We have a nice airport restaurant just 15 minutes away where you can park the plane literally 50 feet from the door. Its great for missions like this. Halfway between is a steam power plant and also nearby a hydro plant. First sortie shoots the power plant. Look at the files and evaluate them over wings or a burger. With laptop in tow could even upload if desired while eating dessert.

See what could be done better and plan for the hydro plant on the return sortie.

Make these things fun for the Mission crew. Nourishment and hydration is important between sorties.

Fun, maybe. To me, it seems eminently practical. I've been on a few SAREXs where it seemed like food, and a break from the grind for a time weren't really factored in. Yeah, we have missions, but the people need fuel and maintenance just like the rest of our equipment. The essentials of life don't stop because you're in a uniform, and on a mission.

Well, the Crew Duty Time clock doesn't stop running just because you want a burger. And running out of Crew Duty Day when you're off site will really not make you popular with Air Ops and the IC.

Exactly.  Don't try something like this at a SAREX. I wouldn't suggest it.

This is the kind of training we do "inter-squadron". On a lazy Saturday when there is no rush, no "Air Ops or IC".

Funny how folks always assume a SAREX or Wing training event.  Don't wait months for the next SAREX.  Think local. Get it done. (Assuming you have qualified people in your Squadron of course. Some don't.)

My money? CAP CERT is finally happening. Those tasks are certainly in the wheelhouse.

There's going to be A LOT of permanent Tech rated CP officers thanks to this one.

So, just a reminder for those Cadet Program Officers who do NOT have a master rating, as we are a little over two months out from October 1st.

You need to complete whichever level you are working towards by the EOD of 30 September 2018 for the 'Old' CAPP 216. As of 1 October 2018 you will need to meet the new requirements in CAPP 60-11. While a lot of it is similar, there are some changes to the requirements... which may or may not make it easier for you to complete.

A recent post mentioned having the high-bird qualification met the requirements for the air crew wings. I went looking to eServices to find the HRO qualification only to not find it, but come across a few that were new to me:

  • PODC - Point of Distribution Course
  • SFGC - Shelter Field Guide Course

I also noticed a couple of SAR planning course qualifications that I can't recall if they were in there before. At least I know what those are, but the above two are foreign to me. The SFGC seems to be a FEMA course on the when and how to open a community shelter during a disaster, something CAP is not involved in. The PODC also seems to be a FEMA course that is defined as "where the public goes to pick up emergency supplies following a disaster," which again is not something CAP currently does.

What's the point of creating these qualifications in eServices if we don't do this type of work? If it's a strategic direction our emergency services directorate is taking us, why not publish the vision, implementation plan, regulatory changes, and then create the qualification in eServices?

I guess the answer to my question is simply look at how CAPR 35-6 references a qualification to wear aircrew wings that doesn't exist yet...
