USAF Evaluated Exercise This Weekend!

Members of Squadron 150 will join other members (including Senior Members (Adults) and Cadets) from California Wing squadrons this weekend (22-23 April, 2017) for the bi-annual U.S. Air Force (USAF) Evaluated Exercise. Every other year the USAF evaluates CAWG during a statewide training exercise to ensure that we are proficient in our capabilities as the US Air Force Auxiliary.

During the exercise aircrews and ground teams typically are tasked with a variety of missions from locating a missing aircraft, to taking airborne pictures of a simulated disaster area, to locating a practice emergency locator transmitter (ELT) and more.

Mission Base for this Exercise is Squadron 5 HQ at Riverside Municipal Airport (KRAL)-and there are several remote bases located throughout California as well.
