  Section  1.  Short title. This act shall be known and may be cited and
referred to as the "New York state civil air patrol act".
  S 2. Declaration of purposes and findings. The legislature  finds  and
declares  that  by  act  of  the eightieth congress (Public Law 557) the
civil air patrol was designated as the civilian auxiliary of the  United
States air force; that the secretary of said air force was authorized to
direct  the  civil  air  patrol  to perform certain non-combatant flying
missions in the interest of national defense  and  the  public  welfare;
that civil air patrol volunteers fly approximately seventy-eight percent
of  the total hours and continental limits of the United States (and all
search and rescue missions in the state of New York); that  in  addition
to its search and rescue operations, ground observer corps missions, and
radar  flight  tests, the civil air patrol engages in missions involving
the patrol of forests,  pipelines,  flooded  areas  and  other  disaster
areas,  and  in  the transportation of critical parts and supplies; that
the civil air patrol is engaged in the pre-flight training  of  fourteen
to eighteen year old boys and girls; that the New York wing of civil air
patrol  has  at  its disposal hundreds of trained and licensed aeroplane
pilots and observers as well as hundreds of privately-owned and  govern-
ment  "on  loan"  aircraft,  as  well as communication facilities, power
plants and mobile equipment, together with a trained staff  of  communi-
cation  personnel;  that the services and equipment of the New York wing
of civil air patrol have been and are available for use by the state  of
New  York  in  missions assisting civil defense and any other mission in
the interest of the public safety, health and general welfare and should
be utilized to their maximum extent; that the utilization of the trained
