CC-CAP SQUADRON SOUND OFF!!!
By Major Joe Ely Carrales, CAP Dear CAP Fellows,

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
As with all things...there is that certain series of events that adds another “level” to those good times. Most attribute it to the ubiquitous “Murphy” and his laws. We stand poised to go some of the most significant CAP activity in recent times; but there are obstacles. We are being given a great opportunity, the opportunity to protect and utilize a Civil Air Patrol Aviation asset; to fly cadets on OFlights locally and train locally in aircrew and other aviation tasks. However, Congressional Politics and the weather have other plans. Many often look at the work of Senators and Representatives (namely the latter who control funding for the US Government) as being conducted a distant place that makes little direct impact on our daily life. However, the recent stall in Congress en re the funding for the 2008 Fiscal Year means we cannot make full advantage of the aircraft in support of Cadet O-Flights. The latest news is that the 2008 budget will likely be approved in January 2008. Thus, the bulk of our cadets will have to wait until then. Fortunately, and I thank Lt Col Billman for this, there is limited money to fly some four cadets. There is little we can do about the weather other than to plan around it and emote the now famous motto of Lt Col “Chuck” Kowalewski, semper gumby (always flexible). I would like to thank Lt Col Barfoot, Major Fidel Alvarado, Capt Joe Pendergrast, Capt Dennis Bazemore and Capt Jerry Lunceford for the professional way they are implementing CAP aviation in our unit. Lt Col Barfoot has one an outstanding job in organizing our latest effort, our other pilots, including those training for the CAP Form 5, are to lauded for their efforts. Please stay tuned here for reports on our activity this THANKSGIVING WEEK. We have a long list of things in the works. Four of our cadets will fly and many pilots will take that step closer to their WINGS!!! ‘Tis a glorious time for our unit...join me in giving thanks for the opportunities that come our way, a strong CAP unit built by our membership and to the presence of close friends united in making their CAP unit something special.

STAN/EVAL Corner will be Back next week.

Until then… ENJOY a WEBSITE REVIEW from... Lt Col John Barfoot, CAP
A Review of SkyVector.com
With Lt Col John B. Barfoot, CAP Flight Operations Officer Corpus Christi Comp Squadron I recently checked out a website at www.skyvector.com. Although the number one goal of the website is to sell products such as Sectionals and other Charts it also has several free features that can assist a pilot in flight planning. When you first bring up the website there are two selections at the top, “Airports” and “Charts”. There is also a Sectional displayed. If you decide that you want to buy a Sectional or Chart you will be directed to Pilotmall.com where many products are listed. Airports. When you select “Airports” you get a list of all states including U.S. territories and the number of all airports, including private ones. By clicking on the “State” you get an alphabetical listing of each city with all airports listed next to the city. When you click on the airport you will get a short synopsis of each runway showing the surface type and condition. Be advised, this is not a substitute for checking NOTAMS. I noticed that there were runways in some states that I know are closed but are still listed with no remarks indicating that they are closed. Charts. When you select “Charts” you get a much more useful online tool for flight planning. There should be a Sectional Chart displayed when you first bring up the website. You can grab the chart and pan with your cursor or you can go to the “Chart” selection and pick either a Sectional by clicking on the U.S. map or you can look at Terminal Area Charts and Helicopter Route charts by clicking on the text to the right. When you select a Sectional Chart on the U.S. map to the left it will bring up that sectional. At the bottom right of the chart is a “zoom in/out” tool. Airports that have weather reporting stations will have a colored circle around them. If you pass your cursor over that circle it will display the weather forecast. Flight Planning. For flight planning you can use the Sectional Chart or either the Enroute Low or Enroute High Charts that are options at the top of the Sectional Chart. Simply click on the type of chart you want use depending upon whether you are filing VFR or IFR. Start with your departure point and click right on it. You may be given several options next to the word “plan”. Decide on whether you want to choose the airport or the navigational aid as your starting point. Click on the word “plan” to the left of your fix. This will start your flight plan. Go to your next point and click right on it. Again you may be given several options pertaining to which point you want to use. As you continue to build your flight plan it will appear at the right side of your screen along with a red line on the chart from point to point. Total distance will be given under your flight plan. As you advance along your route you may be required to select another chart. Your cursor will not automatically select the next chart but the name of the chart will automatically be listed at the top. Just click on it and it will appear. This is a useful tool for determining distances but is not fool proof and should only be used for initial flight planning. The bottom line. This is a website that I would use to quickly check distances during flight planning but I would refer directly to the charts in hand to verify the distances while filling out my fuel log and preparing my flight plan. I would also get current weather briefings from the local FSS weather briefer.

