Written by Paul Marshall   
Wednesday, 16 October 2013

Fellow SCAPA Members:
 
Please help your pilot association with its annual Disaster Airlift Relief Team exercises November 9th 2013 at the South County airport south ramp at 9:00AM until noon. Many of you helped with the January 2012 initial proof of concept training and exercises. Based on that operation, the procedures  and forms were updated. This year our emphasis will be on procedural run-through to improve our state of readiness should a disaster occur.

We’ll work through practice exercises on:

•  Accepting donations and deliveries of materiel
•  Logging, storing, weighing, moving, tracking, distributing and loading materiel
•  Matching payloads to pilots and planes
•  Qualifying pilots for duty
•  Qualifying passengers for flights
•  Maintaining Materiel and Passenger Logs for both the Provider and Receiver side of the operation
•  Making test disaster airlift relief flights with materiel and passengers
