The Program

Cadets is a program for young Canadians ages 12 to 18 who are interested in participating in a variety of challenging and rewarding activities, and learn more about the Canadian Forces.

Air Cadets learn about the traditions of the Royal Canadian Air Force, and participate in aerospace-related activities. Air Cadets have the opportunity 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 aviation-related careers, while others choose to pursue flying as an enjoyable life-long hobby.

While aviation is one of the main aspects specific to the air element, the program also offers training towards a variety of fields including survival, athleticism, music, marksmanship, and much more. Air cadets also focuses on developing leadership, through confidence building activities and practical experience. These young leaders gain responsibilities and a trusted position within the hierarchy of the squadron.

Most of the fundamentals of of the program are taught during regular weekly meetings, with emphasis given during extra activities. These may include "Weekend Activities" such as drill team practice, to a Remembrance Day ceremony, or even meeting accomplished former air cadets or figures such as the Governor General. There are so many unique ways that Air Cadets learn about their country, about leadership, about aerospace and about themselves, that the program is limitless in the opportunities it provides.

The most popular and reinforcing opportunity available in Air Cadets is going to summer camp. Air Cadet summer camps are not just your regular day camp. Ranging from 2 weeks to 7 weeks long, cadets may participate in a wide variety of camps at different levels and in a subject that interest them. Among the courses available are the Basic Course, meant for newer cadets; the Introductions to Leadership, Survival, Physical and Recreational Training, Instruction, Aviation, and Aerospace; the more advanced camps such as the Drill and Ceremonial course, the Survival Instructor course, the Athletic Instructor course, the Glider Pilot and Power Pilot scholarships, and the International Air Cadet Exchange. At camp, Air Cadets learn and live in a Summer Training Centre, where they meet tons of new friends, experience the "best times of their lives" and gain experience that will never be lost.
