On arrival at Wingham, cadets will be weighed in order to establish the accurate weight/balance with the aircraft, passenger and pilot aboard.

Dress appropriately for the weather – this is a civilian dress event. Airports are normally located in windy areas, and even in summer weather there will be a wind chill on the airfield.

Lunch will be provided (Pizza is the only real choice in Wingham, we can do vegetarian pizza, and gluten free) – if you have other dietary restrictions, consider bringing lunch you can eat.

Parents, please ensure you have a cell phone or means of contact with you, given the weather forecast, if we are able to start flying operations, we may end early if conditions change. Safety is the primary obligation.

Cadets will be required to act as ground crew under the direction of staff cadets at the airfield – they will learn and practice ground handling of glider aircraft. Wear comfortable footwear, you will be on your feet while at the airfield.

Please watch the Facebook page and the website for potential weather cancellation. The Weathernetwork.ca has a 60% probability of rain at this point for Sunday the 30th.
