Air Cadet Summer Training Program
Summer training occurs for 6 weeks from mid July to mid August. Due to the different duration of the courses offered, there are different intakes for each course. An example would the Basic Training Course that is 2 weeks in duration and will thus have 3 separate intakes during the summer. For Basic Aviation, since it is 3 weeks in duration, there will be 2 intakes. Each intake begins at different times and the squadron has no control of which intake your child will be participating in. Your Cadet will only be eligible for ONE course per summer.
Due to this restriction, when applying for summer training, your child MUST be available for the entire duration of the course.
