Bennett Boosts CAP Cadets' Pilot Plans Through Advanced Flight Training Academy

Is there a familiar former Coastal cadet face in this photo? Flight academies are great experience and pathway for cadets to earn their feet off the ground to accomplishing goals in becoming a pilot.

While many adults hold fast to childhood vacation memories peppered with cartoon princesses and castles, camping trips, or ballpark hotdogs, Morgan Bennett had her eyes on the skies and her head in the clouds.“When I was little, Mom and Dad (Cindy and Ray Bennett) would always take us down to Pens...

Time to register for the 2022 Summer SCWG Encampment!

05/27/2022

This afternoon, cadets from NNCS, Coastal, and Langley squadrons met in Newport News to ride on an Army Chinook helicopter. But the ceiling just wouldn't lift and conditions weren't optimal for flights.

The SMs are thankful for another learning opportunity for our cadets; sometimes no matter how well you plan, things just don't work out.

But, we'll get it rescheduled soon and we're all looking forward to it!

Aerospace Education moment:

Did you experience some not so normal electrical activity including minor internet and cellular disruptions last night? Then what you witnessed and experienced was the effects of a geomagnetic storm from a coronal mass ejection from the sun. This phenomenon has been observed now for a few days from various space observation agencies, NASA, and NOAA as our sun has been going through some weather changes of its own producing these ejections. Often times these events are related to cyclic sun spot activity or erratic changes near the surface of the sun which could affect it’s wind currents. Various articles which can be found predict that this is only part of a series of potential activity which could be witnessed from observation devices or similarly display affects in our magnetosphere as observed last night. Though these events do not pose an immediate threat or danger to us here on the surface of the Earth, these solar ejections can damage the sensitive equipment aboard orbiting satellites and cause quality of life disruptions to services like internet accessibility, GPS and cellular service. Nonetheless, in higher latitude areas of the planet, geomagnetic storms can produce some of the best auroral light shows in the sky.

Thank you in advance for your support and helping to Honor our veterans!
Had a ton of fun at the 2017 Oceana Airshow! My summer intern, Christian, is also a Civil Air Patrol Cadet at the Coastal Composite Squadron with my daughter, Mary.

Christian demonstrated the robot he designed and built, that provides real-time tracking of fused CBRN sensor data from detection equipment, mounted on the robot. We were able to track the robot and all of its sensors, onsite from the ground station and simultaneously from remote locations.

As well as being a technological success, Christian's demonstration attracted the attention of potential new users of Blueforce technology, as well as potential new recruits for CAP. Way to go, Christian! Go Civil Air Patrol!

So glad to join this amazing unit! #095
Congrats Capt. Hewitt-Qualls on new Squad Commander. Also congrats to CMSgt Kandiyeli on Deputy Squad Command along with 1st Lt. Jonathan Rose on Honor Guard Commander. You guys earned it!
Funny thing is that I'm the most militaristic student in my school, doing faces everywhere, marching, and even teaching others how to do movements. "Attention! Right face! Salute! Arms down! Foward march! Left, left, left, left right left!"
