Olympic Air Show 2015

Registration is now open!!

The Civil Air Patrol Camp for the Olympic Air Show for 2015 will be from 26-28 June.

The Olympic Air Show is an annual event organized by the Olympic Air Museum at the Olympia Municipal Airport (KOLM).  The South Sound Composite Squadron provides support for the Museum with Parking, crowd control, gate access, and forming a perimeter for Airlift Northwest.  It provides Civil Air Patrol an opportunity to practice all three of our missions.  Cadets have leadership opportunities as Division Supervisors and Team Leaders, as well as being able to provide support roles for Emergency Services tasks such as Safety, Radio Operators, and Mission Staff Assistants.  Our Aerospace Education mission is served through unique opportunities to talk to pilots and get up close and personal with many aspects of flight including aerodynamics, design, and aerospace careers.  It also supports our External AE goals by helping the Museum to educate the public safely and effectively.

Register here! Once your online registration is processed, you will receive an acceptance email with the required forms, packing list, and payment instructions. The cost for the event is $45. At least one working uniform (Battle Dress Uniform, Corporate Field Uniform, or Corporate Working Uniform) is required, along with an ANSI II safety vest. Even if you applied or were accepted as staff, you must still register!!

We are still looking for people to fill the vital roles needed to make this activity succeed. If you want to be part of the team, fill out an application form. The more people apply, the stronger our team will be! Senior Members can sign up here, and Cadets will sign up here. Note that this is not event registration.
