As we near the end of another unique taining year, the senior cadets and staff at #540GoldenHawks are always looking and planning ahead.

As part of our succession planning, and to ensure that there is enough time for our current warrants to train the next generation, the Commanding Officer promoted a bunch of deserving cadets to the rank of WO2 at April CO’s parade and two more last night at our May CO’s parade.

Please join us in congratulating our new team of Warrant Officer Second Classes! #BravoZulu all — well deserved.

Well #Oakville, after two years your air cadets are back out standing in front of storefronts, ready to greet you with a smile!

That’s right, we are back in the community for our tagging fundraiser. But this time, we accept tap too — so no more need to have spare change.

We kindly ask that you take some time to stop and chat with our cadets, as well as donate to #540GoldenHawks as 100% of the funds raised goes directly back to the cadets, allowing us to offer them many opportunities that they can’t get anywhere else.

We will be out and about all day today and tomorrow.
