Civil Air Patrol Operations NY Wing Conference 2014 Citizens Serving Communities
Agenda • Flying hours • Funds • Pilot data and qualifications • Current aircraft • Reminders • Maintenance • Stan/Eval • G1000 items • Cadet flight training • WMIRS problems • WMIRS items • Q&A, discussion
Funds • Cadet Orientation Flights • Spent though April $5,621 • Balance $20,541 • ES Training, Check Rides, Proficiency • Spent through April $10,347 • Balance 1 May $14,977 • Balance for rest of year -$11,978 • Negative balance for full year not a concern at this point • National doing monthly rebalancing • We have underspent all but one mission every month this fiscal year • Most by a significant amount • Proficiency funds not being used • Check rides not getting done • Training missions underrun funds requested
Pilot Data and Qualifications • Pilot data is entered into eServices • Pilots should enter their own data • Data is validated by someone with that authority • Validating data without the evidence is fraud • In NY Wing validation should be by the Group Operations Officer • Validations can be seen and acted upon by higher levels • Appointments are approved up through the chain of command • Approval items cannot be seen by higher levels until they arrive • FRO’s, Check Pilots, Instructor Pilots, Orientation Pilots must be approved by the Wing Commander or designee • IF the Group CC approves the appointment, wing approval is by • NYW/DOV – check and instructor pilots • NYW/DO – FRO’s and orientation pilots • You are qualified for a privilege when the system shows you as such • Recent change in eServices only allows ES task evaluator to validate for up to two weeks then open to all with permission to validate
Current Aircraft • 5 – C172 (N222NY, N235NY, N236NY, N927CP, N98352) • 3 – C182 (N7474X, N9687E, N9816E) • 4 – C182 G1000 (N149CP, N291CP, N715CP, N782CP) • 1 – C206 (N5461X) • 1 – C182 RG (N6420T) • Nine high performance including one complex, five C172 • N6420T and N98352 have been offered for a new C182 G1000 • CAP is working on upgrading some of the existing fleet to “mini-glass cockpit” – NYW got two - N236NY and N5461X – we may get N9411L back after refurbished • N6420T may be replaced with a refurbished C206 in the near future
Reminders • Tire pressure check • VOR checks per the FAR’s • Check maintenance due prior to each flight • Verify that GPS Nav database is current • G500 has database in addition to GPS • Follow the procedures in the NYW Safety Letter if there is an incident • Verify that the AIF has the latest copies of regulations, NYW letters and NER supplements • Remind local maintenance officer when items are due • 5 hours prior to oil change, two weeks (best guess) prior to 100 hour/annual • IFR certification or ELT battery due in current month
Reminders 2 • Flight releases recorded in WMIRS promptly • WMIRS sends out notices of flights not released • Pilots must select a FRO for all flights • Complete and accurate entries in WMIRS • Aircraft log sheets to NYW/DO by the 5th of the following month • NYW/DO uses WMIRS data to generate a report for Groups and Wing FM for maintenance funds due from Groups with pilot and sortie detail • Direct reimburse to member feature of WMIRS can be used – NYW/DO cannot track payment • Up to member to provide NHQ required information for this to happen
Reminders 3 • If you are NOT actively using the tow bar it will NOT be attached to the aircraft • Actively using means it is attached AND your hand is on it • Placards should be in all aircraft • Directed by CAP National Commander • 9 prop strikes on tow bars in 4 years • If you have a foot (may not be yours) on a brake while landing you will most likely have a flat tire • Issues during landings are significant across CAP
Maintenance • Check the front of the AIF (3 ring binder in aircraft) before flight • If something is coming due remind the local maintenance officer • If something is overdue – do not fly • Tire pressure checks are still the rule • Maintenance procedures recently updated and posted at http://nywcap.org/ • Maintenance officers and pilots who drop off or pick up aircraft need to understand and follow
Stan/Eval • New CAPR 60-1 was issued 9 April 2014 • Revised CAPR 60-1 issued 3 May 2014 • Aircraft ground handling training for cadets doing orientation flights has been rescinded • New check ride forms must be used • A number of qualifications added for glider and balloon operations • A “road show” of pilot information has been put together and DOV, DOM and DO will be presenting across the wing
G1000 Items • G1000 qualification is now a CAPF 5 endorsement vs. C182/G1000 aircraft notation • FRO’s need to pay attention to this detail when releasing • CAP developed G1000 training syllabus • Required for all new G1000 pilots • Cessna FITS ground training highly recommended as well • Contains important detail not in CAP program • For flight instructor privileges in G1000 equipped aircraft, complete the CAP in-house G1000 transition syllabus for Flight Instructors that is given by a qualified G1000 Check Pilot. • 180 day grace period from date of CAPR 60-1 (12 Dec 2012) • Applies to ground school only – material in eServices • Check pilot doing “course” will record in eServices • G1000 check pilots were grandfathered but need to review material • Previously qualified pilots – no action required except IP’s
Cadet Flight Training • Cadets desiring flight training will submit a letter to the Wing CC and DO stating why he/she wants to train, that they and parents/guardians understand and agree to the financial responsibility, the name of the CAP instructor they plan to use, and the type of aircraft they will train in (C172 or C182). This will be the basis for approving the training.
WMIRS Problems • Reversing the Tach and Hobbs numbers • The starting Hobbs and/or Tach does not equal the prior flight ending numbers • The elapsed Hobbs is forced to a number rather than the calculated number • Dropping or incorrect leading digits for the Hobbs and/or Tach (eg 3xxx.x becomes xxx.x or 2xxx.x) • Errors in fuel/oil cost by not including the taxes • Not uploading receipts for all funded flights • Uploading the wrong receipt • Not entering fuel cost and quantity for ALL flights • No FRO selected • Incomplete 104 data and missing ORM and weight and balance • Aircraft log sheets need to be complete and readable • Note that incorrect Tach data may give the next pilot a warning that some maintenance is overdue when it is not, or not warn that something is due • How to avoid these errors – check your data after you submit the form
