Last night during a hybrid in-person/virtual monthly all-hands meeting, Capt Rivas and 2d Lt Baldwin are seen here discussing the finer points of calling "Knock it off!" in any situation that anyone feels is unsafe. Monthly safety education is a critical part of our commitment to a Culture of Safety. Here's a good article on the topic from the USAF Safety Center: https://www.safety.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/862507/knock-it-off-knock-it-off/ ✔️

For this month's "5th Tuesday" Civil Air Patrol - Squadron 188 Oakland members gathered to make sure -- first and foremost -- that our trusty propane grill, in deep storage since before the pandemic, was still up to the task of providing the membership with the necessary nourishment required to keep a busy squadron running. We participated in the National HF radio net, taxied our assigned aircraft over to maintenance, and acted as net control for the local NorCal VHF radio net but mostly we enjoyed the company and camaraderie of each other on one of the longest nights of the year.

Our core values on display.

Hometown celebration planned for 100th anniversary of Bessie Coleman earning her wings — General Aviation News

Happy 100th!

"Part of Coleman’s aviation career brought her to Oakland, Calif. In 1923, she landed a job publicizing the Coast Tire and Rubber Company of Oakland and soon began appearing in the company’s newspaper ads." -- from https://www.oaklandairport.com/port-and-city-of-oakland-officials-dedicate-bessie-coleman-drive-at-oakland-international-airport/

The pilot's failure to properly secure the airplane before hand propping it, which resulted in the unmanned airplane moving and colliding with a fence.

Civil Air Patrol aircrew will conduct a test of their Airborne Public Address System (APAS) as part of the US National Weather Service Eureka California annual Tsunami Warning Communications Test. The test will be conducted with three CAP Aircraft from San Francisco Bay Group 2 and NorCal Group 5 - Civil Air Patrol
Civil Air Patrol will dispatch aircraft and crews from Concord and Santa Rosa to fly the Del Norte, Humboldt, and Mendocino counties coastline with the APAS system. A third aircraft will launch to act as a command and control platform for radio relays between the two broadcasting aircraft and the Virtual mission base.
Group 2 and California Wing have been a pioneer in the use of virtual mission bases through Microsoft Teams during Covid-19 and will utilize this platform during the exercise.
#nwcatsunamitest2021 #GoFlyCAP #CivilAirPatrol

The annual Tsunami Warning Communications Test in Del Norte, Humboldt, and Mendocino counties will be conducted on Wednesday, March 24th between 11 am and noon. The test will interrupt TV and radio broadcasts and turn on tsunami sirens in some areas. Additionally, local jurisdictions may test their reverse calling systems and the Civil Air Patrol will conduct a test of their airplane mounted broadcast system (weather depending). Be ready and remember, it’s only a test!
