Here we go again! Google Civil Air Pratrol on this website and you will see how this taxpayer funded organization can goof up almost anything. I thought they were to set an example for all of us pilots to follow. This organization needs to be disbanded. It mainly provides free training and free airplanes to their friends. Worse example of government waist.

Definitely not the case. Civil Air Patrol is a means for the aviation community to give back. Flight time isn't free except when flying operational missions,orientation flights, and sanctioned emergency services training. The members are come from all walks of life and are dedicated to aviation and public service. Incidents do happen, but due to the size of the fleet (over 550 aircraft) and the difficulty of many to fly enough to achieve mastery, beyond proficiency, accidents are incumbent in this least forgiving of environments.

Dave, how about the $11.9 million judgement against the Civil Air Patrol that killed three innocent taxpaying citzens, who were dedicated to their family's and friends? This happened due to the fact that senior arrogant CAP staff ignored safely rules that would have prevented the accident. Face it, the organization needs to be eliminated saving the taxpayers at least $40 million a year, not counting legal fees and judgements. I really feel bad for the victims, and the CAP needs to issue an apology, which has never happened.
