Standardization/Evaluation Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What type of information is a squadron pilot required to provide?
Required information that pertains to individual pilots is listed on the WIWG Form 9a. This form becomes the individual Pilot File cover sheet. The Form 9a Pilot File is located at the local squadron and it is the pilot’s responsibility to update as documents change, i.e., pilot physical, CAP membership ID card, annual check ride, etc. Normally the squadron Personnel or Operations Officer maintains oversight over all pilot files and will assist each pilot in keeping their individual file updated. Most pilots maintain a duplicate 9a Pilot File for their own review and safe keeping at their home.
Q: How can I become a Check Pilot?
Becoming a Check Pilot or Mission Check Pilot is not a complicated program. The first step, as in all activities involving Civil Air Patrol airplanes, is to get a copy of CAP Regulation 60-1. Copies can be reviewed and printed from the National Headquarters (NHQ) web site. CAPR 60-1 covers requirements for all CAP pilot ratings as well as the rules that govern our conduct as pilots. Once you become familiar with the contents of CAPR 60-1, and if further questions exist, contact the Wing Stan/Eval Officer at the web address above.
Mission Check Pilots are highly experienced CAP pilots with at least 25 missions flown. These may be actual SAR missions or practice missions. A MCP gives instruction in all areas of mission flying as well as completing Form 91 mission training. MCP conduct Mission Pilot check rides and Emergency Services training.
A Check Pilot, Instructor Pilot (IP) is a fully qualified CFI pilot. He / she gives instruction toward earning further pilot ratings and the annual form 5 check rides, Flight Reviews, and proficiency training to qualified CAP pilots.
Cadet Orientation Pilots are qualified to conduct orientation flights for CAP cadets using the USAF Cadet Orientation Flight Syllabus (CAP Pamphlet 52-7).
