Ground School

The 330 ground school program is open to all cadets interested in becoming a glider and/or power pilots. This comprehensive course is designed to help our cadets succeed on the Glider and Power Pilot Scholarship courses held in the summer at various training centres across Canada. Instructors carry out weekly classes that cover material on Theory of Flight, Meteorology, Radio and Air Law, Navigation and much more. To be selected for one of these scholarships, a cadet must pass a qualifying examination, write a 500 word narrative and go though an interview that is held annually by the Ontario Provincial Committee. More information is outlined in the latest orientation document.
