QuoteWell, there really is no need for CGAux air if CAP is doing its job. Well, I've advocated on the CG Aux board that CG Aux Air should be merged into CAP. There is no sense maintaining two separate national volunteer aviation organizations. But to be fair, especially along the coast the private airplanes they are using are more appropriate than CAP aircraft for extended overwater use.
Alabama Wing still continues to work with the Coast Guard and local LE by conducting Sundowner patrols along the Gulf Coast of Alabama. We even go after a few of the EPIRB's that are on the Intercoastal Waterway at the request of the CG.
