FLIGHT SCHOLARSHIP - GROUND SCHOOL

Learn to Fly!

Flight training is perhaps the most iconic and sought-after element of the Air Cadet program.  There are two streams to the flight training program - gliding, and powered flight.

In order to qualify for either, the cadet must meet certain requirements of age and training level at the home unit.  The cadet must also pass a national exam and interview process, usually held in January or February.  The objective of the Squadron Ground School program is to prepare applicants for this process, by providing the theoretical knowledge and skills they need to qualify for a Flying Scholarship course.

Those cadets selected through national exams and interviews are sent to a CFTC (Cadet Flight Training Centre) in the summer, where they will attend classes, learn to fly, and work towards achieving their license.

The program is a strenuous one, requiring a significant amount of dedication on the part of the cadet.  More information is available by speaking to the Ground School Officer.
