Very strange...

Clicking on the Tarmac link gave me an error message, that it had malware in it.

Does the airport not have a parking lot? Or could you do opening formations on the tarmac in front of the terminal? How busy is the airport during your meeting times? My squadron meets at an airport and utilizes the tarmac for drill and one of the taxiways for pt testing. But it's not very busy during meeting hours.


A brief break from the original topic for an aerospace lesson. The word tarmac is cringeworthy to aviation professionals. See this link for more information. http://aerosavvy.com/aviation-terminology/

Word that was taught to me in the Marine Corps and the one we used talking with the AF regularly and yet no one corrected it then.

I don't recall the exact model, but at the 1985 ILWG Flight Encampment (yes, that was it was called) I free solo'd in a hot air balloon.

From FEMA:

Refreshed National Incident Management System Release

This year’s active hurricane and fire seasons highlight the importance of working together before, during, and after disasters of all types and sizes. NIMS provides a common, nationwide approach to enable the whole community to work together to manage all threats and hazards. 

Through an iterative process of engagement with stakeholders from across the nation, FEMA reviewed more than 3,000 comments to update NIMS guidance and incorporate the collective expertise and experience of the whole community.

Today, FEMA released the refreshed National Incident Management System (NIMS) to ensure that this important guidance continues to reflect the collective expertise of the whole community. NIMS applies to all incidents, regardless of cause, size, location, or complexity.

The refreshed NIMS:

Retains key concepts and principles of the 2004 and 2008 versions of NIMS;
Reflects and incorporates policy updates from lessons learned from exercises and real-world incidents and disasters;
Clarifies the processes and terminology for qualifying, certifying, and credentialing incident personnel, building a foundation for the development of a national qualification system;
Clarifies that NIMS is more than just the Incident Command System (ICS), and that it applies to all incident personnel, from the incident command post to the National Response Coordination Center;
Describes common functions and terminology for staff in Emergency Operations Centers (EOC), while remaining flexible to allow for differing missions, authorities, and resources of EOCs across the nation; and
Explains the relationship among ICS, EOCs, and senior leaders/policy groups.

You're the last ones around because you couldn't hook up! >:D

Strange......I never had a problem at the Kadena AB club being one of a very small detachment of Marines stationed there. We were the only Marines allowed in the AF clubs. I didn't go home by myself often.

When I went, I soloed in the 172R. I know that there were also a few P models (those seemed to be the most common) and a S model. I think the model just depends on the resources available to to the region/wing, although I have never seen a 182 or 206.

Apparently my public school education has not taught me how to count. I was just tidying up the loose ends on all the new members and realize that we have completely in processed 20 new members.

So if the young lady who is going to turn in her online application next week actually does so, our fall effort will have netted us 21 cadets.

Almost 30% better than I had hoped.

This week: seniors

We are up 40% in the last 90 days. :)

To anyone who has done this:

Have you had any legitimate success yet? I'm considering doing this for Group staff "jobs" that may be open.

We have added a number of cadets and at least one SM since starting this, two more applications today.

This is just one of many(open house, air shows, Young Eagles, Facebook, etc)  initiatives, but we are up in total census 40% in the last 90 days.
