Training:

Fall Field Training Exercise (FTX) Registration
 

The cadet training program requires air cadets to participate in one FTX activity per training year.
 

The aim of these exercises is to:

  • Instruct and review lessons taught to cadets during regular training nights and in previous FTXs;
  • Teach and demonstrate new survival skills;
  • Offer leadership opportunities to the Level 3, 4 and 5 cadets through lesson planning as well as leadership tasks; and
  • Provide an environment where squadron esprit-de-corps can be fostered.


The fall FTX is taking place in person October 14-16. It will be an overnight activity where cadets are dropped off at the museum on Friday at 6:30pm and picked up at the museum on Sunday at 4:30pm.

 

Cadets must register using the following EventBrite link:

What to bring:


Cadets must be dressed appropriately for outdoor weather, as we will not have access to an indoor facility during the day. Sleeping bags suitable for the weather will be provided. Do not forget to bring a reusable water bottle, labeled with your last name. Outdoor working gloves are suggested, but not required
 

Consult the FTX Order of Dress for a detailed list of items to bring.


Food:
 

Meals will be provided, but we ask that cadets arrive already having eaten dinner on Friday. We will host breakfast lunch and dinner on Saturday and Breakfast and lunch on Sunday. We must respect the facility, and as such, cadets will not be authorized to bring their own food or snacks. Cadets will be eating a combination of fresh food and military ration packs. Vegetarian options will be made available. If you have specific dietary concerns, please discuss them with your level officer.

 

In-person training procedures

 

All cadets and staff must comply with our in-person training procedures at all time. In the event cadets are disrupting training or putting others at risk, parents/guardians will be called and will need to pick up their cadet.
