Aviation headset manufacturer Sennheiser was formally recognized by the
Florida Wing of Civil Air Patrol (FL CAP) earlier this month for
donating a range of aviation headsets valued at approximately $20,000.
The headsets, which will be put into rotation by FL CAP's flight
familiarization program, will be used by more than 1,800 cadets pursuing
careers in aviation and distributed to Civil Air Patrol squadrons
With more than
3,800 members, the Florida Wing is the largest CAP wing and the third
most active. During the last year, the Wing has seen its cadet count
increase by more than 10 percent to roughly 1,860. The new headsets play
an important role in equipping FL CAP's student outreach program.
In addition to the cadet program, Civil Air Patrol's missions include emergency services and aviation education. Since 1941, volunteer airmen of CAP -- the U.S. Air Force's volunteer, civilian auxiliary -- have performed search-and-rescue, civil defense and homeland security tasks.
Col. Chris Moersch, the Florida Wing commander, commented: "I certainly
want to thank Sennheiser for their support of our Cadet Orientation
Program. Their contribution not only significantly contributes to our
program, it also demonstrates their commitment to both general aviation
and our nation's youth."
Lt. Col. Arnie Glauser, who coordinated the Sennheiser presentation,
added: "We met Sennheiser's David Dunlap at the annual SUN 'n FUN Fly-In
David Dunlap, Sennheiser Aviation, commented: "It is an honor to be
associated with and recognized by the FL CAP. By making a donation such

critical role it plays, as well as our passion and expertise in aviation
headset technology. We hope to see many more cadets enroll in programs
such as this."
