Field Training Uniform

Here we are almost halfway through our semi-isolated summer and it’s time to start considering our new training year. Unfortunately, we don’t yet have full details on what things are going to look like when we start things up again, but we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we do.

One thing we do have is an update to our cadet uniforms. You have probably noticed that the Air Cadets are the only one of Canada’s DND-sponsored youth programs without a standard field training uniform. We do almost everything in our blues. This leads to a lot of uniform upkeep and a lack of identity when we’re doing out-of-uniform activities. This is about to change.

This training year, Air Cadets will be issued field training uniforms (FTUs) in which to do most of our day-to-day training. However, while public health measures remain to combat the spread and transmission of the COVID-19 virus, we are requesting your help to provide us with the measurements required to place the orders. In order to do that, we are asking you to consult the attached measuring instructions fill out the linked form as soon as possible.

  • This form should be completed with the assistance of an adult.
  • Individuals being measured should remove bulky items such as wallets and mobile phones from their pockets.
  • They should NOT stand at the “attention” position.
  • All measurements should be taken close but not too tight due to slight growth potential.

Please contact our Supply Officer, CV Dau, at supo@809cadets.ca if you have any questions.

Please note that you need to be logged into the site in order to access the form.
