Quote from: capchiro on June 07, 2010, 12:56:51 pmIn my over 30 years of CAP experience, I have never heard CAP referred to as Crazy Ass Pilots. Considering our lack of pay, I think we are usually very professional. I do like how your buddy compared us to the Coast Guard, a well paid, dedicated, heroic bunch of full time men and ladies, and not to the CGAUX.. I think his comparison alone notes our level of professionalism.. If I had my druthers, I would rather the Coast Guard come for me than CAP because of their resources (plus, we don't have really cool para-rescue swimmers)..
Quote from: cachambliss on June 07, 2010, 04:23:32 pmGuys, The very first words I wrote were "This is not a blast towards CAP". Nor did I say I agreed (or not)( with what my friend had to say. OK, So what was my point? ---> Perceptions. Some people comment on how few people really know about the CAP and how much misunderstanding there is about the organization. There are others who view the CAP as a collection of quasi-military wannabes. There are other who percieve the CAP as Good Old Boy Clubs. My point was we need to do more to correct and beat back the negative perceptions.Hence my ending comments on professionalism.
