R ecent reporting by AVweb and other aviation publications illuminating the Civil Air Patrol's CAP participation in Operation Drop-In and related anti-drug efforts by the federal government has highlighted a fundamental shift from the CAP's traditional primary mission, search and rescue.
No longer is the organization's central focus on its role as the auxiliary to the U.
Air Force but, increasingly, it is on new activities that have nothing to do with looking for missing aircraft and persons or its cadet programs. Customs Service and the Drug Enforcement Agency. For years, the CAP has been engaged in flight operations on behalf of the federal government, flying federal law enforcement personnel and their equipment to search for clandestine airstrips and marijuana fields and flying the borders looking for smugglers, for example.
Of course, as the CAP's drug-interdiction activities have grown in scope and frequency, so have its budget and its appetite for an ever-greater role to play. You could say that CAP is, itself, addicted to drugs.
What's All The Fuss? As word of the CAP's involvement in Operation Drop-In has spread, so has grass roots opposition to this role, leading to a major and growing public relations problem for the organization.
Of course, CAP has always had something of a public relations problem among many pilots. Much of this problem stems from the long-held perception among CAP members that being a member and wearing a uniform confers upon them some special authority.
Manifestations of such attitudes tend to rub the general pilot population the wrong way. In particular, many in CAP tend to emphasize the military aspects of the organization, the uniforms, rank, decorations and regulations, turning off many pilots who see this enthusiasm for such trappings as misplaced and an insult to those who have served in the military, despite the fact that many in CAP are former military members.

Some call this the "tin soldier" syndrome, itself a reason many decide not to join, or quickly drop out of CAP. Non-members are sometimes envious of what they view as the CAP member's perks: They probably don't know that members joke that CAP means "Come And Pay" for the myriad of expenses generally shouldered by those who are active members.
Animosity toward CAP can arise from many places. To the former member who cared not for the chain of command or who had a bad cadet experience, and to the fly-in visitor who has had a run-in with a poorly-trained CAP cadet providing directions to a parking spot.
Whatever the rationale, whatever the reason, the CAP's perception among average GA pilots is decidedly mixed.Order B is the FAA’s Compliance and Enforce-ment Program and provides the greatest level of YYour Rights When our Rights When tthe FAA Comes Knockinghe FAA Comes Knocking By Paul A.
