Aerospace Education Presentation this Thursday

This week's meeting (10 May, 2018) will be focused on Aerospace Education, one of the three core missions of Civil Air Patrol.  Assistant Aerospace Education Officer SM Stefan Juling, who is a private pilot, will be presenting on the topic of "air speeds." 

Specifically he'll be speaking on:

- What the different airspeeds (IAS, CAS, TAS, GS) mean
- When to use which air speed in communication 
- How to calculate the different air speeds
- Risk management of air speeds

Squadron 150 meets Thursday evenings from 1930-2100 (7:30-9:30 PM) at the Los Alamitos Joint Forces Training Base (JFTB) in Los Alamitos, California. If you are visiting for the first time, we recommend that you plan on arriving by 7:15pm so that we have some time to welcome you before the meeting begins. Please also plan on staying a few minutes after the meeting so that we can make sure to answer any questions you might have about serving in CAP.

Los Alamitos JFTB is an active military installation and you will need to show proper picture ID to the guards at the front gate. Let them know that you are visiting the base for the purpose of attending the Civil Air Patrol meeting.

Some things to be aware of prior to visiting:
  • Your vehicle may be subject to search
  • The speed limit while driving on base is 25 MPH and it is strictly enforced by Federal law. 
  • Sell phones may be operated while driving aboard the base only if a hands-free device is employed.
We look forward to seeing you this Thursday 10 May, 2018!
