Summer Training Update

Good morning.

We’ve received itineraries for cadets travelling to CTC Trenton next weekend and have sent them out. We’re still waiting on itineraries for the other centres, but expect to have them by the end of the day.

Good evening.

As requested, here is the full Summer Training presentation from the 30 May Parent Briefing, edited to account for out-of-date information. For future reference, all Summer Training information can be found on the web site under the Resources > Cadets > Summer Training menu.

Summer Training Sessions

A number of cadets and parents have been asking what the session dates are for their summer training courses. Rather than answer each request individually, I have posted them to the web site. Please remember to log in to the site in order to see the information you’re looking for.

Summer Training

Good morning.

I’ve attached the links to the Parent Briefing given on our last training day, along with the associated Joining Instructions for each Cadet Training Centre. I’m still working on finding detailed instructions for CTC Saint-Jean’s Advanced Aerospace Course, but the basics can be found in the linked Information Booklet for the Eastern Region. I will update everyone with more detailed information as soon as I have it.

Also, we’re expecting to receive movement instructions with specific dates and times over the next week. Nothing has been posted yet, but these will be transmitted as soon as they arrive.

Summer Training Schedule

Last night, a few parents/guardians were asking about the timings for the different summer training courses. In previous years, we were always scheduled for the last intake of the summer and timings could be more easily predicted. This year, with our unit’s supervision moving from the Southwestern Ontario Area to the Niagara to the Greater Toronto Area, the schedules are a bit more unpredictable. All of the timings for the courses announced last night are posted below:

Basic Aviation Course (BAC) – CTC Trenton – 2018/7/9-2018/7/27
Basic Aviation Technology and Aerospace Course (BATAC) – CTC Trenton – 2018/7/9-2018/7/27
Basic Survival Course – CTC Blackdown – 2018/7/30-2018/8/16
Air Rifle Marksmanship Instructor Course – CTC Connaught – 2018/7/9-2018/8/17
Survival Instructor Course (SIC) – CTC Blackdown – 2018/7/9-2018/8/16
Staff, Advanced Aerospace Course (SC/CC AASC) – CTC St-Jean – 2018/6/26-2018/8/14

Although our final acceptance list isn’t in yet, it looks like our intake for the two-week General Training course for first year cadets will be 2018/7/23-2017/8/3 at CTC Trenton.

Ground School for Summer Pilot Training Courses

FLYING SCHOLARSHIP 2018 APPLICANTS: 809 Cadets who are eligible to participate (age 15 for Glider, age 16 for Power), and have transportation to Fort Erie (beginning tomorrow), are to contact Capt Palumbo TONIGHT.

337 and 79 are joining forces to provide their gliding and flying scholarship candidates with a ground school program and we would like to extend an invitation to all NAG Squadrons.  I am aware that some squadrons may already have other arrangements, but if you don’t please fell free to join us.

We are asking that cadets who attend be eligible to apply for a gliding or flying scholarship this training year, and come prepared with sufficient note taking materials (paper, pens, etc.) and a package of cue/index/recipe cards.

  • Date: Thursdays (beginning this week)
  • Time: 1900-2100
  • Location: 337 LHQ – Fort Erie Leisureplex Lions Banquet Hall, 3 Municipal Centre Drive, Fort Erie

I am asking that you respond only if you have cadets who would be attending and let us know numbers so that we can ensure we have the proper meeting space available.

I also would like to take this opportunity to thank those cadet flying site and squadron staff who were carrying the torch of the NAG ground school for the past years.  Your hard work and dedication to our cadets is appreciated.
