Squadrons east of the Mississippi, eh?

Never heard a peep from my chain of command, yet. Its not unlikely that pilots from my area might fly to FDK, but they'd have to blow right past it to hit P-40.

But still, its a little disingenuous to say "every squadron east of the Mississippi" when that's clearly not the case.


I got it through my chain of command. "NER/CC, MER/CC and GLR/CC,

AOPA has asked for our support this coming Saturday. See the details below. Can you please contact your wings ASAP to see if they can participate? This is a great opportunity to assist one of CAP's important partners. Thank you.

looks like CAP got the money. Good job!

"We challenged pilots coming to the fly-in to show the FAA and the security folks just how conscientious pilots really are," said AOPA President Phil Boyer. "We said if they delivered on that challenge -- no incursion violations -- we'd donate $5,000 to the Civil Air Patrol to thank them for their assistance in this effort. This is money I’m GLAD to give away."
