The WASP Way

The Squadron operates the AT-6 Nella. She appears with the AirPower History Tour, WASP Homecoming, selected events, offers rides as well as training time for those qualified. The Squadron Education efforts involve classes as well as event appearances, following a specified Curriculum based on the SPUNKY guidelines for success.

The CAF WASP Squadron are CAF members that drive educational outreach programs using a three-tiered approach to inspire, aspire and mentor, focused on the WASP Guiding Principles: “be SPUNKY” – Be Self Confident, Be Positive, Be Unstoppable, Be Nice, Be Knowledgeable and Be Yourself. The Squadron creates and implements experiential educational programs focused on the WASP Guiding Principles, in support of education efforts surrounding Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) and historical events honoring veterans.

Nella’s radios are in need of upgrading. Why?

  • Clarity of transmission matters to the pilot and the rider, as well as ATC and surrounding aircraft
  • She’s touring extensively, providing rides at an unprecedented level
  • She sees more traffic
  • GPS can now be  integrated
  • Weather always matters
  • Pilots could use a power supply for their tablets, adding even more awareness/capability

Help us get there!
