Regular / Local Training
Weekly training commences on Wednesdays from September to June each year. These programs are delivered by the local squadron staff and the senior cadets.
The local squadron staff are part time DND employees and volunteers tasked to deliver the Locally Directed Program (LDA). Our staff comes from all walks of life including teachers, aviation specialists, instructors, office workers, customer service representatives, university students...etc.
