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

SCAPA member Paul Marshall will present an adventurous flightseeing trip through Alaska he took this summer. Along with pictures of great scenery, wildlife and airports, you'll see some of the planning and preparation aids that went into this trip that traversed over 6,000 nm, consumed over 600 gallons of avgas, and clicked off more than 47 flight hours on the Hobbs meter. SCAPA member and CFII Dick Chang also flew on half the trip and will be present to help answer questions.

FAA/SC County/Skydiving Impasse Resolved PDF Print E-mail
Written by Jim Petersen   
Tuesday, 10 September 2013

Hello SCAPA members,

It is with great pride tonight that I can relay this awesome news. The Santa Clara County board of supervisors voted unanimously today to not appeal the FAA final decision, and to also allow skydiving at our airport, E16. This has been a long fought battle with $1.5 million in FAA grant funds being halted last year due to the counties non-compliance. Your SCAPA board has been a fighting force in getting this issue resolved since it began over four years ago. We cannot take too much credit, but feel that we have been a powerful force in the fight to get monies and improvements flowing back into all three county airports. SCAPA also backed the FAA's initial decision, and supported Jeff Bodin's FAA approved skydiving business over four years ago. Kudos for Jeff to hang in there for so long as a small business guy fighting for his rights, against a large county opposition.
