20 March 2023
Hello 809. I hope everyone had a great March Break. I’d like to thank all the cadets, staff and SSC members that took part in bowling last Wednesday, and also to everyone who attended the showing of “Devotion” we had last Monday.
This week, the Warrant Officers will be undergoing the Cadet Fitness Assessment, while the rest of the squadron will be going over aircraft engines with our guest, former WO1 Spencer Abt. He’s currently at Canadore College becoming and air craft mechanic and has brought down an engine to show you. He’ll have tools with him and you’ll be able to tinker with the engine under his supervision.
