Local Air Cadets learn outdoor skills

Cadets wind down year with several activities during the next several weekends.

THE ROYAL Canadian Air Cadet Squadron 747 air cadets participated in a Field Training Exercise during the May 5 weekend. Here Flight Corporal Sam Christiansen works towards achieving his Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award by cooking his dinner over a small fire.

LOCAL AIR Cadets learned skills at a weekend field training exercise earlier this month.

Eighteen cadets learned how to use a map and compass, how to search for somebody using a grid and other outdoor survival skills.

The squadron helped set up booths, light candles and take down booths for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life May 12.

May Sports Weekend takes place this weekend.

Cadets from Dawson Creek, Chetwynd, McKenzie, Prince George, Quesnel, and Vanderhoof will be coming to Terrace to join us in a fun weekend of competition.

To finish the month, air cadets will hold a marksmanship weekend with Smithers Sea Cadets May 26, 27

Then they start June with a gliding camp in Smithers June 2,3.

Before heading out to summer camps, Air Cadets will celebrate their accomplishments at their Ceremonial Review at the cadet hall at the airport June 10. Parents are asked to be at the hall by 12:30 p.m. and the review begins shortly before 1 p.m.
