of the airplane. Next, reduce the power to the normal climb setting or as recommended by the airplane manufacturer. Common errors in the performance of short-field takeoffs and maximum performance climbs are: • Failure to adequately clear the area. • Failure to utilize all available runway/takeoff area. • Failure to have the airplane properly trimmed prior to takeoff. • Premature lift-off resulting in high drag. • Holding the airplane on the ground unnecessarily with excessive forward-elevator pressure. • Inadequate rotation resulting in excessive speed after lift-off. • Inability to attain/maintain best angle-of-climb airspeed. • Fixation on the airspeed indicator during initial climb. • Premature retraction of landing gear and/or wing flaps. TASK: SHORT-FIELD TAKEOFF AND MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE CLIMB REFERENCES: FAA-H-8083-3; POH/AFM. Objective. To determine that the applicant: 1. Exhibits knowledge of the elements related to a short-field takeoff and maximum performance climb. 2. Positions the flight controls for the existing wind conditions; sets the flaps as recommended. 3. Clears the area; taxies into takeoff position utilizing maximum available takeoff area and aligns the airplane on the runway centerline. 4. Applies brakes (if appropriate), while advancing the throttle smoothly to takeoff power. 5. Lifts off at the recommended airspeed, and accelerates to the recommended obstacle clearance airspeed or VX. 6. Establishes a pitch attitude that will maintain the recommended obstacle clearance airspeed, or VX,+10/-5 knots, until the obstacle is cleared, or until the airplane is 50 feet (20 meters) above the surface. 7. After clearing the obstacle, establishes the pitch attitude for VY, accelerates to VY, and maintains VY, +10/-5 knots, during the climb. 8. Retracts the landing gear, if appropriate, and flaps after clear of any obstacles or as recommended by manufacturer. 9. Maintains takeoff power and VY +10/-5 to a safe maneuvering altitude. 10. Maintains directional control and proper wind-drift correction throughout the takeoff and climb. 11. Completes the appropriate checklist. This is the procedure and acceptable minimal standard for completing this maneuver. Make sure to consult the appropriate Pilots Operating Handbook for the manufacturers procedure. -SEMPER VIGILANS “Auger In”-Behind the 8-Ball By Tedda (dedicated to Lt Col Barfoot)

A Letter from Capt D. Bazemore , CAP to the CC-CAP Unit Aviators
I am very pleased at the progress of the Corpus Christi Comp Squadron’s aviation program. Capt Bazemore is requesting information from the Unit’s fliers to plan training accordingly. This will mean realizing a long time dream for our unit. Please comply with his request. Major Carrales Aviators, Over the next few months we will be scheduling training to prepare each of you for your form 5 ride. What I need from each of you is your current flying status. Medical current, Flight Review, 3 Takeoffs and landing within the preceding 90 days in a single engine land airplane, form 5 online exam complete etc. Please e-mail me with your needs and I will develop a training schedule. Please let me know NLT 5 October. Attached is some information to prepared for the form 5 ride. Look it over and let me know if you think you will need some prep for some of the maneuvers. Thanks for the help. Dennis A. Bazemore CAPT CAP Stan/Eval Officer CC Comp. Sq.

Cadets...then and Now!
By Major Joe Ely Carrales, CAP In my quest to better understand CAP’s rich history, I have come across many photos that seems to tell a story. I wrote some of that story into a brief and yet vastly lacking history of CAP Uniforms. However, the story is more telling about the people. I am going to present some photos below that will show what cadets looked like in various decades of CAP existence. Some cadets went on to very good lives, others not so. But, we as CAP have an obligation to be there for them. Absolutely with out trying, I was able to find what must be archetypal CAP images from past sources that parallel what we do today.
1950s era cadets build a glider, 50 years later Cadet Nix and Villarreal learn about forces of flight in a similar manner.

Cadet uniforms have the same basic motif, the flight cap & shirts. Gone are the tie tucks and khakis of the 1940s and 1950s. B.F. Worden in a photo taken in 1948. C/Amn Bryce Nix in modern CAP uniform.

The Civil Air Patrol celebrated its 65th year along with our Squadron this year. We have a long and rich tradition. It is surely a good thing that our unit is seeing growth. We must be united in our efforts to bring CAP back to the Coastal Bend. I look forward to 2008 as we bring that to fruition. -Semper Vigilans 5

