of the program
Each Air Cadet Squadron across Canada offers the same courses throughout the year (Mandatory Training Program). These weekly sessions run for approximately 30 weeks, in conjunction with the school year. Training is divided into 5 Levels, with cadets completing 1 Level per year. Courses vary from Aircrew Survival, Citizenship, Leadership, Navigation - to name but a few. For more detailed information on the National Training Program, visit the National Cadet Site.
At 690 Squadron, our Training is conducted Monday evenings at Félix-Leclerc High School. Our schedule offers additional monthly activities such as: Sports nights (basketball, cosom hockey, volleyball, dodgeball, soccer); Halloween Party, Beach Party & Wacky Sports Night, Movie Night and various tours. Listed above are the various activities that complement the theoretical material covered in these weekly session.
Due to the growing number of cadets, the Friday night program was revamped in 2002-2003. The result was an enormous success with as many as 90 cadets participating in the various activities on any given Friday Night. Our goal was simple - to provide a wide variety of different activities that would appeal to all of our cadets. Cadets are able to participate in activities pending their interest and availability. To provide an even further selection, the activities change 3-4 times throughout the year.