Group V Operations Officer Talks about FROs
By Lt Col Donald Chuck Kowalewski GROUP V— There is a change in the “paper flow” of the FRO reports (CAPF99s) and the Monthly Flight Reports (MFRs). Anyone who has ever had to reconcile those know the pain and agony that occurs each month. They frequently do not match, as the wing has noticed of late. Well, this has provoked a change in the way we report these forms. You are probably thinking, “I see where this is going… PLEASE don’t tell me that I have reconcile those things now.” No, I’m going to. At the request of the Wing DO, the group DOs (Directors of Operations) will manage these reports. However, that means I need all y’all to send the MFRs and 99s to me so that I can do it. Please don’t send them to Rand Woodward anymore – that will be my deadline. Of course, I really need you to get these to me on the 2nd so that I have time to do this task! If the MFRs don’t jive with the FRO reports, I’ll be sending them back for explanation. (So you probably want to check them over.) Remember, I need negative reports from your FROs, and if your FRO list has changed since last report – well, that too, obviously. Group 5 is not the “bad boy” on this reconciling issue, but for Rand to get a handle on all these reports, they needed to break them into the groups instead of receiving them from all over God’s Earth (aka Texas). So beginning next month, have your FROs send their reports to YOU (the DO or Sq/CC if you are “dual hatted”). YOU compare them to the MFR and send them to ME. Then, I will send them to Rand. It would be nice if you were prompt so that I can make the wing suspense. Please keep your FROs to a minimum, and of course, choose readily available peeps. (The Sq/CC, DO, and one other – often your CFII – is a good mix.)

New Regulations available for Commentary
CAPNHQ— The CAP powers that be at Maxwell A.F.B. announced 14 November 2007 that commentary on two important CAP regulation revisions is open to the general membership. This will allow for a grassroots treatment of these items. Please avail yourself of the opportunity to review these...either way they present a glimpse of what is to come via the CAP aviation and Communication programs. Below are the links and contact information for these regulations… http://level2.cap.gov/visitors/member_services/publications/publications_for_comment.cfm CAPR 60-1 Draft CAP Flight Management: The draft CAPR 60-1 update should be considered a stopgap measure until such time that CAP and CAP-USAF are able to finalize and publish a greatly shortened version of the regulation. The lengthy coordination process to shorten 60-1 is ongoing and the field will get the opportunity to comment on the future draft regulation in the coming months. Comments are request by 1 Dec 07, through your chain of command. POC: Mr. Pete Kalisky, NHQ CAP/DOV, pkalisky@cap.gov CAPR 100-1 Draft Communications Comments are requested by 1 Dec 07, through your chain of command.

Proposed CC-CAP Flight Schedule
By Lt Col J. Barfoot, CAP Corpus Christi Comp Squadron— Lt Col John Barfoot, CAP, our Flight Operations Officer, is currently handling the task of organizing the WEEK. The WEEK refers to the week of 18 November to 24 November 2007 where the Unit has been trusted with the local use of CAP Aviation assets. Please respond to Lt Col Barfoot at… lbullet@aol.com to provide him in your availability to fly this occasion. “This is my first effort to putting together a flight schedule for the CAP” says Lt Col Barfoot, “Please let me know if there are any problems. There are several sections here. I am working on a spreadsheet with a schedule on it. It has a lot of "unknowns" on it. Please let me know when you are available.” Transporting the a/c. Initially the plan was for Capt Lunceford and to pick up the airplane in VCT and fly it back to Kleberg Co (IKG) where he was to conduct some Cadet O flights on Saturday 17 November. However, weather put the kibosh on that and Capt Dennis Bazemore instead flew the aircraft to T.C. McCambell airport 18 November. Schedule. Lt Col Barfoot needs to know everybody's availability. This is what drives the schedule. Since Lt Col Barfoot, Capt Bazemore, Lt Garmon and SM Messenger live in the vicinity of T.P. McCampbell it makes sense to initially work out of T.P. McCampbell after some cadet O-flights if all of our schedules work out. Capt Bazemore will email Lt Col Barfoot of his work schedule for the WEEK. If we bring the a/c to T.P. McCampbell, Capt Bazemore and Lt Col Barfoot may do a Form 5 or Form 5 practice on Monday and then take it to Robstown if required/desired. Additionally, Capt Lunceford intends to fly O-Flights for Cadets at Kleberg on that Monday. We have not figured out the transport back yet but I am available both Sat and Sun, 24/25 Nov. Personnel who maybe ready to get training completed. Lt Col Barfoot will be ready to get a Form 5 and an IPC/BFR. He has completed his Form 5 test and has a Class 2 medical. He is making a continued study of CAPR 60-1 and the Wing attachment along with the PTS. SM Renee Velazquez needs to ensure that his MS training has been entered to indicate his Preparatory Training is complete. He completed BCUT and Level 1. Additionally, SM Velazquez completed his GES training on Saturday evening. SM Robin Schubauer had her Level 1 tests reviewed. She has also completed CPPT and OPSEC. She also needs a uniform. You can't fly without a uniform. Make sure you print out your 101 card after everything is completed. If you want we can complete the rest of her MS training this weekend. SM Rob Messenger. You need to finish your Form 5 test. Rob has the 21st off all day. FROs. Capt Lunsford, Capt Bazemore and Maj Carrales will be the FROs. Lt Col Kowalewski will also be available. Personal schedules. Please Lt Col Barfoot know what your schedule is, this will greatly help in planning.

