GEORGIA WING HEADQUARTERS
UNITED STATES AIR FORCE AUXILIARY
800-A Dobbins Patrol Rd. Hanger 5, Rm 2110
Dobbins ARB GA 30069-4210
22 Oct 2012
MEMORANDUM FOR: All Personnel Georgia Wing
FROM: Commander Georgia Wing Civil Air Patrol
SUBJECT: Airborne Photography Training and Mission Sign Off on Counter Drug Missions
1. It has come to my attention that some officers are using Counter Drug Missions, on
which no photography was requested by the customer or au to sign off the sortie
participation requirement for the Airborne Photographer qualification, after careful
review and consultation with other officers I have determined that this practice is not
fully in compliance with CAP/USAF directives and 1st AF instructions.
2. Officers participating in Counter Drug missions (A3 mission designation) where no
customer photography was requested and approved will not use these missions as
opportunities to sign off Airborne Photographer tasks. This in no way prohibits training
in other mission aircrew qualifications. Airborne Photographer task sign off can
however be accomplished during Counter Drug Training missions (A4 mission
designation) when in compliance with the approved Operations Training Plan.
