Squadron 150 Participated in San Diego Training Exercise

Two members of Squadron 150 participated in a recent training exercise hosted by San Diego Group 8 and held at Gillespie Field in El Cajon, California. Squadron 150 Deputy Commander and SM Craig Roalf are already qualified Mission Scanners and are now in training to be Mission Observers.

Mission Observers sit in the right hand seat of Civil Air Patrol aircraft and handle radio communications, assist with navigation, flight and mission planning and conduct visual search when in the search area.

Other CAP members were training in Emergency Services (ES) qualifications such as Mission Scanner, Airborne Photographer, Mission Pilot, Mission Radio Operator, Mission Safety Officer and more.
