Drill

Responsible Officer

CI Mélissa Mathieu

Objective

Improvement and putting into practice the knowledge of all individual and squad (flight) drill movements executed by the Air Cadets.

Preparation and practice of a choreography (a compulsory sequence with words of command and a silent choreographed sequence) towards the end year drill competition.


Description

Drill is an important part of cadet training. Drill promotes discipline, alertness, precision, pride, steadiness, and the cohesion necessary for success within a group.

From a leadership perspective, drill is an excellent vehicle to help enhance some personal attributes. A senior cadet’s assertiveness, confidence in his/her abilities while speaking in front of a group, and supervisory skills while correcting personnel on their dress and personal drill all benefit from drill instruction.
