MEMBER SERVICES; PUBLICATIONS; PAMPHLETS. This is a must-have booklet, explains how to
start, training programs, progression and tracks, form and manual #’s, glossary, etc. A wealth of info!!
Pegasus II Newsletter: The KY Wing newsletter. Very Informative. On KY Wing home page,
look on the left for DEPARTMENTS, under this click on PUBLIC AFFAIRS.
Tax Info: The Good News! CAP is a 501c3 non-profit charitable organization. This means that pretty much every
un-reimbursed expense in direct relationship to CAP activities is a tax deduction! All dues, uniform costs, training
materials (CAP manuals, etc) aircraft and fuel costs, overnight lodging and meals, CAP conferences, etc. can be written
off. Keep accurate copies of all receipts! You could even donate money or goods and receive a deduction (ie:
equipment for Sqdn use; computer, photocopier, furniture, etc.). Car mileage for CAP activities is also deductible at 14
cents/mile – get a little spiral bound notebook and log every trip to airport for CAP meetings, flying, SAREX, etc. Log
date, ODO begin, end, and brief description. Flying costs are deductible as long as they are for training and proficiency,
ie: B-12 and C-17 missions. It gets more complicated if you’re doing training for a FAA license or rating as the IRS has
given members grief with claims for “flight instruction leading to an FAA certificate or rating.” Consult a tax advisor on
this, the pertinent IRS ruling is:
58-279; 1958-23 IRB 12. At Level2 site, Publications; Pamphlets, download CAPP 173-2, Federal Taxes.
Flying: In order to fly as PIC in a CAP aircraft, a number of requirements must be met. You must:
1) Be a current CAP member and in possession of a CAP Membership card.
2) Be in uniform; USAF / CAP Flight Suit or KY-214 Sqdn Uniform.
3) Be a current, dues paid member of the KY-214 Sqdn.
4) Have all pilot paperwork up to date and on file with the KY Wing HQ.
5) Complete a Form 5 Check ride and Airplane Questionnaire.
6) Be listed with the KY Wing as a current CAP pilot (the Form 5 meets this criteria).
7) Obtain a Flight Release from a Flight Release Officer.
8) Be in possession of a current pilot license, medical certificate, and meet FAA currency
If you simply want to go flying and do not yet have all the above squared away, another qualified Sqdn. member could
act as PIC of record and you would only have to meet the requirement of the first three items listed. You could call the
FRO and reserve the aircraft, but the PIC would call for the actual flight release.
At the current time (2005), rental rates are $22 and $25 per hour plus fuel - C-172 and C-182 respectively. This is paid
each time you fly by attaching a check to the Form-94 flight paperwork.
