The 2020/2021 Training Year is over. 140 Aurora Sqn is standing down until 7 Sep 21.
Congratulations on choosing to join 140 Aurora Squadron. The Squadron has over 30 years of successful training for hundreds of young men and women. We're looking forward to welcoming you.
Training is currently being conducted virtually. Links to virtual training are
communicated by Flight Commanders. Training will be different this year, but we promise that it will be a fun and educational year.
140 Aurora Squadron accepts new recruits throughout the year. We welcome everyone and will contact you as soon as we receive an application.
No one can access our Google drive if they have recently used their York District School Board e-mail. It is not a problem on our end -- the school board won't allow it.
Access is open to anyone with the link. Please do not request access on the form. Before accessing our Google drive, please clear their device's cache or use a private browser.
Questions? Contact CI G. Waller @firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please download the application package and print, complete and sign. The application form is in Legal sized format. If you can't print on Legal, please scale for Letter size and print.
Please send scanned copies of the application package, the cadet's health card and passport/birth certificate to our Administration Officer at email@example.com.
Training covers a whole range of subjects, including citizenship, aviation, sports, marksmanship and so much more.
Usually, weekly optional training on Thursdays includes Band, marksmanship, biathlon, drill team and more. Obviously during the current situation, training will be different. We will communicated how these events may happen, in the next several weeks.
Ground School -- 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.
