If you're an FAA-licensed pilot in Washington State - be it Private, Commercial or even ATP - and are looking for ways to get involved in flying for CAP then you've come to the right place! Even if you already are a CAP pilot in one capacity or another, you may find some of the information useful.
On this page you will find links to resources (click / tap on the images to get to them) that help you:
Understand the various pilot roles and how to achieve them
(TIP: In addition to regular underlined hyperlinks, many of the images / diagrams in these slides are also opening the web resources they refer to - make sure to try clicking / tapping on those as well!)

How to find a CAP CFI or Check Pilot:
In eServices, get a list of qualified and current (Active) CAP CFIs / Check Pilots by going to Ops Quals ➔ Reports ➔ Specific Qualification Listing
Search scope defaults to your squadron, but you can change it by clicking on the blue arrow and entering PCR-WA - this will give you choices of neighbor squadrons as well
Under Qualification, choose the Instructor Pilot or Check Pilot type(s) you're looking for
Under Limit Results To check Active (and Include Contact Report to receive a second file containing info on how to contact the listed CAP members)
Click the View Report button - this will generate and download a file
Contact resulting individuals by e-mail or phone, and take things from there!
The previous list of CFIs and Check Pilots has been removed as it was too awkward to keep it up-to-date. It's much more effective to understand how active individuals can be found by members seeking CAP pilot training or checkrides.
This PDF document crafted by Capt. Andy McDonald of the Fort Vancouver Composite Squadron describes how you can take advantage of the FAA Wings program to get credit for CAP flying activity towards a Flight Review (formerly known as BFR), and you can use CAP Form 5 activity and FAA Wings to do several things, including renewing a Flight Review, updating CAP Safety Training credit, and even updating CFII quals (if you are a CAP Check Pilot).
The current standard refueling level for C/T182 is 64 gals, and for C172 it's 44 gals of 100LL.
Please always use the measure stick to determine how much fuel is missing in each tank when you buy fuel to restore standard refueling levels - do not just request bottom of filler tabs or similar methods as they tend to be anything but precise.
