We are working to get you uniforms as quickly as possible and info will be posted as soon as your uniforms are in.
If you do not have a uniform you are still able to participate to all activities - please dress appropriately for weather and it is suggested that you wear black dress pants and a white collared shirt.
CADETS who have been issued a uniform are required and expected to wear the uniform. They are also expected to wear it in accordance with regulations (CATO 55-04).
Cadets that are frequently out of dress may face corrective actions in accordance with CATO 15-22, which may include a written warning; suspension of privileges; removal of position; suspension of pending promotion; reduction in rank; suspension; and ultimately the termination of CCO membership.
Note that we have a number of cadets on standby for this Saturday's TAG Day. If you are no longer able to attend, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can add standby cadets. Report your absence here > form.

Quota Summer Courses (General Training, Basic Level and Instructor Level)
Quota summer course application should be out this week or next, note that we receive approximately 30% of our squadron's effective strength in summer course positions. Unfortunately, this means that not all cadets who have applied on summer training will receive a position.
We will work to ensure that the Squadron receives as many positions for summer training as possible.
We will only make one offer for summer training, if declined we will not make another offer.
Attending a summer training course is a privilege and not a right, offers are made in priority on the basis of merit and overall allocation of positions by the Regional Cadet Support Unit.
It is possible that we will be offered additional positions right up to the start day of the camp, but there is no guarantee.

Squadron Sponsoring Committee
Ever wonder what it takes to run a squadron and to offer an exceptional program to your youths?
The 75 Squadron Sponsoring Committee is the local representative of the Air Cadet League of Canada. It is composed of between 5 and 11 interested parents (of current and former cadets) and other community members. Membership is decided on a yearly basis through an election held in May or June for the following training year.
The Sponsoring Committee is responsible for:
providing suitable accommodation for cadet training and activities;
promoting the Cadet Program to the community;
fundraising and managing the squadron's funds and bank account (including maintaining charitable organization status); and
ensuring that cadets are evaluated and treated fairly.
Are you interested in assisting with any of the background planning, canteen, and fundraising efforts to ensure that the squadron can succeed? No experience necessary (18+), just a desire to support and assist with certain activities.
Join us May 16, 2019 at 7pm to find out more and to elect the next 75 Barrhaven Squadron Sponsoring Committee!
