                                                      Rev. 13 Jun 07

General rules
   1. Only current CAP members, wearing a CAP uniform, can fly in CAP aircraft. If your membership has
      expired, you cannot fly.
   2. All flights must be released by a flight release officer. If you are a current and qualified CAP pilot, you call
      an FRO to request your release. If it is your first checkride or you are not current, then your instructor pilot
      or check pilot must obtain the release.
   3. When using the aircraft, must sign-out and sign-in the keys at SEG HQ (in addition to filling out the SEG-
      sign/in book at the front desk for insurance purposes.
   4. Upon completion of each flight, you must report the information (mission symbol, flight hours, and fuel)
      into WMIRS (CAP’s web mission information reporting system) at
      a. All flights must be entered into WMIRS immediately following the flight.
      b. All CAP pilots can use WMIRS, but only certain personnel have the ability to enter flights with actual
           mission numbers. When you fly an “A” or “B” mission, you must have the mission IC, the Operations
           Officer, or the ES officer enter the flight information into WMIRS.
      c. Flights funded by USAF or CAP incur no cost to the pilot. For these flights, pay for fuel using the
           Multiservice credit card in the aircraft binder. The fuel receipt must then be attached to a CAPF 108
           (Excel template – get it at ) and submitted to Lt Col Bill Hughes, CAP (NY
           WG/DOS), 4667 Boynton Rd., Walworth, NY, 14568. CAPF 108s may be submitted via email to
  with the hard copy mailed within 10 days. A CAPF 108 must be
           submitted any time fuel is paid for on an assigned mission. For more detailed information on
           reimbursement procedures, see
