2018 Mission Scanner School

Check periodically for updates


Mission Scanner school classroom and flight training. Primarily directed at (1) renewing proficiency of trained WA state / CAP SAR aircrew and mission base staff, and (2) training new CAP SAR aircrew, with a focus on those working toward WA state qualification.

Due to unavoidable circumstances, this training will NOT provide WSDOT qualification.

Classroom and flying registration priority will go to those who are training toward WA state SAR qualifications but will be open to non-SAR oriented members as space allows. Flight training priority will go to those who complete the classroom course and SAR-oriented members as space is limited, plus the weekend will include proficiency and requalification training for qualified or expired mission base staff.


Project Officers: Lt Col Bill Gibbs, Maj John Haug
