Pilot Training Achievement Awards
Applications are due by the end of October for the Pilot Training Achievement Awards, given to select graduates of the Air Cadet Flying and Gliding Scholarship Program.

Eligible cadets should review and fill out the application form and submit it to the squadron training officer.

It's time to start working on applications for scholarship courses! Gliding and power pilot courses, international exchange, advanced aerospace, and advanced aviation (airport operations or aircraft maintenance) all have a highly competitive selection process that starts with application submissions at the end of November. Cadets wishing to apply for any of these courses should start preparing your applications, including resume, cover letter, and Transport Canada medical certification (for pilot training) now. Please check the preparation guide for eligibility requirements and see the squadron training officer for further details.
