CAP Reaches 100,000 Flying Hours

posted Sep 10, 2016, 9:27 AM by Augustine Ubaldi

On September 7, 2016, Civil Air Patrol reached 100,000 flying hours for Fiscal Year 2016 across its fleet of aircraft. In Fiscal Year 2015 on this same date CAP had flown 93,256 hours, making this an over 7% increase in CAP’s flying at this time over last year. Why has CAP flown more this year? CAP is always looking for new opportunities for its members to fly in support of their communities across the country, while continuing to do continuing to prepare for and respond to emergencies when needed. In comparison to last year, the largest area of growth in terms of flying hours for missions has been in disaster relief flying; CAP has flown over 850 more hours in this area than it did in FY15 supporting 46 different disaster missions across the country from Flooding in South Carolina at the beginning of the fiscal year to Hurricane Hermine support in Florida over the last week. CAP members have also flown over 1,000 more hours to train to support these missions this year. We don’t often know where the next disaster will be, but CAP works to be prepared all the time.
