Training nights begin with an opening parade and attendance. Cadets will then take part in various classes and activities. The night will conclude with a closing parade and announcements.
Fees and Fundraising
All training is provided free of charge as is a uniform worth several hundred dollars. Families are asked to support our program through various fundraising activities including the Air Cadet Lottery.
Uniforms are provided free of charge including exchanges as cadets grow. Cadets are expected to maintain their uniforms and return them upon leaving the program. The Supply page will contain information on ordering, exchanging and maintaining uniforms.
There are several opportunities for Summer Training from the two week General Training Course up to six week flying scholarships and international exchanges. All Summer training is free of charge and cadets earn a training bonus of $60 per week during these camps. Detailed criteria for the courses will be posted on the site later in the year.
