Corner Brook Air Cadet Has Awesome Summer Flying

An Air Cadet from the 511 Humber Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron in Corner Brook had quite an amazing summer learning how to fly!

Warrant Officer Second Class (WO2) Abby Caines spent the summer in Gander learning how to fly a power plane trough the Power Pilot Scholarship, offered through the Air Cadet Program.

Caines said that she, "learned to fly a single-engine aircraft. In my case, it was a Cessna-152. My training aircraft was C-GZKI and although she was rough around the edges, she got me my wings."

All sixteen people who attended the course passed both the Transport Canada exam and flight test.

Caines added, "I never knew how much I adored flying until I did it myself and I am forever changed because of it."

The Royal Canadian Air Cadets is a Canadian national youth program for young individuals aged 12 to 19. Under the authority of the National Defence Act, the program is administered by the Canadian Forces and funded through the Department of National Defence.
