I've got everything but the 107 out of the way. I just need a few extra hours per week, if anyone can find them send them this way, thanks in advance

Until 11 May. Unless that gets extended, of course.

Its 4 weeks. I'm kind of guessing the number of people who will go out of 90-day currency in 4 weeks is not as many as we suspect. As for proficiency flying, well. Its 4 weeks.

Has there ever been a poll of the CAP Pilots to see how many fly airplanes other than the CAP ones, and maintain currency and proficiency outside of CAP? Are there that many whose only flying is the few hours here and there they get in CAP?

Quote from: culpeper on April 06, 2020, 10:09:30 pmThe Davis Award is not an option via Professional Awards module in eServices.  It shows he qualified in the squadron PD  report.  I can't find it anywhere in eServices to request it. 
It is the award for completion of Level 2. When level 2 is completed and recorded the Davis Award is then awarded.

Correct, from Membership Services...

"It should come automatically as long as the award shows in the member's record."

Welp, as of today's letter...

QuoteRoutine training, proficiency and flight evaluations must be postponed. Proficiency and flight evaluations will only be accomplished to meet established mission essential requirements. For example, if it is necessary to complete a short proficiency sortie immediately prior to a mission sortie to regain FAA passenger carrying requirements, that would be permissible.

Thus shutting the door on anything but "just-in-time" currency as minimally required.

Was in the CGAux for 5 years 1998-2003.  My experience was similar to what others have said.  Interaction with the active duty side was much better and more appreciated.  I had three boat stations, an Air Station and a group (now sector) HQ, plus a couple of cutters in my AOR, and worked with all of them at different times.  I was always able to find a way to get out and do patrols to try to prevent the SAR cases and other assists, marine events and other activities.

I enjoyed doing both, but life kinda got in the way and I decided that I couldn't continue to be active in both, and I had a lot more time invested in CAP.

What a coincidence!!!

Exactly. Was planned that way from the beginning.  The price of admission to the airplanes for a Senior is getting your PPL on your own. Same with sUAS, get your Part 107, on your own. Yes, everything in sUAS is deliberately patterned after the aircraft side. F5u, SQTR, F91u, etc.

Quote from: 1st Lt Thompson on April 07, 2020, 06:36:31 pmNoticed there are two new FEMA courses on the new SQTR's, something to knock out while on self isolation:

IS-3: Radiological Emergency Management - https://training.fema.gov/is/courseoverview.aspx?code=IS-3
IS-5.A: An Introduction to Hazardous Materials - https://training.fema.gov/is/courseoverview.aspx?code=IS-5.a

Not new. Have been on the SQTR since Fall of 2018.

Its a total of SIX  FEMA courses for sUAS. Plus getting the Part 107.  Its a heavy commitment getting all of that done in order to be a CAP sUAS Mission Pilot.  I have had many people interested in the program in our Wing, but once they see the list of things to do before they can actually fly ..... crickets. Only the dedicated work through it.

Gee, just like all the hoops you have to jump through to become a Mission Pilot.
What a coincidence!!!

Obviously though, if I don't wear my uniform (I have no need to as our virtual meetings are in civies) it doesn't matter at all to me, correct?
