Camp/Supply Night

This Thursday July 3 there will be an info meeting for cadets and parents as well as Supply will be open to exchange/issue items for summer training.

To ensure this runs as quickly as possible cadets with last names:

A-L will go to Supply at 1900hrs
M-Z will go to hanger 5 from 1900hrs

Bring any items you wish to exchange for new sizes. Training will issue movement orders and answer questions.  Please see the joining instructions under the "Summer Training" tab.  You will need to print the JI's as there is a consent form that needs to be signed and taken to camp.  We will also be handing back the Offers of Participation as the cadets need to take those to camp with them as well.  

*Please note:  as soon as movement orders become available we will issue them out to the cadets as soon as we can.

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.

746 Social Media

Connecting with cadets, their parents, and the public has always been a priority for 746 Lightning Hawk. In an effort to improve accessibility of information, 746 is embracing the benefits of social media. Now you can "like" us on Facebook and/or "follow" us on Twitter. Here are the details:
We look forward to interacting with you online. We would like to remind cadets that, even online, they are  responsible for maintaining their professionalism. We also hope that you'll share any photos, stories, or kudos with us and help promote the squadron to the public.