A REVIEW of 4th QUARTER GOALS
By Major Joe Ely Carrales, CAP Corpus Christi, Texas—At the end of 2006, after one heck of a Squadron Christmas Party (complete with Band and Local Celebrity) we sat down as a unit and carefully crafted the FUTURE. 2006 had been a year of rebuilding and retooling the Corpus Christi Comp Squadron; 2007 would have to be a year of reinforcement. With input from those present, that task was accomplished. We now stand at the threshold of the last Quarter of that YEAR of REINFORMCEMENT. Lots has been accomplished...from the growth of the unit into Kingsville, Texas...to the revitalization of our Unit’s aircrew manpower. And so, we task ourselves for this HOME STRETCH… Under the auspices of our aviators (Lt Col Barfoot, Major Alvarado, Capt Bazemore, Capt Pendergrast, 1st Lunceford, 1st Lt Hoelscher and 1st Lt Garmon) we must endeavor to augment our aviation by encouraging our pilots to participate in the FAA pilot proficiency (Wings Program.) In terms of Emergency Services aviation a goal of two Mission Scanners added to our number is ambitions albeit possible. In terms of CAP pilots we should qualify 3 Form 5 CAP Pilots. Training in this quarter is limited by the small number of DSARex activity; however, it is our goal to attend all FORTH QUARTER SARex Activity with in reasonable distance. The next such Wing Wide Activity is on 16 November 2007. This is in preparation for larger 2008 plans that involve being ready to host a Staging Area by 1 December 2007 in Corpus Christi, Robstown or Kingsville. CAP Ground assets, too, need to be augmented. In fact, aside from UDF team members the ES Ground resources are quite...underdeveloped. 2008 will see considerable building of Ground Operations, preparations for that will commence with the goals of adding 4 UDF qualified CAP Officers/Cadets. This is actually quite easy in that several cadets in Kingsville are currently in training, Cadets M. Beal, P. Lozano, S. Johnson and M. Bedynek have begun UDF training. In fact, C/Amn B. Nix is awaiting GROUP APPROVAL as this is being written. To that efforts, addition of 2 GT3 members will be possible provided encampment cadets attend the Ground Search and Rescue School to be held in Brownsville, Texas during the Winter. Of incredible note, the most ambitious goal, BY FAR, will be the tasking of recruiting Cadets in Corpus Christi to equal 10 by Christmas 2007. Efforts at TAFT, Texas and recent additions to the Unit should make that possible. Communications is a key area for the overall 2008 goal of hosting staging areas, thus efforts will have to be doubled this quarter to insure that we can “pull it off” when the time comes. We will have to refine communication drills to test the hardware and train the squadron on use of equipment and proper communication protocols. Being sharp on the radio and having a mobile “set up” is crucial to the operational effectiveness of the unit. We are fortunate, indeed, for the efforts of Capt Sandy Phelps in the area of Critical Incident Stress Management. This week, Capt Phelps will complete the last leg of training in that area and will likely be assigned to a CISM team. We will assist her in her training by helping her develop presentations to help fully bolster CISM in Southern Group V. Fellowship, being important to the smooth workings of a Composite Squadron, a proper Holiday Season/Christmas banquet will be planned. As with last year’s activity, there will be only two items on the Agenda...1) enjoy each other’s company and plan the Year for 2008.

C/Amn Steven Johnson, CAP, Represents CC-CAP at Veterans Summit
By Major Joe Ely Carrales, CAP Corpus Christi, Texas— It is my firm belief that Cadets develop strong leadership skills from “doing” rather than by merely reading their Leadership Laboratories alone. It is the goal of the CAP Cadet program to build strong leaders for tomorrow. Our unit in is blessed to have three such cadets in Corpus Christi proper, C/TSgt Christopher Villarreal, C/A1C Philip Lozano and C/Amn Steven Johnson. Cadet Villarreal has been instrumental as our ranking cadet and Cadet Lozano was recently recognized by General Richard Anderson and the Coastal Bend Chapter of the American Red Cross for his work in the recent floods. This article, however, will focus on C/Amn Steven Johnson’s recent representation of the Corpus Christi Comp Squadron at the Corpus Christi Veterans Summit and the plans it puts into effect. The activity was hosted by the City of Corpus Christi and Congressman Solomon P. Ortiz American Bank Center. The function was held to provide Veterans of the Coastal Bend a better understanding of all types of Veteran issues. The speakers included General Ricardo Sanchez and General Marc Cisneros. Amid the activity, dressed in a Civil Air Patrol service coat and ready to represent the unit was none other than C/Amn Steven Johnson. Cadet Johnson was able to speak with the local dignitaries and further the goals of the unit.

C/Amn Johnson speaks with Major General Marc Cisneros, USA (ret).

In a briefing Cadet Johnson made to the Corpus Christi Comp Squadron on 25 September 2007, the cadet informed the unit that he had exchanged contact information with the Generals as well as information regarding a future presentation to be made with veterans organizations in Taft, Texas. “They said I could make a presentation there anytime,” stated Cadet Johnson. Major Joe Ely Carrales and Major Fidel Alvarado have been exploring the possibility of creating an “effort” to establish CAP Activities in Taft. This will be followed up on in October and November. “The effort would be started by making a presentation,” said Major Carrales, “we would then ask them to provide three persons of interest that might wish to lead the cadet program in that area. This would be coupled with five Taft Area cadets that would serve as a nucleus of the new unit.”

The Cadets of Corpus Christi would begin this training. Cadet Johnson’s contacts will also serve to further those efforts.
