Civil Air Patrol SAREX
On August 19, 2017, Military Machines of American Freedom teamed with the Civil Air Patrol, Tallahassee Composite Squadron, to conduct a Search and Rescue Exercise in Quincy, Florida. Military Machines of American Freedom provided our OH6 helicopter, which is under restoration, to use as a downed aircraft. An Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) was activated near by the helicopter for direction finding by the CAP airplane and ground crews. Military Machines of American Freedom also provided "victims" with various injuries so they could be triaged by the responders. The Leon County Sheriff's Office also participated with an agency helicopter to practice inter-operability of communications using the Florida SLERS radio system.
