It is our mission to prevent accidents and mishaps that would result in property damage, and more importantly to prevent injury or fatality to a member or civilian.  Safety Prevention and Safety Education go hand in hand.

Vehicle Operator Safety

"Oh, I'm a safe's the other guy you have to worry about...".  Accidents happen.  Preventing Accidents must happen as well.  Just as a pilot will check out his or her aircraft prior to flight, a Vehicle Operator must take the same care to inspect their vehicle for mechanical issues that may cause an accident to occur.  Likewise, a pilot is always aware of their surroundings, the same must attentiveness the Vehicle Operator must exhibit as well.

Our Mission

It is the goal of the Wing Transportation Directorate to educate and promote vehicle safety within the Virginia Wing of the Civil Air Patrol.
