I frequently hear anecdotally about people who can't seem to fly in CAP planes due to "additional hoops" that they have to jump thru, or roadblocks placed in front of them before getting in the cockpit. Its just ... maddening.
It is, but to be fair, in some cases it's because expectations aren't set properly.
There are far too many places where "You ain't flyin' my
airplane until >I< check you out personally...", etc., but in a lot of cases it's also on the respective member
to make a second phone call or follow up on a voice mail, etc., which in today's universe seems a Rubicon for some people. These pilots are used to looking out the
window, seeing blue sky, and being in a rental wearing shorts 20 minutes later, that's never going to happen in a CAP paradigm, but an hour or two in a golf shirt
is more then a reasonable expectation nowadays, and it takes about 20 minutes to complete the sortie paperwork, again, too much for some people, even when the
guv'mint is paying the gas.
Now, back to the former issues, far too many unit ccs are unwilling or unable to press upstream when a nonsense answer comes down, because "I'm just here for
the kids and I don't want any trouble..."
Aircraft access issues are a top-down problem that "echelons above reality" have the data to intervene on but choose not to.
It doesn't take much effort to geo-plot your membership vs. the aircraft, and then cross-reference the ones with low hours to see
why you have issues, but there you go.
