March 30, 2012 - PRLog -- RENO Nev: The Nevada Wing of Civil Air Patrol demonstrated its commitment to excellence by achieving a grade of Highly Successful in the 2012 United States Air Force / Civil Air Patrol Compliance Inspection.  The inspection took place at the new Wing Headquarters building on Rock Blvd during the weekend of  24-26 March 2012.  The inspection checks the Wing’s mission critical readiness and organization effectiveness and efficiency. The inspection also looks at the ability of the Wing to manage and implement all three of Civil Air Patrol’s chartered missions, Emergency Services, Aerospace Education and Cadet Programs.

There are four possible grades in a Wing Compliance Inspection; highly successful, successful, marginal, unsatisfactory.   Highly Successful marks  that the unit’s performance or operations exceed mission requirements; the unit goes above and beyond standards.  Successful grades means the unit meets standards. Inspectors from the US Air Force, Civil Air Patrol Pacific Region, and other Wings from around the country as far away as Vermont came and viewed the Wing Staff in action. Everything from tire pressure in the Wing vans to the Facebook page were scrutinized.

Overall the wing achieved a grade of Highly Successful. In addition, the following Wing divisions received grades of Highly Successful; Aerospace Education, Cadet Programs, Mission Support and Command.  Eight departments also received Highly Successful grades; Aircraft Management, Finance, Public Affairs, Supply, Transportation, Commander, Safety, and Inspector General.  There were four Benchmark Candidates and thirty nine Commendable notations on the report.

The Nevada Wing Civil Air Patrol continues its service to the people of Nevada and the United States through squadrons over the entire state. For more information about the Civil Air Patrol, call the Nevada Wing Civil Air Patrol 775-358-3700. Find us on the web at or find us on Facebook
