"Thats All Brother" is undergoing a major restoration and you are invited to participate. We need volunteers who are willing to travel to Oshkosh Wisconsin and help clean and prep the inside of the fuselage for paint. The job is ready now for anyone who is willing. If you have some basic mechanical or cleaning skills and can take care of your own travel we would love to have you help!
Please contact David Oliver at (firstname.lastname@example.org) to find out more information.
On May 18th through the 21st the AirPower History Tour and TRARON have combined to host an event at Dallas Executive Airport (KRBD). What better way to share the joy of aviation and formation flying than to give the general public the opportunity to watch. The event promises to have lots of flying, education activities, and cockpit tours.
We also need more Formation Instructors as well as anyone intersted in attending their first clinic. If you have a C-45 or a T-6 and are interested in attending please register or contact me (email@example.com) for more information. This year we are also working to develop a large aircraft formation training syllabus. To register click on the button below. (Pre-requisite experience may be required for large aircraft).
If your interested in just attending the AirPower History Tour with a static or ride aircraft please RSVP to Brad Pilgrim (firstname.lastname@example.org). Hope to see you there. Click below to register for the Formation Clinic.
2016 had more incidents and accidents in the CAF than any other year previous. Fortunately not a single person was harmed. But what happened in 2016 that led to so much bent metal? Jim Lasche our CAF Director of Operations & Maintenance presents the facts at Wing Staff Conference as safety was the major topic. We video taped the session and have made it available online as a training course.
This is perhaps one of the most important video's to watch. Click below to see what happened and why.

Up for assignment in the CAF is a recently donated exhibit trailer. This trailer has been donated to the CAF and is available to a Unit. Although the trailer has been previously used by another exhibit, the trailer is in good condition. The previous exhibit that you see in the picture has been removed and the trailer is essentially an empty shell. Its a build to suit structure that is available for your Unit. The estimated cost to upgrade and outfit the trailer similar to the Redtail Exhibit would be $150,00 to $200,000. Click to see more photos and information.
