For those younger Cadets not eligible for writing their Glider or Power Pilot exam, they have a chance to learn about aviation topics in a fun setting by building radio controlled planes to fly, building and setting off rockets, and learning the laws of flight in a flight simulator. Check out the Squadron Calendar for activity dates and times!
The squadron provides ground school for those cadets who are interested (and eligible) in pursuing a flying course within the Air Cadet Gliding and Power Pilot Program. Annual scholarships for Glider and Power Pilot courses are available, and both are covered within the syllabus.
The course is based on the content of “From the Ground Up”. Cadets are encouraged to read the topics covered in class on their own to strengthen their knowledge base.
The course finishes with mock exams, followed by preparation for the provincial qualification exam. After the qualification exam, cadet are prepped for their Scholarship Board interview. The interviews are held and successful candidates are moved forward for potential selection as a Glider Pilot or Power Pilot recipient.
