The 58,000 members of the Civil Air Patrol fly more than 100,000 hours each year performing important missions. 

CAP Search & Rescue now encapsulates all aspects of real Civil Air Patrol missions including: what you are searching for, where it is located, if it has an Electronic Location Transmitter (ELT), the frequency and modulation of the ELT, the accuracy of the ELT, contents of the emergency kit (flares, smoke, etc) and the radio communication to signal the end of a mission. Combine this with authentic Civil Air Patrol-style search pattern flight plans and you have a completely portable search
mission, making it incredibly easy to build and install pre-built search missions for you to share, create challenges for yourself or for CAP training!
With the BONUS Edition, you'll fly these current and past CAP aircraft:
  • Cessna 182T with Garmin 1000 glass panel
  • Cessna C-172 Skyhawk
  • Maule MX-260
  • Gippsland GA8 Airvan
  • C185 Skywagon
  • DHC-2 Beaver
  • L-19 Bird Dog

From the Executive Staff of the Civil Air Patrol

  • "What a fabulous package Abacus has put together,” said CAP Executive Director Don Rowland, a former Air Force pilot. “In addition to being able to ‘pilot’ CAP’s new glass cockpit-equipped Cessna 182, users can also choose different search targets, such as a missing aircraft or a burning house, and different search locations. Bottom line is this new SAR module is going to be a great source of entertainment, as well as an awesome introductory training tool for CAP members.” 
  • “Civil Air Patrol’s partnership with Abacus has produced another first!” stated Civil Air Patrol National Commander Maj. Gen. Antonio J. Pineda. "Besides being able to fly the CAP colors in Microsoft Flight Simulator, owners of the new Civil Air Patrol Pilot Search & Rescue expansion package will be able to ‘fly’ realistic search and rescue missions. It’s an exciting development that bodes well for both organizations, especially when you consider this incredible add-on package will also help enhance public awareness of one of America’s premier volunteer organizations and provide tangible benefits to the CAP Cadet Program.”

Mission Builder - creates search and rescue operations
The Mission Builder was modeled from detailed Civil Air Patrol training documents to create a wide variety of authentic search and rescue scenarios. The Mission Builder has you:
  • Select a departure airport
  • Choose a search parameters - search pattern, track length and spacing, more
  • Position the search object and choose the ELT settings

The Mission Builder sets up the scenery in Flight Sim, writes a mission summary and creates a flight plan for your search and rescue operation. The 'CAP staff' then categorizes the search patterns into one of four types, based on the terrain, environment, and other characteristics:

  • Expanding Square
  • Sector
  • Parallel Track
  • Creeping Line

You then fly the mission in Flight Sim using the special DF (Direction Finder) and GPS gauges to locate the search object.
