ACP Monthly Meeting
Date & Time: Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014 11:30AM - 3:00PM
Location: US Coast Guard Air Station, 15100 Rescue Way, Clearwater, FL 33762. (727)535-1437
This month's meeting is a very unique opportunity for ACP members. Lt. Dan DeAngelo will host a tour of the US Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater, which will include the ability to board and explore their search and rescue helicopters and C130 aircraft. We will also tour their operations center and will have an opportunity to have lunch in the base cafeteria. Each ACP member will need to pay for their own lunch at the base, which will be approximately $5 per person.
Since we will be climbing in and out of aircraft, it is recommend that members dress casually with comfortable shoes. Ladies should consider wearing pants and refrain from wearing high heeled shoes. Additionally, the US Coast Guard requires that in order to gain entry, each ACP member must provide their date of birth and answer whether they are a US citizen or not. You will not be allowed entry to the base without first supplying this information. These questions have been added to the registration form. A list of attendees will be provided to the base prior to the meeting.
When you arrive at the Coast Guard Air Station, your identify will be cross-checked with the ACP registration list - BE SURE TO PRE-REGISTER! Otherwise, you will be denied entry. From there, you will be directed to the base cafeteria where lunch is held (~$5/pp) and we will meet Lt. DeAngelo. Following lunch, we will head to a briefing room where we will hear an overview of the Coast Guard and base operations. Then it's out to the airfield to see the SAR helicopters and C130 aircraft. Afterwards, it may be possible to have a brief chat with a rescue swimmer and see a briefing area.
This is an exciting opportunity that should not be missed!
