140 Aurora Squadron accepts new recruits throughout the year.
Cadets are required to sell a book of Air Cadet League lottery tickets, which must be prepaid at $60 a book. In addition, the Squadron also charges an Assessment Fee of $70. This money goes back to the Air Cadet League.
Training covers a whole range of subjects, including citizenship, aviation, sports, marksmanship and so much more.
Weekly optional training on Thursdays includes Band, marksmanship, biathlon, drill team and more. For cadets who will be 16 before 1 September 2020, Ground School is an option, where cadets will receive instruction from a certified pilot in preparation for application for the Glider Pilot Scholarship or the Power Pilot Scholarship. Younger cadets may also be eligible to attend Ground School, but won't be able to apply until they are old enough.
That doesn't include events like Gliding, Field Training Exercises and other events. In the past we have visited Hamilton Warplane Museum, Billy Bishop Airport, and have travelled to Marine Corps Recruiting Base Parris Island, Washington and more.Here are some videos on the Air Cadet program.
