CO’s Message

I’ve received a little bit of feedback concerning the L3/L4 Combined Aviation Subjects review and exam. There is some concern that this is a live exam and that there will be a pass/fail component to it. The cadet training program for the year has been concluded and all cadets have been given a passing mark for all components of this year’s training, so this is entirely optional, though encouraged. There are two purposes to what we’re doing with the L3/L4 Combined Aviation Subjects review and exam:

  1. Testing out the Classroom and Hangouts Meet functions for suitability for further unit training
  2. Providing an opportunity for the L3 and L4 cadets to challenge themselves and see how they would have done

The links to the review material were in the last week’s WRO and the first Q&A session will be at 1900 (7:00pm) on Wednesday night with the exam to follow at 1900 on 29 April.

If you’re interested in participating and haven’t done so already, please contact me so that you can be set up with an 809cadets.ca email address for joining the class.

Remember that we still have the Anniversary Pin competition underway. If you’ve got ideas and a little bit of spare time, we would love to see your ideas for celebrating our unit’s 50th anniversary next year. Here’s a link to the original post:

Anniversary Pin Competition

We’re also going to be proposing fun activities that we can do over the summer while we’re in isolation mode. Items being considered thus far:

  • Model aircraft competition
  • “Boots and a Movie” boot polishing and on-line hangout
  • Global scavenger hunt

Any new ideas for something you’d like to run for your fellow cadets are being wholeheartedly sought. Email me directly if you’ve got something you want to put forward.

Stay home. Stay safe.
