Ground School

142 Squadron offers a pilot ground school course for cadets who wish to apply for the Glider Pilot or Power Pilot Training Course. It is geared towards the material required for the qualifying exam held in January.

This class is mandatory for all cadets applying for either training course at 142 Mimico Squadron. There are a limited number of positions available at each unit so marks in this class determine eligibility.

Topics covered:

  • Air Law
  • Theory of Flight
  • Meteorology
  • Navigation
