Sponsoring Committee Society Voting Membership


The 746 Sponsoring Committee Society is made up of the parents and guardians of cadets who are on the Squadron's active roster.  They need to update their records to ensure they have all current parents/guardians of cadets represented.  This is important as parents/guardians must have an application completed to be a member and to be able to vote on matters at upcoming general meetings.  The Sponsoring Committee is updating their Constitution and Bylaws and you will need to be registered with the Society if you wish to vote on this important matter. Please print the attached form, complete and sign it, and return it to the Squadron to the 746 Sponsor Committee Chair Mrs. Montano or Vice Chair Mr. Foster.

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.

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.

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.
