Brandon Air Cadet Squadron

For other air cadet units in Manitoba visit: Manitoba Air Cadet League Information
As the Commanding Officer of the local Air Cadet Squadron here in Brandon. In my 30 years experience with the Air Cadet Program I have seen some great results for home schooled children from the view point of an extracurricular activity as well as a social activity in addition to the added academic (Aviation), Citizenship, Leadership and physical fitness training. The Air Cadet Program offers its members access to summer camps in a variety of subject areas, in 2 week, 3 week and 6 week training. We offer access to a Glider pilot training scholarship, and a Private pilot training scholarship (7 week summer camp, scholarship prep conducted at the local unit). We also offer access to optional Marksmanship and music training (drum corps) here in Brandon. To join, youth must be 12 years old, and may participate in the program until their 19th birthday.
The Cadet program, whether Air Force, Army or Navy is free to join, uniforms are provided at no cost (small cost to maintain the uniform over the years), and no fees for training exercises. The is however a need for the cadets to be involved in fundraising activities. Drums and supplies for cadets to participate in the Drum corps will be provided. All appropriate Safety and Marksmanship Training, equipment and supplies will be provided at no cost as well.
All cadet training is conducted at the Brandon Armoury, 1116 Victoria Avenue, Brandon Manitoba.
