Pilot Panel - Pilots, talking about flying....Even more!!
For those cadets who are interested in becoming pilots in the future, or who want to learn more about the flying options in Air Cadets, here is a fun live event for you!
Hosted and planned by cadets, for cadets, Pilot Panel will share with you the details about how to enjoy aviation, and maybe get your wings, as an air cadet!
Our first two Pilot Panels last month were a success - lots of great feedback, and up to 97 participants at a time throughout the evening! The cadet pilots who planned and executed the first two events have decided that there is enough demand to hold another Pilot Panel, so they can reach more cadets, answer more questions, and talk more about the subject they love.
I know, just what we all need, more pilots talking about themselves!
This time they want to focus on gliding and glider pilots, and there will be a fourth one later focusing on powered flight and the Power Pilot Course.
Next Wednesday, June 3, at 1800 EST they pla to interview each other, panel-style, about their experiences on the Glider Pilot course.
Many air cadets don't have a clear idea of what is involved with becoming a glider pilot, how to apply for the course, and what the benefits are. This panel will help to answer those questions, and hopefully encourage cadets to consider applying in future years. The event is open to all cadets (and adults!) who are interested. There will also be time planned to take questions from the "audience".
Please join the pilots next Wednesday!

Frequently asked questions
Can I apply for a Regional Summer Training Camp if I have already applied for an Advanced Course or a National Course?
YES! You can apply to as many camps as you like. If you are selected for a higher-level course, your application for a lower-level course will be automatically withdrawn.
What if I am selected for a camp, but I am no longer able to attend?
Simply advise us at firstname.lastname@example.org and your name will be withdrawn so the next cadet can have the opportunity to go.
When will I know if I have been selected for a summer camp?
Glider, power and IACE will be early March. Advanced courses should also be in the March to April range. We anticipate all other camps will be announced by the end of March.
