Happy Thanksgiving all.  Don't forget our members who are separated from their families this year.

To all my CAPTalk friends ... a joyous and happy Thanksgiving!

Whether you join with extended family ... keep it close with immediate family ... or, like me, just enjoy the day yourself, may it be the best one yet.

Jack
Happy Thanksgiving to you to Col and the rest of the crew in CAP Talk.

There is a lot of credibility lost on the "safety" argument when I can wear tennis shoes and fly in the blue polo combo... but if I wear a flight suit I have to be in leather boots.  As far as y comment about wear something that "looks like a boot" there are probably hundreds of selections out there that meet the requirements of CAP uniform regs

I don't see any credibility issues.  Maybe issues of judgement and situational awareness, but not safety.  There is no question that nomex and boots are "safer" should an off airport landing occur, or one on airport that ends badly.  If a pilot choses to wear polyester and plastic ... well enough said. 

About 21 years ago a CAP pilot took off on a "proficiency" flight in a R/W/B C182 wearing shoes, thin socks, and polyester slacks, flight suit, and jacket.  He encountered ice, made a textbook off airport landing (in snow) and survived about 24 hours ... rescue was delayed because of a spring blizzard.  Dress for the crash, potential post crash fire, and post landing environment.  While that accident was 'pre-GPS', a 406ELT & ADS/B wouldn't have made much difference.  Aircraft and ground teams don't do well in blizzard conditions.  "Be Prepared" is a good motto for CAP, as well as Boy Scouts.   https://app.ntsb.gov/pdfgenerator/ReportGeneratorFile.ashx?EventID=20001207X03205&AKey=1&RType=Final&IType=GA

Yes, several people I know have bought from them. Propper seems to work nicely.

My understanding is that both courses are nearly identical...

My understanding, from cadets that have attended both in the past, is that they are actually quite different as far as the philosophy behind how each one is presented. One is a little more hands on while the other is more observational, and for the life of me I can't remember which is which. So, my recommendation is, assuming you have the time in CAP left to do it, apply for and go to both; one this year and the other next year. Doing that will give you as full an exposure to pilot training as you're going to get without actually being in the Air Force.

I found it. The reason I'm asking is that the 39-1 says 1/2 inch above the tape, and does not mention the lettering, which I heard were important from someone.

You always measure from the top of the name tape/CAP tape, not the lettering. In this case it's 1/2" from the top of the name tape to the bottom of the ES patch.