CC-CAP 2007 Holiday Party Less than a Month Away
By Major Joe Ely Carrales, CAP Corpus Christi, Texas– One of the most important aspects of a CAP unit is to gather and enjoy each other’s company. CAP is about service, service is the glue that holds the unit together. No place is this more evident than at our annual Holiday gathering and Christmas Party. This year’s Party is under the direction of Unit Deputy Commander Major Fidel Alvarado, principal Project Officer. “Major Carrales has given me the privilege to find us a place to celebrate Christmas,” began Major Alvarado, “The place is the Longhorn Steak and Ale restaurant located at 4307 Alameda, that is very close to Robert St.” There appears to be seating for 60 chairs, and was the CAP place of choice in the 1990s. The date is set for 11 December 2007 from 6:30P.M. until closing time. There was no time limit. Major Alvarado reports that they have a nice grill (wood burning) and bar, also a fairly decent list of wines to select from. Initially the guest speaker was to be Mr. Bert Alvarez, however, Mr. Alvarez and his wife will be out of town and unable to attend. The Squadron will present him with a token of affection at a later date. Mr. Fred Segundo, the new director of operations at CRP international airport will be our guest speaker for the evening. It is hoped that the unit can impress him as well as ask him questions about his vision for the future of Operations at Corpus Christi International Airport. Address information and questions on the party to Major Fidel Alvarado Jr., CAP TX026, Deputy Commander Corpus Christi Composite Squadron Pho. (361) 2421234 and Cell (361) 739-6194

The 2006 Holiday Party saw the first CC-CAP Aircrew in over four years. Capt Joe Pendergrast, then 1st Lt Jerry Lunceford, then 2d Lt Mike Garmon and then 2d Lt John D. Hoelscher

Then Cadet Airman Philip Lozano reports to Major Joe Ely Carrales at the Silverado Smokehouse for the 2006 Holiday Party. Cadet Lozano is currently a candidate for the Wright Brother’s Award and a promotion to Cadet Staff Sergeant.

The CC-CAP Holiday Party is a recently resurrected Squadron Tradition. Last year’s party was held at the Silverado Smokehouse on Weber Drive in Corpus Christi Proper. The party is traditionally the official close of the units regular activities, however, training and public appearances are encouraged for the hiatus. The unit has grown in number as well as in ability. To the left are the members of the unit that attended. -SEMPER VIGILANS

BRAHMA CADET FLIGHT LOG
KINGSVILLE, TEXAS VOL 2 ISSUE 12 20 November 2007 “Tales of the Civil Air Patrol from the Heart of the Wild Horse Desert”

KINGSVILLE CADETS to SUPPORT Teachers at Memorial Middle School
By Major Joe Ely Carrales, CAP Kingsville, Texas—CAP Cadets from the Corpus Christi Comp Squadron’s Brahma Cadet Flight will support teachers in morning monitoring of the hall ways starting on 20 November 2007. “As a method to teach CAP Cadets their General Emergency Services materials, “said Major Joe Ely Carrales, CAP, “cadets will assist teachers in monitoring the hall ways. It will be a mock IC situation.” Teachers at Memorial Middle School currently “pull duty” at the front and back doors of Memorial Middle School. They provide a supervisory presence as well as to greet persons who enter the school. These professionals often find themselves without means to communicate with the schools Administration, who are stationed in the cafeteria and gym. CAP cadets will stand station with these teachers and serve in an assistance roll. Cadets will also set up a makeshift Command Center in the gym where information will be relayed to administrators. A Cadet Incident Commander will be appointed and work under the supervision of Major Joe Ely Carrales, CAP. If communications equipment is available, qualified Cadets will use them in support of the mission. Cadets have been briefed that their roll is not to serve as “law enforcement” or “security,” but rather to support the educators by running errands and relaying communications. Cadets will meet in the Memorial Middle School Library at 0745 hrs on Tuesday 20 November 2007. Uniform of the Day will be Service Dress. A promotion Ceremony will held for Cadets Bullard and Garza. -Semper Vigilans
