Thank you for your (lenghty) replies ; I know they took some time and I appreciate your effort.

I am not a CFI, so it was not me that I was inquiring about.

One person turned down was an active duty USAF LtCol who was a USAF Instructor Pilot.  Another was a civilian pilot with over 6,000 hrs PIC and 1200 hours instructing.  The LtCol was told CAP didn't need his talent.

I am going to research 70-1 and verify that the number can be arbitrarily controlled.

I have never been in an organization where we had too much talent.

He might be an Air Force Instructor Pilot, but what is his FAA rating? That's the one that counts.

In the immortal words of Michael Corleone in The Godfather, "It isn't personal, it's strictly business."

When the instructor allows emotion to enter into it, yelling or demeaning the under-performing cadet, it is no longer teaching, it is approaching, at the very least, a boundary violation in the area of emotional abuse.

It is not only prohibited, it is also counter-productive. Fear is not an effective teaching tool.

 As Ned said, encampment needs to be highly structured ("regimented", to use his term) fostering self-discipline and teamwork among the student cadets, as well as the staff -- senior and cadet.

In my experience -- and I helped run wing encampments for about 10 years -- there are two keys:

1) the attitude of the encampment commander and key leaders

2) thorough advance training for staff, particularly those working directly with the cadet in-flight students.

I'd like to see some sort of visitation/evaluation of encampments by CAP National HQ and CAP-USAF. Right now
one problem is a lack of accountability, largely based on supposed "traditions", some created as recently as 2015!

Yes Bob, but the previous wing commander didn't and got the same results.

All I know is that when my wing commander approves the level V it is recorded immediately in e-services.

Does he also have region level rights?

I have had a chance to speak with the IDWG leadership, and it sounds like they have an outstanding encampment planned.  I would love to visit and see it, but I have a conflict with another CAP activity.

It appears that there was a miscommunication in their website and outreach materials, because all student cadets who meet the standards outlined in the 60-1 will be welcomed, including all cadets with disabilities that can be reasonably accommodated.  IDWG had set aspirational PT goals to help ensure that all cadets will succeed, but even cadets not meeting the aspirational goals will be welcome

I believe they will be updating their website and outreach materials to eliminate any confusion.

Ok, thank you Ned, that clears some things up.

MER Honor Guard Academy was my first NCSA last year and there were a few officers that immediately came from COS to HGA.
