Wing Commander’s Commentary
As we approach the end of the world in a few days…
;) Okay okay…Just kidding..
Thoughts of our members I’m sure are focused on
the holidays, whichever version you choose is fine with me, but the
holidays, and again we are reminded that safety has to be a paramount
conscious thought process.
We had an aircraft damaged while being washed.
Great work by a member but oh boy the consequences.
We had a member and his wife injured in a motorcycle accident.
Surgery and hospital time at this time of year?
I look at what our wing accomplishes on a daily
basis. What we do without
question 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
We stand ready to help those in need.
Unfortunately sometimes those in need are some of ours.
Everyday I see injuries and damage to aircraft and vehicles.
Some of it on the news, a lot of it up close and personal.
The calls I get from safety officers and squadron commanders are
not always fun conversations.
Our most valuable asset is our members.
We take care of each other all the time.
Lets make sure we take the time to take care of ourselves.
As I’ve stated before, we work hard, we play hard, and no one can
do this job better than the members of the Nevada Wing.
Take the time this season to be careful. Evaluate your actions,
plan your events, travel safely, and essentially perform an ORM on
everything you do.
Have a Merry Christmas, a wonderful Hanukkah, a
terrific form of whatever you believe in, but do it safely.

Nevada is the 7th largest state in the
nation, yet our population is only 45th.
I’m sure most of that population is here for exactly that
With 15 Squadrons the
wings performs missions for
and the nation everyday.
We excel at the three mandated missions of Cadet
Programs, Aerospace Education, and Emergency Services.
Our cadet program is growing so fast that it’s difficult
to keep track. Our
cadet membership has increased almost 70% in four years.
The Nevada Wing supports our citizens with
both membership and public service.
We have a 90 minute response time to any call for
emergencies, and we host the only fully self sustainable
Incident Command unit capable of flying anywhere in the 50
states with 4 hours notice.
During major troop deployments the Nevada
Wing plays host to thousands of military personnel in transit
providing areas for rest, relaxation, and food. This was fully demonstrated this past year when we
assisted with over 30,000 Marines passing through Nevada.
The Nevada Wing is in integral part of the
Aviation Nation Air Show at Nellis AFB each year.
We perform low altitude
surveys of restricted flight areas to keep our nations pilots
safe. We also
perform other support missions for the United States Military as
a true Auxiliary to the Air Force.
The Nevada Wing is now based at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport.
