    • Old clothes are better, they will get muddy

Please do not drop your cadet at the armoury prior to 0715 hours. Departure from the Guelph Armoury will be for 0730hours, arriving at Wingham William Le Van airport at approximately 0900hrs.

Cadets are required to have their health card in order to board the bus, and must keep it with them at all times.

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.

OPC Lottery Survey

The Ontario Provincial Committee (OPC) of the Air Cadet League of Canada is conducting a survey and your input would be appreciated. Click the link or button below to start the survey. Thank you for your participation!

At the meeting between the OPC Board of Governors, Directors, Squadron Sponsoring Committee (SSC) and associated Department of National Defence (DND) personnel in August of 2016 at the Canadian Forces College in Toronto, a significant number of those in attendance indicated that they favoured investigating replacing the lottery as a means of raising funds for both OPC and the SSC. This survey is designed to gauge your support for keeping, or eliminating, the OPC lottery. The earliest that any change can be implemented would be the 2018 – 2019 cadet training year.

Parents & Volunteers, *Urgently Needed*

On September 22, 23, and 24, 121 Red Arrows Air Cadet Squadron will be organizing our first major fundraising event of the training year.  Known as Tag Days, during these few days, every cadet will be signing up for mandatory shifts (minimum of 3) to help the squadron raise funds to put towards extracurricular activities like familiarization flying, squadron competition teams, survival exercises, field trips, sports activities, and other exciting events.  Cadets will be standing in front of assigned public locations in pairs to solicit donations.  Please encourage your cadet to discuss this activity with their respective Flight Commanders.

As a representative of the Squadron Sponsoring Committee, we would like to invite all parents to help out in this exciting event. We need parents to help us drive and supervise cadets to/at different locations, serve snacks, as well as count money.

All Squadron parents can be a Parents Driver.  In order to do so please note:

  • You need to bring your Drivers Licence and Car Insurance papers with you.
  • Let us know how many cadets you can take in your car.
  • Make sure the cadets have checked in with their location and are not blocking the entrance before leaving.
  • Check on the cadets occasionally during their shift.
  • Complete the driver form available from SSC each morning. Drivers_log

The Sponsoring Committee needs as many volunteers as possible to help our cadets to make Tag Days run as smoothly as possible.  Use the Contact Us form https://121redarrows.ca/contact-us/ to let us know how you can volunteer
