  • In many communities, CAP is the only AF presence known.
  • - 110,000 hours flown annually - 1,112 vehicles includes 915 driven vehicles with the remaining 197 as travel trailers and glider trailers, - The accident rate for FY06 was 1.84 vs. the General Aviations of 6.83. - CAP has the largest emergency radio network in the country. Nationwide system comprised of short range VHF Land Mobile Radios, using more than 500 repeaters, and a medium to long range HF capability.  
  • For SAR missions always go direct to AFRC at the CAOC AFNSEP EPLOs can approve Immediate response is appropriate when necessary to: Save lives Prevent human suffering Mitigate great property damage under imminently serious conditions
  • CAP provided damage assessment photos, blood transport, …
  • In addition to the members providing on site assistance immediately following incidents, CAP can also provide assistance for months after a disaster and work with FEMA and the American Red Cross. Thousands of remain on standby for deployment from locations nationwide to serve in communities.
  • - Also want to point out quality of imagery CAP can provide
  • - 2006 Air Force Academy top Academic Cadet was a CAP cadet “ Investing in America’s Youth:  A Strategic Overview of the Cadet Program”
  • - Summer programs and opportunities abound
  • Career exploration is the hallmark of our National Cadet Special Activities! CAP is out there at your AF bases and out with Industry -- hands on.
  • Our Aerospace Education Members use CAP AE materials in the classroom, touching nearly 30,000 youth each year.
  • School Enrichment Program for middle and high school students has been in existence for about 10 years. SEP for grades 6-12 is the same as regular cadet squadrons except that the meetings are held either during school or as an after-school program. SEP is present in about 70 schools nationwide w/2,500 children taking part. Improved attendance, attitude and achievement are seen as the direct results of this program. This year, CAP began a test SEP program: K - 5 program; in 20 schools nationwide; 300 teachers and 7,000 students are participating. Kickoff held in Boaz, AL Oct 2007 K – 5 will not be “formal” cadet members of CAP this year. Their teachers will be CAP AE Members (teacher members). K – 5 will not progress in rank, nor will they be eligible for orientation flights or wear a uniform. K - 5 will wear a CAP t-shirt and will learn about character education, leadership development, aerospace education and physical fitness through 24 nationally standards-based lessons for each grade level. A community service project will be an additional requirement of K - 5 classes.
  • Currently has 634 chaplains. (AF=604 Active Duty + 350 AR and ANG) Provides assistance in the absence of wing chaplains. Performs military funerals, weddings, and counseling.
  • Volunteers providing professional support base wide Potential for additional base participation is promising New VSAF uniform provides distinctive and professional attire to volunteers Similar to US Coast Guard Model
  • More hours flown in Fossett search than in Katrina support
  • Air Force Association Allocating $22,500 for CAP education grants in ’08 Maxwell AFB chapter is sponsoring local SEP program Evergreen Aviation has partnered with CAP to offer host new National Cadet Activities for 2008 and 2009. AOPA has partnered to provide $10,000 in scholarships for Seniors and Cadets to achieve their private pilots license.
  • Think of NESA as “Red Flag” for CAP.
