Simply come and see us. We meet every Tuesday Evening from 6:30 until 9:15 pm during the “Air Cadet Year” at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 197 which is located at 15 Wright Ave. Acton ON.
The “Air Cadet Year” runs from September thru until mid June. There are no Air Cadet meetings during the summer. Some cadets will still be active with Air Cadets during the summer if they are on Summer Training, but there are no formal Tuesday meetings at that time.
Around the end of August or the beginning of September we will have official “Recruiting Nights” where you may stop by and meet our officers and some of our current cadets, you can ask all the questions you wish and see a presentation on what Air Cadets is all about. These Recruiting Nights are perfect for those youth who are not yet 12 as well as those 12 and older who are interested in learning more about our cadet program / flying / aviation / aerospace and any other aspect of Air Cadets. The specific dates for our official “Recruiting Nights” will appear in the Acton Tanner and here on our site sometime in August.
There is no need to wait for an official recruiting night, cadets may join at any time during the cadet year and are encouraged to do so. The sooner you join after turning 12 the better as that means your Air Cadet career will be its longest and therefore you will have more opportunities than those that join later. You may remain in Air Cadets until the last day of your 18th year of age at which time you will “age-out” of cadets. Once you are 19+ you may if you wish join our squadron as a volunteer. The officers and staff of both the squadron and our SSC (Squadron Sponsoring Committee) are all volunteers and are parents of current and past air cadets.
Even if you are unsure about joining cadets, come out on a Tuesday evening to watch or give us a try for a few weeks and see if being an Air Cadet is something you want to be. There’s no pressure… we are not trying to sell you anything… well other than one of the best programs the youth of Canada can be in. Come take a look at Cadets… 50,000+ Canadian youth who are currently members can’t all be wrong.
