Many combine SLS & CLC into one weekend because it allows for maximizing the use of available
instructors and the two agendas can be lined up pretty nicely for openings, lunches, and certificates.

Hi Sky Hornet

That sounds very similar to what we do,  Our academies are held in May and October and run for a full weekend.   They do place a minimum on the number of registrants for each class and if they do not meet that number, they will cancel the class.  Thank you for your response.  I was just curious as to how many other Wings offer something like this.

Vanguard sells all the required items Name Tape, Civil Air Patrol tape, and the SM Grade with Velcro backing

He's a cadet, not a senior member.

But that said, Vanguard sells the cadet insignia on velcro for the fleece.

Don't over complicate the process by trying to work around it. It's easier, and likely cheaper, to just order everything in bulk from Vanguard than to screw around trying to create a DIY project.

We have OHWG Professional Development Training Weekends usually twice a year (April/May and September/October). In fact, ours is this upcoming weekend.

I am in the Louisiana wing and we are very fortunate to have the resource of a Wing Academy twice a year.  I was able to complete both SLS and CLC within 6 months of each other because of our academy.  I was curious to know if other wings offer Academies for their members.

Thank you
MG

Tarmac, as originally made, is no longer in use anywhere in the aviation arena, because of its lack of strength and durability. On the other side of the pond, the term migrated to refer to what we call asphalt (properly bituminous concrete). I got educated about tarmac by some Brits years ago.

Brits and Americans - two similar cultures separated by a common language.

And then there's the Australians and whatever they're speaking. And it sure isn't the Queen's English!

...came here for just this...!  Thanks for brightening my day!

SarDragon is, of course, correct.  The term Tarmac did migrate, and the two countries have long been separated by their language!  I think it was Winston Churchill who coined the phrase.  As for the Aussies..... >:D

You could make the argument that am Eagle Scout, or one on the Eagle Track, is more prepared to survive
in a wilderness environment then a Spaatz, since they have to have completed the Camping merit badge, and the Emergency Preparedness
badge might help, but a Spaatz need never go near the woods, or utter the words "SAR", but
on the average, most Scout camping is as much "glamping" as camping, and fully supervised
by parents.

Hey easy now, I am well prepared to survive in the wilderness as a Spaatz.  I have survived many a two star hotel......

I had a cadet get encampment credit for a Sea Cadets course, so I asked the question through the knowledgebase.  The reply I got:

"Completing a CAP encampment garners the CAP encampment ribbon. Completing an program that CAP/CP has determined to be equivalent satisfies the Mitchell Award’s encampment requirement but does not garner the CAP encampment ribbon."

Not going to lie, but that would actually be really weird to see a C/2ndLt+ without an encampment ribbon.

S/he can still get one. Just go.

At the “Cadet Flying Encampments” if days gone by (60’s-70’s) the instruction was largely contracted out to flight schools, especially at universities. Solo happened in whatever they operated, typically Cessna 150.

My experience included a Flying Encampment which required solo and a total of 15 hours to happen before attending, but there were 2/3 matching funds available for that. I soloed in a C-150 at a local school, at 6.5 hours dual. The license phase was at Oklahoma State University, where I got the Private certificate at 37.5 hours.

(I think those times are pretty much unheard of now days. But, for solo, I flew pretty much every day, from an uncontrolled field. For the license phase, we flew every weekday at least once per day, sometimes twice, over four weeks, so there was very little recapping and catching up to do at each lesson).
