Early February, our Level 4s and 5s participated in our annual Senior Cadet Professional Development weekend!

We had the honour of having Lieutenant (Navy) Hart, an Instructor with the Regional Cadet Instructor School (RCIS) Central, teach our Senior Cadets.

In his role as an RCIS Central Instructor, he teaches brand new CIC Officers how to be an effective leader and instructor within the Cadet Program. These same lessons were taught to our Senior Cadets, ensuring that the level of instruction we have on our Training Nights is of the highest standard!

Lt(N) Hart taught many engaging lessons about mentoring, goal setting, types of learning styles, and much more! We had our Seniors participating in many fun team building actives as well, which helped build moral and encouraged #540bonding!

Thank you to all our local sponsors who helped make this night happen! And a big shout out to MPP Effie Triantafilopoulos and MPP Stephen Crawford for your continued support to Oakvilleโ€™s finest youth!

Royal Canadian Air Force // Cadets Canada // Ontario CadetsOn this day in history: February 7, 1964 - It is announced that the RCAF's aerobatic team, the Golden Hawks, would be disbanded.

Did you know the Golden Hawks were formed in 1959 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of powered flight in Canada as well as the 35th anniversary of the RCAF? Their popularity and the support of the Chief of the Air Staff extended their existence.

The team performed 317 shows until the team wrapped up in 1963 with a final show in Montreal, Quebec. Flying gilded F-86 Sabres, they captivated audiences by flying low, sliding back their canopies and waving at the crowd. Thatโ€™s showmanship!

We had the honour of having Lieutenant Commander (LCdr) Dermott, Commanding Officer of Trenton Cadets, act as our Reviewing Officer for our February COโ€™s parade!

LCdr Dermott helped out with our WO2 Merit Review Board process at the beginning of January and wanted to see it through by handing out the rank to the successful cadets. 540 saw an addition of 7 WO2s!

Our #540Family grew a little bit bigger last night as well! Maj LaCombe swore-in all our brand new cadets after having graduated from the recruit program.

Congratulations to all our Level 1s that were promoted for the very first time to Leading Air Cadet (LAC)!

There was also a bitter-sweet moment last night when we had to say bye to the Dawrant siblings, as they will be leaving 540 to go join our friends at 715 'Mohawk' Squadron in Burlington. We wish them well at their new home and know that you will make us #540Proud!

#FunFact LCdr Dermott used to be an Officer at 540 Sqn back when we only had 65 cadets!

Over the past two weeks, each Cadet at 540 must complete a Cadet Fitness Assessment (CFA) as a part of their training.

The CFA is led by our Senior Cadets, and consists of a 20-meter shuttle run, push-ups, crunches, and two flexibility tests.

The assessment is scored based on the age and gender of the participant, giving the cadets the opportunity to earn a Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Excellent fitness badges that they can proudly wear on their uniforms. #540proud

Royal Canadian Air Force // Cadets Canada // Ontario CadetsOn this day in history: February 7, 1964 - It is announced that the RCAF's aerobatic team, the Golden Hawks, would be disbanded.

Did you know the Golden Hawks were formed in 1959 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of powered flight in Canada as well as the 35th anniversary of the RCAF? Their popularity and the support of the Chief of the Air Staff extended their existence.

The team performed 317 shows until the team wrapped up in 1963 with a final show in Montreal, Quebec. Flying gilded F-86 Sabres, they captivated audiences by flying low, sliding back their canopies and waving at the crowd. Thatโ€™s showmanship!

We had the honour of having Lieutenant Commander (LCdr) Dermott, Commanding Officer of Trenton Cadets, act as our Reviewing Officer for our February COโ€™s parade!

LCdr Dermott helped out with our WO2 Merit Review Board process at the beginning of January and wanted to see it through by handing out the rank to the successful cadets. 540 saw an addition of 7 WO2s!

Our #540Family grew a little bit bigger last night as well! Maj LaCombe swore-in all our brand new cadets after having graduated from the recruit program.

Congratulations to all our Level 1s that were promoted for the very first time to Leading Air Cadet (LAC)!

There was also a bitter-sweet moment last night when we had to say bye to the Dawrant siblings, as they will be leaving 540 to go join our friends at 715 'Mohawk' Squadron in Burlington. We wish them well at their new home and know that you will make us #540Proud!

#FunFact LCdr Dermott used to be an Officer at 540 Sqn back when we only had 65 cadets!
