In the interim, practice flying ATTI mode. get comfortable with it. The Air Force wants to make sure if you are in a the middle of a mission, and you were to lose GPS signal, that you could safely fly and land the drone without damage to people or property. All normal missions would be flown in GPS mode of course. Itís a demonstration of skill level, in order to be a sUAS mission pilot.

I don't even think the Mavic 2 even has an option to switch into ATTI mode; I believe this only happens when GPS signal is lost.

A google search for my base came up with a Air Force web page describing how civilians can access the base.

As has been pointed out in messages about this and related issues, if the base / service / activity
chooses to make that info public, fine.  Let them be the source, not CT or CAP.

General knowledge is one thing, anything past what I wrote is another.

And an open forum is not the appropriate place to discuss base access procedures.

I disagree.   Civilian Access procedures are not OPSEC nor are they classified in anyway.

The RAP program, and CAP-USAF itself, has shrunk considerably in the last several years, and many of the contacts have probably changed.

With that said, PM sent.

Replied! Thank you.

The phone number went straight to an answering machine, each time I called without response. This is grouped with the initial post of, "having a hard time getting ahold of anyone via the numbers and email addresses found in the flyers/advertisements".

I've scoured the Internet to find all these numbers and email addresses you guys are posting... That is how I found this place. The chances of someone posting a link I have not already seen, will be low.

At this point, I am looking for someone that actually has a contact. Please, no more links.

Jaz: what state are you in? If you are in Great Lakes Liaison Region (Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, or Wisconsin), let me know and I can get you the contacts at CAP-USAF.

I live in Denver, Colorado. I'd like to stay local as I have traveled to drill for too many years in my career... It's gotten a bit old for me.

Thanks!

Most of your questions can be answered by viewing:
CAPR 35-5
CAPM 50-17
CAPM 60-1

All are on E-Services and the CAP Members webpage.

-Are flight officers officers?
Yes.

-If I transition to a SM with only the Wright Bros. award, what rank would I be?
Senior Member

-Are CAP members considered Airman, [just like Navy is sailor, Army is soldier, etc.]
No (except for an extremely narrow lane during 1AF missions).

- Can a cadet member transition to a SM and be a NCO without enlisting?
No

-How do SM NCOs promote?
Via either other-service equivalent promotion, some staff assignments, or CAP-PD.

-How do Senior Members Promote and how fast?
Via either other-service equivalent promotion, some staff assignments, or CAP-PD.
There is no such thing as "fast" per se.  There are service, PD, and TIG requirements just like with cadets.

-What what rank and requirements are required to make your own squadron?
Not applicable, that's not how units are seeded.

-How do cadets with squadrons on base get on base with no military ID?
CAP and USAF regs call for admittance to military facilities with a CAP ID.  Most also have local policies.
If you need to know, you'll know.

-Are squadron Commanders paid?
No.

I would like to hear that the NCSA ribbon for encampment was addressed
I'm friendly with the cadet, so I spoke w/ them about it today and it turns out that I was in the wrong about it and they had actually been to NESA. I had made an assumption because they had never mentioned going to NESA in our conversations before and they hadn't been in CAP for very long.

My bad  :-[




Well done. Issue closed.
Good advice here as usual from lord and hornet.

Wow...


Let me ask you some questions. What are you trying to get out of your CAP experience? What knowledge or skills do you have to pass on to cadets or use to contribute to the operation of a CAP squadron (because SMs are expected to be mentors and actually run the programs)?


If your goal is rank, prestige, and money, might I suggest your local recruiter.


If your goal is to give back to the program in a meaningful way, I would first ask you if you have used the cadet program to its fullest to better yourself prior to becoming a SM.


If you are considering becoming an adult member/mentor, you will be held to a much higher standard of self-reliance. For example, nearly every one of your questions can be answered by reading the appropriate regulation on the NHQ website. You also could take advantage of local resources by asking your chain of command.


I would strongly opine that you may greatly benefit from additional time as a cadet. There are many lessons to learn before you are ready to lead others.


Good luck.

-How do cadets with squadrons on base get on base with no military ID?

This is a big problem in places where base restrictions are in place (which is most everywhere). If you have a squadron in mind you should ask them. Here locally they were transported on base from the visitors center by someone with an ID.

It is up to what the Base Commander wants, it's their call.
