Bennington Airport Potluck Fly in and CAP Membership Drive Bennington Airport Potluck Fly in and CAP Membership Drive

A potluck fly-in and Civil Air Patrol membership drive will be held at the William H. Morse airport in Bennington on Saturday, February 8th 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM. The purpose of this event is to highlight the benefit and services of the airport, encourage general aviation pilots to gather and socialize, and promote the services and volunteer opportunities of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP). Sponsored by the Vermont State Aviation Program, you are encouraged to bring your favorite pot of chili, crock pot, goodies, or cold plate. Come and meet fellow pilots and community volunteers. Airport manager Darrin Lofton, noticed an increased interest in the CAP by visitors to the airport, and invited its members to attend and recruit new members, and consider forming a new squadron in Bennington. The Vermont Wing of CAP currently has squadrons in South Burlington, Barre, Rutland, and Springfield. Representatives from CAP plan to attend and will “fly-in” their aircraft, weather permitting. CAP is the official civilian auxiliary of the United States Air Force and a national community service organization made up of professionally trained volunteers. It has a modern, well‐equipped fleet of aircraft, vehicles and equipment, and is known for providing search and rescue of downed aircraft and missing persons. CAP was formed by volunteers in 1941 to help patrol American coast lines, and evolved into a congressionally chartered non-profit organization with three primary missions: Aerospace Education – Cadet Programs – Disaster Services. The Vermont Wing has active cadet programs, and provides search and rescue and disaster relief missions for various agencies, including FEMA during Hurricanes Sandy and Irene, by providing incident awareness assessment for officials, via airborne photography of large areas of Vermont, New Jersey, New York and Connecticut. CAP has also supported the Air National Guard by providing targets for air intercept training and radar evaluation.
