Preventing blind spots
Preventing Blind Spots:

  • Last month we had a van change lanes into an unseen car. A blind spot was the suspected reason.

  • For years, we'd been setting our side-view mirrors so that they gave us a view of the back corner of our cars.

    • It's been done for generations - from grandfather, to father, to us!

  • We finally discovered something very interesting.

    • The back corner of the car never moves.

    • It always stays in the same exact place.

  • By moving the side mirrors farther out, you can line up all three of your mirrors so they have minimal overlap -- and you can see everything behind you and beside you.

Large blind spot

Lots of duplication

Mirrors set with minimum overlap
Mirrors set with Minimum Overlap

Almost no blind spots

Takes a while to get used to

Changes to the safety program
Changes to the Safety Program

  • Online unit safety meeting recording/reporting

    • Training available in e-services

    • Online briefing and quiz to make up missed safety briefing

    • Tracks participation in monthly and quarterly face-to-face meetings

  • Reports eligibility to participate based on your recent safety meeting participation

  • New CAPR 62 series regs are being finalized

  • New safety Hazard Report


Sentinel overview
Sentinel Overview

  • Safety – A View from a Mom

    • Prove to mom that CAP is capable of keeping her child safe.

    • If you call identify yourself, then first tell mom that her child is okay. Only then can you continue the conversation.

    • If her child needs my consent for any activity, tell her why

    • Tell mom about all the things CAP does to ensure that her child is safe in a CAP vehicle or aircraft.

    • Tell mom about the training facilities and the training personnel

    • Tell mom about the mandatory safety briefings at every CAP activity

Sentinel overview1
Sentinel Overview

  • Threat and Error Management in GA

    • TEM is a concept that the airlines have been employing for several years.

    • It has been described as “defensive driving” for pilots

    • TEM involves the practice of recognizing threats and errors that would reduce the margin of safety, and then taking appropriate measures to reduce the potential for an accident.

    • Crew Resource Management (CRM) is the last line of defense against threats and errors.

Sentinel overview2
Sentinel Overview

  • Safety Vests

    • Safety Vests are required to be worn when participating in ground activities

    • It is highly recommended that safety attire meet ANSI II or ANSI III reflectivity standards.

      • All ANSI vests will have strips of the contrasting color and reflective material for maximum visibility in low-light settings.

    • Expect this recommendation to be integrated into CAP guidance

April mn incidents
April MN Incidents

  • Cadet twisted his ankle while reversing direction during a shuttle run

  • Hazard report

    • I observed two wing vans both traveling above the posted limit of 55 mph, with less than one second travel time between them (tail-gating). Both vans were carrying cadets.
