2015 SUMMER TRAINING SUBMISSION OF INTEREST FORM

It's that time of year again! In order to find out what summer training Cadets are interested in 746 is asking all Cadets to complete the online form through the link below. Even if you are not interested in going to camp, please complete the form and select the item indicating that you do not wish to go to camp. Through this process we will be able to identify which summer training courses are most needed for 746 in the summer of 2015, and will be able to prioritize cadets for those spaces.

Remember that by indicating your interest it does not guarantee you a spot for camp. Also if you have not completed  your Annual Health Validation Form and returned it to the Administration Officer before the 25th of Nov 2014 then you will not be eligible to attend camp. Any questions can be directed to the Commanding Officer Capt Matt Dykeman.

Here is the link: http://goo.gl/forms/BIuAcqXjqh

All Interest Forms are to be submitted before the 15th of November 2014. Anyone who cannot complete the form online will be able to complete it in person at the Squadron, please talk to Capt Dykeman to arrange.

Farewell Maj Kelly


We would like to thank Major Sean Kelly for his years of faithful service with 746 Lightning Hawk Squadron. 

Maj Kelly has seen the Sqn transition through a number of Commanding Officers; been involved in relocating the Sqn several times and even a Sqn name change.  Whether it was his time as a Cadet; or volunteering when he was an MP; to enrolling as an Officer; and ultimately becoming the Commanding Officer, Maj Kelly always served 746 Sqn with honour and pride.  He routinely challenged his staff and Cadets to achieve their best, while providing guidance and mentorship along the way; this has led to the growth and continued success of the Sqn. 


We would like to thank Maj Kelly from the bottom of our hearts and wish him the best of luck at 204 Black Maria Sqn.  You will be missed.

Parking Lot Safety

Pickup time on Thursday night at cadets has become increasingly congested.  If possible, please try to park near the Museum of Flight or in the parking spots near the entrance to the airport.  Please do not pull into the driveway nearest the Hangar.  It is a very busy area with pedestrians.

Please keep your speed to a minimum.  It is quite dark in the area and there are many people walking to different areas.

Cadets please remember you are wearing dark clothing and are very hard to see on dark rainy nights.  Be aware of the vehicles around you and try to stay in lit areas.

The safety and well being of the Cadets is important.  Thank you for your cooperation.

New: Cadet Reference Manual

It is important for cadets to have access to the essential information that they need to perform the basic duties of a member of the Royal Canadian Air Cadet Program; and specifically 746 Lightning Hawk Squadron. As a result, the squadron has published a "Cadet Reference Manual" which contains all of the general knowledge that cadets are expected to know. This manual is an important resource. It's contents should be read and understood by all members of the squadron from the newest recruit to the most senior cadet.

The document is available in .pdf form and can be downloaded directly from the following link (Adobe Reader Required):

The manual is divided into 3 chapters:
  1. Drill
  2. General Cadet Knowledge, and
  3. Cadet Training
While we do not expect cadets to commit this information to memory, we do expect that cadets will reference the manual as often as required and search for answers to any questions first in the manual before using the chain of command. Cadets who would like to test their understanding of the manual's material are encouraged to take the optional "Comprehension Quiz" located at the following link: Comprehension Quiz.

Any questions about the Cadet Reference Manual should be addressed through the chain of command.
