Arizona AE Team and Cadets Shine at Media Event

By Lt Col Pete Feltz


Phoenix--Anthem Elementary School, in the Phoenix, AZ area knows how to celebrate!  About 800 students turned out to greet the FOX 10 News helicopter and reporter Cory McClosky. Most of the students had their Aerospace Academy shirts on and did a super job making  posters for the event.  FOX 10 was at the school for over two hours and McClosky greeted all the students in the lineup. 

The whole show was taped by Fox 10 and some of it was aired as it happened on the morning news.  As you can tell by the signs, Civil Air Patrol is shown as collaborating with the school to help them accomplish this ACE School of the Year award. 

After the Fox 10 helicopter left, the CAP contingent was invited to ten classrooms to promote CAP and try to recruit those interested to join the Deer alley Squadron.  There was a lot of interest by the students and it also gave CAP a chance to congratulate them for their Aerospace achievement. Photos are posted in the Wing photo album on the website Home page.




AZ Wing Represented at Military Expo

by Lt Col Pete Feltz

The Arizona Wing Aerospace Education Team sets up an recruitment booth at this Expo.  The Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny was present to open the Expo.  Our cadets posted the colors.  Even though this was primarily to explore benefits for the military veteran, we had good action at our booth with veterans inquiring about CAP and several took information to join.  We wish to thank the DCC for the Chandler Sq. 304. Christopher Newberry and his crew of cadets and senior members to help set up and take down the booth.  We also thank Fritz Seifritz, the Wing Internal AEO for his great displays for the booth.

Please take a look at photos from the event in the Wing Photo Album on this page.

Civil Air Patrol receives a second $10,000 grant from Lightspeed Aviation Foundation

MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, Ala. – For the second straight year, Civil Air Patrol is among the nation’s best aviation charitable organizations and the recipient of a $10,000 grant from the Lightspeed Aviation Foundation’s gift and grant program.

Lightspeed Aviation President Allan Schrader made the contribution to Civil Air Patrol this morning at the Pilots Choice Awards at the AOPA Aviation Summit in Hartford, Conn.

Col. Christopher J. Hayden, commander of Civil Air Patrol’s Northeast Region, accepted the grant, which recognizes CAP as one of the top five aviation charitable organizations in America in 2011. Twenty aviation charities were nominated as potential grant recipients, but only the top five organizations – as chosen by pilots and other aviation enthusiasts from across the country – earned the foundation’s grants.
