Our Level 2 cadets took a break from being Hawks this past training night to be more like Raptors🦖

As one of the aims of the Cadet Program, there’s no better way to promote physical fitness than through a friendly competition of Basketball! 🏀

A HUGE thank you to MPP Effie Triantafilopoulos for her continued support and for acting as our Reviewing Officer last night.

Saturday morning, some of our cadets had the amazing opportunity to participate in a flight around the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area in a World War Two C-47 Dakota!

The aircraft that these cadets flown in served with 437 Squadron during WWII and 424 Squadron for Search & Rescue at CFB Trenton shortly after, until it was donated to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in 2014.

A big thank you to Lieutenant-Colonel Lawrence Hatfield, Commanding Officer of the 56th Field Regiment, for donating this flight to the cadets as he continues to show support to the Cadet Program!
