Pilot Dan, Pilot Kent, and Pilot Mike talk with Capt. Rod, of the Civil Air Patrol

Pilot Kent is calling in from Peru, Illinois.

CAP Command Patch

We've got another great show for you, this week. In our Feedback and Followup section, Pilot Kent continues to get his Instrument Ticket wet and describes a wicked cool IFR night flight. Pilot Mike talks about the frustration trying to get ATC services while flying the Chicago Lakefront route and lastly, the whole crew talk about some of the most interesting airport names they know about.

In our hangar flying with Capt. Rod, he tells us how and why the Civil Air Patrol was formed. We learn about their role in today's world, how their Cadet program trains for leadership, and what adult members can achieve as part of CAP. Capt. Rod talks about the current fleet of aircraft and what a typical mission in support of Homeland Security, would involve. He describes his most memorable mission, which didn't even involve his piloting a plane. And finally, he talks about how a pilot can best outfit himself to prepare for an emergency.

Thank you for playing my song, \"Fly, Raven, Fly.\" Singing harmony with Dana Cox (now Dana Ward) for a year gave me one of the best years of my life. Fun stuff.

You guys rock. What a great podshow concept! I\'m going to share the show with my pal Scott Slone from the Alaska Podshow podcast and I\'ll plug you at my own podcast at Snacks4theBrain!.
