...still in the packaging from ~10 years ago and was trying to remember if this was CAP Bookstore, CAPMart, or Hock Shop branding.

I'm only 13 years in, but this totally makes me feel dated...

Does CAP (or any CAP member) have an Ameri-King ELT installed?  If so it appears there's a speed bump in the road to happiness.  See the recently released FAA AD 2017-16-01 which is attached for your reading pleasure.

Thanks to those who actually helped the OP learn about the process for documenting and requesting appropriate approval for awards.


For those of you bickering about who can and can't fill out forms, I suggest you listen up: take your curmudgeonly nitpicking elsewhere.


If a cadet had come to me with even an attempt at properly filling out a CAPF 2A requesting an award, I'd have been pretty darn proud that the cadet looked into the process of awards approval, learned something, and took initiative. I'd not have chastised him or her for their initiative or for "doing someone else's job." (because we all know there are tons of volunteer senior members in squadrons around the country complaining and ultimately leaving CAP because someone else was helping them do their work and there wasn't enough for them to do)


Lastly, I've about had it with some of these types of derailment of legitimate discussions by members who came here for advice and insight. This happens far too often. I'm posting this publicly here rather than addressing individual members by PM because everybody needs to hear this: Knock. It. Off.  Some people are soon going to be invited to take their internetting elsewhere if this tone and direction of posting doesn't change.

I try to take care of every piece of paperwork the cadet side generates. As CDC I task the cadet staff with keeping up on stuff like service ribbons. They route them to me and I route them up from there.   They partner with the senior admin and personnel officer for assistance.


I drill into their heads that administration stuff like submitting awards is a huge part of how a leader takes care of their people.

This is exactly what I try to do as well.  If you are truly trying to teach cadets how to be leaders, some of that training must be about the admin side as well.

Guys

I just attached a scan of my logbook to eservices/Ops.Qual. and submitted with the Senior Observer field checked.  It went through within 24 hours!

It will take awhile to get my ribbon paperwork reissued and submitted; but at least I can now do it online.  Although the issue dates will look odd...being a recent reissue date all within a one month period ( I have no idea what the original issued dates were).

Eclipse....thanks for the referral.  The drive failed a few years ago and I had few options at that time. Now I keep everything on "armored" high capacity thumb drives...no moving parts to fail.

Thanks everyone!

Quote from: CAPR 20-1
Each unit commander should develop and post a unit organizational chart indicating the name and grade of the member filling each position. In smaller units, one person may fill more than one position; however, someone should be responsible for each task outlined in each position description so the entire unit is aware of who is responsible for which duties.
Emphasis mine.

Admin Officer is listed as a primary position in every one of the org charts, with Personnel Officer being optional. Awards come under the primary purview of the Personnel Officer (see below).

Quote from: CAPR 20-1
Personnel Officer

Manages and administers the CAP personnel program and associated administrative procedures to include:
Membership records and applications
Confidential screening (FBI fingerprint cards)
Organizational actions (charters, deactivations, etc.)
Appointments
Promotions and demotions
Awards and decorations
Duty assignments
Transfers
Retirements
Membership terminations
Uniforms
The personnel officer at all levels should be familiar with the Constitution and Bylaws, CAPP 200 and CAP directives in the 20, 35, and 39 series.

And we're done here, too.

Y'all need to start playing nice, IAW the Membership Code of Conduct. Bad-mouthing our leaders publicly certainly doesn't fit the expected professional behavior.

Click.

I haven't seen them because I like being able to ask questions. Maybe my training was a bit different - I needed to know basics for my initial solo, but much of the work with the books came post-solo as I was prepping for the check ride.

If her instructor doesn't really like ground school, then maybe you can find an alternative. An AGI at one of my flying clubs sometimes teaches a private pilot course at a nearby community college. (If IL-189 is near Chicago, maybe something like the College of DuPage would be interesting to check out.)

Also, if you're close to solo, a good CFI should tell you what to work on.  For example, mine said "Your landings are controlled, but they're on the hard side of acceptable. They're ok as long as I'm on board, but I don't want you to solo and have one of your harder landings without me in the plane." So we went up and drilled low-energy touchdowns, and I soloed after the next couple of sessions.

And don't stress about the number of flights. One of the instructors at a glider club I belong to didn't solo until flight 99. The number of dual flights you have prior to solo does not indicate anything about how good a pilot you will become.
