 REMINDER ANNOUNCEMENT 
WAWG PILOT 
To all FAA-licensed pilots in WAWG,

As CAP continues to remobilize across the country and more
 flying missions such as O-Flights and aircrew training become available, the need for qualified CAP pilots becomes greater and 
of high priority.

NHQ has identified this major need for pilots and has already allocated a significant training budget for Pilot Onboarding and Return to Flight to help pilots earn or renew their CAP
 qualifications.

In order to make the process easier for everyone, we have put together a new website with a PDF Presentation to guide you to 
the latest pilot resources. In addition, we have created a sign up 
form to request a CFI or Check Pilot, and a directory of current WAWG CFIs and Check Pilots. If you need training or a check 
ride, please use the form on the website.

The website is:

We hope this website will become the one-stop resource for all WAWG pilots. The site will be updated as more information and resources become available.

TRAINING BEYOND CAP 
King County is offering ICS 100, 200, 300 and 400 Classes
Hello!
Some *big* news to pass along today regarding a bunch of
 upcoming ICS-400 classes and other ICS classes we are planning to offer throughout 2021:

Read carefully, they have specific information and requirements.

1) ICS-400 classes are here!!! We have currently scheduled *six* ICS-400 classes in the near-term and at least two more throughout the rest of the year. We may add more classes, if we see enough people on the waitlists.

We have also tried to tailor certain sessions to groups that have work-related scheduling issues.

NOTE: All of these are remote-access classes that will be using 
the Zoom video-conferencing system. Because of the amount of 
small-group exercises in this course, unless there are technological hurdles for someone, all students will be **expected** to participate 
in the class with a live video camera during most of the class (even
 if it's just from their cell phone). Here is what we are offering:

a. For anyone: We are finding that taking classes via video-conferencing can be pretty tiring in the typical 8-hour format, so 
these are designed to only take up about half the day. These sessions start on Monday and end on Thursday of the same week. We will be starting at 8:00 AM each day. We will be done by 
12:30 PM each day (and and there will be 10 minute breaks after every 50 minutes of class. Here are the links to the registration
 sites for these classes:

b. For responders that have to take training in 8-hour blocks: This 
is primarily for folks that are on patrol or 24-hour duty schedules (typically police and fire) that would have difficulty getting 
permission to take four days of half-day classes. This class will be
 in the traditional 2 day format. We will start at 8:00 AM every day 
and end at 5:00 PM. There will be 10 minute breaks after every 
50 minutes of class and a lunch break in the middle of each day.

c. For volunteer responders: Our volunteers have regular 9-5 jobs and are usually not able to take our day classes. To try to accommodate their schedules, we are going to offer one class at night. These sessions will be on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Each class will be spread over six nights, all starting at 6:00 PM. 
We will be done by 9:00 PM each night and there will be 10 minute breaks after every 50 minutes of class. Here are the links to the registration site for this class (unless you are a volunteer responder, *PLEASE* do not sign up for this class unless all the other classes are already full):

2) We have also scheduled some additional ICS-300 classes. (We may add more classes, if we see enough people on the waitlists.) 
All of these are remote-access classes that will be using the Zoom video-conferencing system. Because of the number of small-group exercises in the ICS-300 course, unless there are technological hurdles for someone, all students will be **expected** to participate
 in the class with a live video camera during most of the class 
(even if it's just from their cell phone).

These are designed to only take up about half the day. These sessions start on Monday and end on Friday of the same week. 
We will be starting at 8:00 AM each day. We will definitely be done 
by 1:00 PM each day (and likely earlier most days, except Wednesday) and there will be 10 minute breaks after every 50 minutes of class. Here are the links to the registration sites for 
these classes:

3) We are also going to be trying something new... How about 
some refresher / "Just-In-Time" training regarding ICS-100 and 
ICS-200? This will be in the form of 'Lunchtime Lectures' that will spend 30 minutes covering the main points of both of these 
courses and still give you some time to take FEMA's standard 
online test (which takes an additional 10-30 minutes).

This would be a good review if your last ICS-100 or -200 class was
 "a few years ago". This may also be an option if you do not have a lot of spare time at night and on the weekends, but are comfortable learning the material during a very accelerated, 30-minute lecture (webinar) format.

There is *NO* limit to how many people can attend these sessions (so feel free to share this with anyone else in your organization
 that may have an interest), but each person does need to register 
for the session they want to attend.

Full details are available at these registration sites:

ICS-100 (Lunchtime Lecture):

ICS-200 (Lunchtime Lecture):

4) We will also be offering remote-access training sessions 
regarding how to use WebEOC. They are intended for WebEOC users from *any* jurisdiction inside **King County** 
that is currently using WebEOC. (Note: The City of Seattle's implementation of WebEOC is slightly different than the system 
we are offering training for. If you have an account on the City of Seattle's WebEOC system, please reach out to the person that set 
up your account to find out what your training options are.) Here 
are the links to the registration sites for our classes:

Please share this information with anyone else in your organization that needs to know about these training opportunities (and thanks
 for reading all the way to the end).

Happy Birthday, Civil Air Patrol 
Civil Air Patrol's Iowa Wing joins other CAP units across the 
 nation today in observing the organization’s 79th anniversary. 
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds has proclaimed Dec.1 as “Civil Air
 Patrol Day” to mark the organization’s 79th anniversary and recognize the value that CAP volunteer members provide the 
state through emergency services, cadet programs and
 aerospace education. The city of Cedar Rapids will likewise 
proclaim “Civil Air Patrol Day” at its City Council meeting today, 
said Col. Jonathan Lartigue, Iowa Wing commander. Similar proclamations have been made by the mayors of Dubuque, 
Waterloo, Cedar Falls and Burlington, he said. CAP was founded Dec.1, 1941, by a group of aviation enthusiasts and private pilots 
who wanted to donate their time and aircraft to protect the nation’s coastlines and perform other critical civil defense missions. Their wartime volunteer service was recognized with a Congressional 
Gold Medal in 2014. More About 'Civil Air Patrol Day'

Malachowski Made History as First Woman Selected as Thunderbird Pilot
Retired Air Force Col. Nicole Malachowski, a former CAP cadet who became the first female Thunderbird pilot, is featured in 
the National Business Aviation Association's series for 
Women's History Month.
Before she was commissioned into the military from the U.S. Air Force Academy and made history as the No. 3 Right Wing pilot (pictured above) with the Thunderbirds, Malachowski was a cadet 
in the Nevada Wing. She served in CAP six years and soloed 
when she was 16.

During her 21 years as an Air Force officer, leader and fighter pilot, her accomplishments were many, earning her induction into the National Women's Hall of Fame in 2019.
