Recruit night! Wednesday 6 Sept 2017! Interesting in joining or learning about air cadets? Come view a presentation and talk to the staff!
Create a life long experience that will stay with your child forever!
We accept new recruits throughout the training year (Sept - June!). We meet for regular training Wed evenings, 6:30-9:30pm, outside of holidays.
Interested in a future aviation career, or to grow your knowledge base in an air element? Air Cadets offers several fields of study from Aerodromes, Navigation, Citizenship, Principles of Flight, Power and Glider Flying Scholarships, to paid summer camps and more!
The best part for parents is that Air Cadets is FREE TO JOIN!
Air Cadets offers youth aged 12-18 the opportunity to learn, to serve, and to advance themselves at their own pace. Summer courses are also available in various fields of study. They are held on Canadian Forces Air Force Bases throughout Ontario, and offer a fantastic experience to not only learn new things, but to meet other people with similar interests. Cadets attending summer couses also get remunerated for their time!
At 822 Squadron we offer several optional programs. Our regular training is every Wednesday evening throughout the school year (except holidays) from 6:30 - 9:30pm.
Cadets who are older and wish to join, there is a FastTrack program that will bring them up to speed so they can stay among cadets their own age. Each year in cadets is represented by a level. First year cadets is level 1, second year is level 2, and so on. Level five is the highest achieveable level. In level three, cadets get more involved with drill, aviation studies, leadership and instructional techniques. This is also a great way to accumulate community service hours for High School Credit.
Optional Activities include: Band - Pipes & Drums (Provincial Competition available) Flag Party Honour Guard Range (Provincial Competition available) Effective Speaking/Debate Team (Provincial Competition available) Drill Team (Provincial Competition available) Aerospace - only facility in Canada that offers such a program!
If your son/daughter is interested in becoming an 822 Air Cadet, or if you have any questions please contact Officer Cadet Brian Wilson via the phone number on this page, reply to this post, or better yet, come visit us on any Wednesday night (except holidays!) between 6:30-9:30pm starting 9 SEPT 2015!
The worst thing I hear graduated Air Cadets say is that they didn't join soon enough!
Cadets offers military based training in drill, dress, and deportment. Cadets is supervised by seasoned Canadian Forces Reserve Officers and volunteers. Many of our volunteers specialize in areas of aviation and aerospace studies.
We're located at the Cadet Youth Development Centre, at the Waterloo International Airport off of Fountrain St N, Breslau, ON. Upon entering the Airport, we are located in the second building to the left.
