Ok FSgt Vidal, Time to do some of that Pilot stuff….

We’ve heard from FSgt Vidal.   Sounds like he’s doing well (but tired).  He’s busy writing exams and flying.   There have been some delays due to weather, but expects to solo next week.   Good luck FSgt Vidal!

For some more news from the CTC’s our cadets are attending, please have a look at our Facebook page:

Correction: Canada’s Wonderland Excursion – Saturday May 28 0745hrs – 2000hrs

For everyone going on the Wonderland excursion on Saturday morning, just a reminder of a few items:

  1. Be at the Squadron Headquarters no later than 0745.   We expect to return to by around 2000 (8pm).
  2. Dress in civilian attire, appropriate for the weather.   Right now, the forecast is showing as Sunny with a temperature of about 20degrees.  You may want to bring some sunscreen.
  3. Bring spending money with you.   The squadron is covering your travel, entry into the park, fast passes for the day, lunch and a refillable drink.   Anything beyond this is your responsibility.
  4. Bring your facemask.   As a cadet, you’ll be required to where this throughout the day.
  5. Bring your health card – Very important.    You can’t attend if you don’t have this with you.

For those of you that did sign up, see you Saturday AM.

Lt Couroux,
