UNIFORMS

Please wear Class Bs for today as we’ll be maybe getting a tad dirty. Saturday and Sunday, Please wear Class As with Class B T-shirts underneath.

Rationale; We have permission from the Council to wear Class As for the Air Show, to include selling Programs. There is some question on the part of the Malmstrom Legal office ref. not selling programs in Class A. So, BE PREPARED for both eventualities. — Lonnie

I have been able to get 50 individual passes and 5 reserved parking passes for each day (Sat and Sun). Please respond with the names and which day you would prefer to volunteer for. To ensure there is NO confusion, ALL VOLUNTEERS should provide me this information so I can get them their passes, too. Friday volunteers are needed for set up, too. All Scouts are welcome to participate, mostly in selling Souvenir Programs, but can also help at the booth. All Volunteers are reminded that the Aviation Merit Badge Scouts take priority in the issue of passes (But I can get more!!)

More later tonight when I can get things set up this afternoon!!!

A change in the method of entering the Guard Base. All visitors must be escorted. Therefore, my wife, Rhonda, will be at the small Air Park to the left of the Main Gate. She and others who have military IDs will escort all visitors to the OPS building. PLEASE be at the Air Park at 0730 to expedite the process. IF YOU KNOW ANYONE WHOSE SCOUT IS GOING TO ATTEND, AND NOT ON THIS LIST, please CALL AND LET THEM KNOW of this change.

This is gonna be fun!

Subject: Aviation Merit Badge

Hello Scouts and Scouters!

The date is rapidly approaching to work on the Aviation Merit Badge and help out at the Flight over the Falls Air Show! Below are the requirements from the AVN MB that will be used to earn our merit badge. There are more in the Merit badge book, and I encourage each Scout to look over the other requirements and see if they interest him. I’ll be happy to work with each Scout to give him the best possible experience. A comprehensive schedule will be published shortly. Here is the short version.

Tuesday, 26 July

Requirements 1a — d and 3a

Wednesday, 27 July

Requirements 2b and 5

Saturday, 30 July and Sunday, 31 July

Requirement 4. c — Attend and Volunteer at Air Show

——

1. a.Define “aircraft.” Describe some kinds and uses of aircraft today. Explain the operation of piston, turboprop, and jet engines.

b.Point out on a model airplane the forces that act on an airplane in flight.

c.Explain how an airfoil generates lift, how the primary control surfaces (ailerons, elevators, and rudder) affect the airplane’s attitude, and how a propeller produces thrust.

d .Demonstrate how the control surfaces (Ailerons, Elevators, Rudder, Flaps) of an airplane are used for takeoff, straight climb, level turn, climbing turn, descending turn, straight descent, and landing.

e.Explain the following: the recreational pilot and the private pilot certificates; the instrument rating.

2. a. Take a flight in an aircraft with your parent’s permission. Record the date, place, type of aircraft, and duration of flight, and report on your impressions of the flight.

b. Under supervision, perform a preflight inspection of a light airplane.

3. b. Build a model FPG-9. Get others in your troop or patrol to make their own model, then organize a competition to test the precision of flight and landing of the models.

4. c. Visit an aviation museum or attend an air show. Report on your impressions of the museum or show.

5. Find out about three career opportunities in aviation. Pick one, and find out the education, training, and experience required for this profession. Discuss this with your counselor, and explain why this profession might interest you.

I’ve found Volunteers who will be providing instruction in the requirements; Military, Commercial and Civil Aviation Pilots, Operations Specialists machinists, etc.. All the Requirements will be met, with the exception of 2.a. I have promises for light aircraft from some private pilots, and we are trying for flights in a helicopter from Malmstrom. We will try to get as many Flights as possible as soon as possible so as to build a schedule and flight plan to present for district approval. HOWEVER, in order to build this schedule, I MUST have the Scouts names by MONDAY, 25 July. I’ve included a consent form. Please fill it out for your Scout and return it to me. Leave the date blank and I will contact you when we go to build the schedule.

Next most important item – I must have the name and driver’s license number of each person driving onto the MT ANG base, whether dropping the boys off or picking them up. I must get this info to the Security Forces so as to allow entry to the base.

Also, don’t forget to Volunteer (Scouts and Scout Parents, Tigers and Partners, Cubs and Venturers, too) for help setting up and during the Show itself

Okee -Dokee More info to follow as I get it!

Yours in Scouting,

Lonnie D. Adkins, Scoutmaster Troop 7

Opportunity to Earn Your Aviation Merit Badge!

Hello Scouters!! Please get this out to all of your Scouts and other Scouters! (including Cubs, Webelos, Boy Scouts and Venture Scouts) Please see the flyer for info.

The Aviation merit badge was one of the Original 57 Merit Badges issued by the Boy Scouts of America in 1911. Working with Lt Col Carlton of the MT ANG, we’ve been able to arrange for District Boy Scouts to work for their Aviation Merit Badge and attend the Flight Over the Falls Air Show. VOLUNTEERS for the AIR SHOW are also needed; Scouters, Cubs, Venture Scouts are all welcome to participate.

Boy Scout Aviation Merit Badge Academics and Air Show Coordination is scheduled on 26 July from 0800 – 1200 and 27 July from 1300 – 1700 in the Operations Auditorium of the Montana Air National Guard. A Flight Schedule is yet to be determined, as we are working with the Experimental Aviation Association to include their “Young Eagles” program. Also, some Volunteer work can be done, i.e., setting up parking spaces, ramp set-up etc.

As for the Air Show itself, I’ve asked that the Scouts WORKING on their Merit badge be able to attend the pre-game show on Friday night and meet with the Blue Angels or other aviation professionals. Saturday and Sunday, Scout Volunteers may help by gathering and disposing of trash, running water to workers, acting as parking attendants, and ramp tear down.

Now for a kicker that will really please everyone; we can set up and manage a booth. There is some legal issues involved with selling stuff and I am awaiting info for review. However, we can use this as a recruiting tool. A couple adult Scouters, a couple Scouts (Tiger, Cub, Scouts and Venturers) and we can sign people up. I’m going to need help with this one, but we can feature a slide show, projects boys have done, a Kayak, other crafts, rockets, a nature board I need help with this one if anyone wants to help out it would be a great opportunity.

I will have more in the next couple days, so keep checking!!!
