223 Red Lion Air Cadets

Air Cadets learn about the traditions of the Royal Canadian Air Force, and participate in flight-related activities. Air Cadets have a chance to earn their civilian pilot licenses through the Air Cadet program.

Gliding is one of the more popular aspects of the Air Cadets and it provides a solid base for learning how to pilot more complicated aircraft.

Many Air Cadets go on to enjoy civilian flying careers, while others choose to pursue flying as an enjoyable life-long hobby.
Air Cadet Training is divided into five proficiency levels, including on-the-job training for senior cadets. Some of the courses offered to Air Cadets at the local level are:

  • aeronautical facilities
  • aircraft identification
  • aircrew survival
  • airframe structure
  • citizenship
  • drill
  • effective speaking
  • general cadet knowledge
  • physical fitness
  • sensible living
  • marksmanship
  • principles of flight
  • propulsion
  • radio communication
