May 7 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm PDT
This event is tentative based on the ongoing PSAC strike and weather. We will be told by Wednesday if this goes ahead, but we need to get cadets signed up, so we have cadets selected in case this goes ahead.
This is weather dependant. If you do not receive a call or if there is no notice on Facebook, then this event is still a go and all cadets that signed up are expected to meet in Abbotsford. (i.e. if it is raining when you get up and there is no notice to cancel, you still have to come.) This is an all day event. Cadets are expected to arrive no later than 0830 hrs at Abbotsford Airport at the Abbotsford Airshow compound, which is marked with Cadet Gliding site signage. Directions below. Cadets must arrange their own travel to and from their airport. Lt Park is the OPI. Cadets are expected to wear appropriate civilian clothing, and to dress for the weather as this is an outdoors event. Cadets should wear good shoes that are waterproof/resistant, as they will be launching and recovering Gliders. Cadets should be comfortably able to walk back to the launch point from the furthest reaches of the airport!
Directions: Coming from Highway 1, it is south on Mt. Lehman Road, left on Simpson Road, right on Queen Street, then left after passing through the airport gates, per the map below.
