Yep--I see that the very first lesson topic in my Mission Pilot class many years ago is still applicable: "You, as a Mission Pilot, may NOT fly a Civil Air Patrol aircraft until the weight of the required paperwork is equal to, or greater than, the weight of the airplane." Glad to see the tradition is still alive!
