The Orange County Cadet Squadron is pleased to welcome Captain Karen Kahn Pilot & Author Presenting “Turning Pro…Have You Got What It Takes”

Captain Kahn has been actively involved in the aviation industry for 50+ years. A pioneer in her field, she was one of the first female pilots hired by a major US airline.

Prior to starting her airline career in 1977, she instructed at the Sierra Academy in Northern California and operated her own weekend ground school teaching Private, Commercial and Instrument courses.

She holds an Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) certificate, including type ratings on the Boeing 757/767, McDonnell-Douglas MD-80. She was the first woman to be type-rated in a Lockheed JetStar.

Her other ratings include: CFII MEI, Flight Engineer, Turbojet, Seaplane, Helicopter (IFR), and has qualified seven times for the Master CFI (now Emeritus) designation.

As an author, speaker and career counselor, Captain Kahn also specializes in helping pilots improve their career preparation.

More recently she has expanded her business to provide career development beyond aviation.

Her book “Flight Guide for Success: Tips and Tricks for the Aspiring Airline Pilot” is the basis for her career counseling sessions and the basis for her presentation.

 

Please come prepared with questions.

 

Regards,

C/1st Lt LaCombe

NY030 Cadets Compete in Cyber Security Competition

posted in: General info | 0

Cadets from the Civil Air Patrol Orange County Squadron recently tested their ability to defend a computer network against cyber-attacks.

The National Youth Cyber Defense Competition is known as CyberPatriot.  It was created by the Air Force Association (AFA) to inspire K-12 students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation’s future. 

The Orange County cadets earned 212 of a possible 300 points in the competition.  The local cadets placed in 3rd out of 9 New York Civil Air Patrol teams. 

“Preparing for the competition taught us invaluable skills to protect our homes and squadron from cyber-attacks” said Team Captain and Squadron Cadet Commander Cadet 1st Lieutenant Brian Connell. 

CyberPatriot’s National Youth Cyber Defense Competition challenges teams of high school and middle school students to find and fix cybersecurity vulnerabilities in virtual operating systems. Using a proprietary competition system, teams are scored on how secure they make the system. Top teams advance through the online round of competition, and the best of the best advance to the in-person National Finals Competition.

The national youth cyber defense competition is an online, tournament-structured event in which teams of 2-6 students are scored on how well they identify and secure known vulnerabilities on a virtual network. Through a partnership with Cisco, they are also tested on a networking curriculum and are required to build secure, virtual networks. All rounds of competition, except for the National Finals Competition, take place online

Cisco defines Cybersecurity as the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks. These cyberattacks are usually aimed at accessing, changing, or destroying sensitive information; extorting money from users; or interrupting normal business processes.

CyberPatriot, the nation’s largest and fastest growing youth cyber education program, is AFA’s flagship STEM program dedicated to strengthening cyber skills among students. The program features the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition for high school and middle school students, AFA CyberCamps, and an Elementary School Cyber Education Initiative.
