The Wynyard Air Cadets is a youth program for people aged 12 – 18; administered by the Canadian Forces and funded through the Dept of National Defence. We meet Wednesday nights Sept – May at 7:00 pm at the Wynyard Composite High School gymnasium, with our office located in the gym. We have an active parent committee which meets the first Wednesday of each month in the school library. This committee works closely with the Officers to plan events and activities and we initiate various fund raising activties through out the year. Senior cadets teach a variety of skills that they have learned at summer camps; such as survival, drill, flight training and ground school, as well as weekly activities like archery and flight simulator training. Through out the year cadets take part in the Remembrance Day Service, poppy drive with the Legion, public speaking events, sports weekends, Saskadet Camp, gliding, familiarization flying and various fund raising events sponsored by the parent committee. Cadets have the opportunity to take trips and attend a variety of summer camps from general training to gliding and power scholarships. They learn valuable life and work skills like teamwork, leadership, and citizenship. Cadets also reap the personal benefits of increased self-confidence and physical fitness, learning how to take initiative, and how to make decisions. There is no registration fee or cost to join - all we ask is a willingness to learn, cooperate and have fun.
