September 2019 Start-up Information

As September approaches, it’s time to start thinking about Air Cadets again! Below is information for returning cadets as well as new recruits.

Returning Cadets

All cadets who were registered with 37 Squadron last year or who are transfering in from another squadron are to attend a welcome back evening and BBQ at the legion on 5 September at 7PM.

Cadets are asked to wear their uniform and bring any pieces that do not fit. Be ready to check your cadet records and update any changes in information. We will also be taking a photo of each cadet in uniform and emailing families the photo.

Please note that this evening is ONLY for registered cadets and not new recruits.

Parades

SERVICE

As cadets, youth have opportunities to support their communities through involvement such as parades, guards and other community service events.  Many cadets achieve their high school volunteer hours in one year.

Gliders

Flying Opportunities

Cadets have the opportunity to fly each year.  Those who are interested are able to pursue glider and power pilot training for free through the program.  As there is a projected shortage of pilots in the near future, this training can be a step towards a rewarding career in aviation!

Learn to Fly with the Air Cadets

Air Cadets aged 17-18, at level 4 and in Grade 10 minimum, apply and are interviewed to participate in our 7-week course.  This course includes ground school and in-flight instruction at one of 5 civilian flight Centres across Ontario.

The successful Air Cadets who obtain his or her pilot’s licence have gone on to fly with commercial airlines, with Canadian Forces, courier and charter companies, as instructors at flight schools, or simply continue flying for their own pleasure.  The opportunity to earn a private pilots licence through our program at no cost – valued at $15,000 – remains one of the most attractive benefits available to young people who join Air Cadets.
