Note to Commanders and DCC’s:  Supporting the Cadet Training Weekends (CTW) and Encampments are the single best on the job training opportunity for seniors and cadets who support the Cadet Program.   If you as a commander have not been able to support one of the CTW events I highly recommend you do – there is no finer weekend training program in the nation for the cadet program which includes seniors who support the program.

Operations/ES

Don’t forget to wash your airplane!  Aircraft should be washed often.  If you need supplies or instructions do not hesitate to contact the Director of Maintenance POC Lt. Col. Bill Shook or DO Capt. Brett Grooms.

 

The new Fiscal Year occurs this week.  Please do not operate the aircraft after 30 Sept until an announcement from the Director of Operations.  There is potential that a federal government shut-down could affect the insurance of the CAP assets, specifically aircraft.  We do not anticipate this but want to be sure we need to be sure.  Just check before you operate.
