Phantom Flight Program Update
I want to reassure all cadets and parents that Phantom Flight is not being discontinued. Concerns have been raised about some activities in the program and these are being investigated.
Phantom Flight is a great and popular program and I want to see it continue. The pause in activities is temporary in order that we can ensure the safety of cadets.
