Brig. Gen. Chuck Yeager, the first man to break the sound barrier, a WWII Ace and an aviation pioneer, has died. He was 97.

Yeager was born in West Virginia and joined the Army Air Corps as a mechanic. He was selected for flight training and by war's end he had shot down a dozen enemy aircraft in Europe. After the war, he became a United States Air Force test pilot.

In 1947, he broke the sound barrier and broke several different aviation speed and altitude records. He was deployed to the Korean War and the war in Vietnam as a fighter pilot.

He retired from the Air Force in 1975.

Pegasus Squadron Civil Air Patrol joins the nation in mourning the loss of an American son who was an aviation legend.

Can parents be in CAP?

Absolutely!

Some opportunities to share in the CAP experience are: Cadet Sponsor Member -- Just like any other youth organization, CAP relies on a cadet's family to support the program. Cadet parents, grandparents or legal guardians are eligible to join as a Cadet Sponsor. This membership requires the same FBI background screening process and cadet protection training as the active adult membership.

First-year dues are just $30 and renewals are only $20. As a parent sponsor, you'll be able ... to help chaperone the kids, ride or drive in the CAP vehicles, and otherwise help the other adult volunteer members. You will not be required to wear the Air Force-style uniform.

Senior Member -- If you are more interested in taking a leadership role in the Cadet Program, or want to participate in CAP's aerospace education and emergency services missions, you should join as a senior member. Talk with your child’s squadron commander about joining as a senior member. You will need to submit and complete a membership application, fingerprint card and complete an orientation course. Annual membership dues vary by state.

This past weekend two of our cadet and two senior staff participated in the Group III ALS Cadre Training Weekend at Fort Wolters. While a lot of fun was had, it was also a long weekend full of training. One of our flight sergeants found out how difficult and necessary Mess staff is, our advisor to the cadet commander is the curriculum and planning officer, our DCC is in charge of mentoring safety, and one of our senior members is a flight TO.

All four of us are definitely looking forward to the actual ALS and getting to see the students grow. #CivilAirPatrol #AirmenLeadershipSchool @ Fort Wolters

On this date in 2003, the space shuttle Columbia, while descending to land in Florida, broke apart over Texas, killing the seven astronauts aboard. The debris trail was visible on area Doppler radars for several hours. Radars send a beam of energy from the antenna, and measure the amount of time it takes for the energy to return once it hits a target. Similar to precipitation, the debris sent some of the energy back to the radar, and the larger objects showed up as a stronger intensity. https://www.nasa.gov/specials/dor2020/#columbia# NWS150

Our former Cadet Commander and current advisor to the Cadet Commander is getting to fulfill his dream of being a pilot! Way to go, C/Maj McDonald!

Cadet Lee McDonald, an 11th grade Air Force Junior ROTC cadet at Tivy High School has received a scholarship to attend an accredited aviation university to participate in a private pilot license training program in the summer of 2020. His training university will be identified shortly. Cadet McDonald is one of only 200 Air Force Junior ROTC cadets around the world to receive the scholarship from Headquarters Air Force Junior ROTC, Maxwell Air Force Base, Montgomery, Alabama. More than 2,575 cadets applied for one of the 200 scholarships. There are more than 125,000 high school students enrolled in Air Force Junior ROTC at almost 900 high schools in the U.S and overseas. The scholarship covers transportation, room and board, academics and flight hours required to potentially earn a private pilot license. The scholarship is valued at approximately $22,500. The Flight Academy Scholarship Program is Air Force-level initiative in collaboration with the commercial aviation industry to address the national civilian and military pilot shortage.
Those who participate in the program do not incur a military commitment to the Air Force or other branch of service, nor does completing the program guarantee acceptance into one of the military’s commissioning programs. The mission of Air Force Junior ROTC is to “develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community,” while instilling values of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility and sense of accomplishment. When looking to fill tomorrow’s career needs with the best candidates, AFJROTC is meeting those national needs!
