    These guys proceeded to fly around for two hours, searching for the ELT. When they returned, I asked if they had any luck. They mumbled that they couldn’t find out from where the signal was emanating. Turns out it was a Cherokee 6, that had a hard landing, at our airport, and was parked directly next to the CAP 172.

    I remember thinking that if I had a problem and went down and it was up to these idiots to find me, I would pretty much be doomed.

In several instances, press releases by CAP National Headquarters have cross the bounds of proper decorum. CAP Region Commanders referred to actions by top Air Force leaders as ‘slimy,’ called them ‘liars,’ and proclaimed them worthy of ‘removal from office. Unless corrected, these attacks will permanently breach the CAP-Air Force relationship.
