Operation CAPSafe
  • The CAP Interim National Commander, Brig Gen Amy Courter, CAP-USAF CC, Col Russ Hodgkins, myself, Col Lyle Letteer as the National Safety Officer, and NHQ are very concerned with safety being in the forefront of everyone’s mind. Whether they are volunteering for CAP or in their everyday lives we are looking to give each member a safety mindset that will carry them safely through their daily activities.

Operation CAPSafe
  • As such it is our intent to give every CAP member, cadet or officer, the tools to achieve the goal of a safety mindset.
  • We only ask that every CAP member look through these slides and participate in this once monthly activity.
operation capsafe8
Operation CAPSafe
  • What is Operation CAPSafe?
    • Have every CAP Officer and Cadet member send in one Safety idea a month for either Ground Safety, Air Safety, or both.
    • This is a way to have every Officer and Cadet member think of Safety at least once a month.
    • This will help to instill a Safety Mindset into every CAP member.

great quotations on flight
Great Quotations on Flight
  • Slipping the Surly Bonds
    • Author: Dave English
  • Not just for fliers
    • Most quotes apply equally well for a CAP member driving a 15 pax van
    • Or, your drive home tonight.
can t beat the laws of physics
Can’t beat the laws of physics
  • Flying is inherently dangerous. We like to gloss that over with cleaver rhetoric and comforting statistics, but the facts remain: gravity is constant and powerful, and speed kills. In combination, they are particularly destructive.
    • Dan Manningham, Business and Commercial Aviation magazine.
cessna s are forgiving
Cessna’s are forgiving...
  • The Cub is the safest airplane in the world: it can just barely Kill you
    • Max Stanley, Northrop test pilot
  • Airplanes may kill you but they ain’t likely to hurt you.
    • Leroy Robert, baseball player
  • Airplanes are near perfect: all they lack is the ability to forgive.
    • Richard Collins
an unforgiving nature
An unforgiving nature
  • Aviation in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect.
    • Anon, back to WWII

Luck
  • This thing we call luck is merely professionalism and attention to detail….. Luck is the sum total of your abilities as an aviator. If you think your luck is running low you’d better get busy and make some more. Work harder. Pay more attention. Study more. Do better preflights.
    • Stephen Coonts, The Intruders
complacency
Complacency
  • Nobody who gets damned relaxed builds up much flying time.
    • Ernest K Gann, advice from “a very old pelican of an aviator,” The Black Watch
  • Mix ignorance with Arrogance at low altitude and the results are almost guaranteed to be spectacular.
    • Bruce Landsberg, executive Director of AOPA Air Safety Foundation

CRM
  • God, look at that thing! That don’t seem right , does it?

That’s not right.

    • First Officer Roger Pettit, during takeoff roll, Air Florida Flight 90, Jan 13, 1982

CRM
  • Larry! We’re going down, Larry!
  • I know it.
    • First Officer Roger Pettit and Capt. Larry Wheaton, last words recorded before hitting the 13th St Bridge, Air Florida Flight 90, Jan 13, 1982
lessons learned
Lessons Learned???
  • There are no new types of aircrashes---only people with short memories. Every accident has its own forerunners, and every one happens either because someone did not know where to draw the vital line….or well-meaning people deemed the risk acceptable.
    • Stephen Barlay, The Final Call: Why Airline Disasters Continue to Happen
leadership
Leadership
  • Every accident, no matter how minor, is a failure of the organization.
    • Jerome Lederer
  • I’d hate to see an epitaph on a …pilot’s tombstone that says, “I told you I needed training….”
    • Col “Boots” Boothby, USAF
leadership21
Leadership
  • Corporate culture has a very real influence on the attitudes and performance of the people within an organization. There is no question in my mind that management decisions and actions, or more frequently, indecision's and inaction's cause accidents.
    • John Lauber, NTSB
leadership complacency
Leadership Complacency
  • Complacency or the false sense of security should not be allowed to develop as a result of long periods without an accident or serious incident. An organization with a good safety record is not necessarily a safe organization.
    • International Civil Aviation Organization
advice
Advice
  • When a prang seems inevitable, endeavor to strike the softest, cheapest object in the vicinity, as slowly as possible
    • RAF pilot during WWII
closing thought
Closing Thought
  • When we talk about a pilot who has been killed in a flying accident, we should all keep one thing in mind. He called upon the sum of all his knowledge and made a judgment, He believed in it so strongly that he knowingly bet his life on it. That his judgment was faulty is a tragedy, not stupidity. Every instructor, supervisor, and contemporary who ever spoke to him had an opportunity to influence his judgment, so a little bit of all of us goes with every pilot we lose.
