Civil Air Patrol cadets and seniors turned in an exemplary performance this past weekend at the Scottsdale Air Fair!
The City of Scottsdale, the Scottsdale Airport Director and Manager, the Airport Advisory Commission, PSM2 the promoter, as well as several pilots who were in attendance at the air fair praised CAP’s participation.
Every display; 314's C-182 on loan; the CAP Glider brought over by Tim Carroll (who supervised the assembly and disassembly by 35 cadets); the History & Aerospace Exhibit; the Recruiting Booth; the Rocket Launch; the Mobile Command Trailer; the 30 plus Seniors; and of course, the 40 or so cadets; represented CAP well.
Our cadets marched as one unit during the Sunday Opening Ceremonies and were called upon to perform many tasks including crowd control and the management of the aircraft 'hot zone'.
Every cadet looked and acted the part-- A great weekend for CAP in front of over 20,000 people.
