Ground School


As of this year a new National On-Line Ground school for the Glider Pilot Training Course and the Power Pilot Training Course is being run. 

Cadets must be eligible (see Annex A to CJCR Group Order 8060-7 – Air Cadets National Summer Training Course Selection Process). Any Cadet who intends to apply for Glider Pilot Training Course (GPTC) or the Power Pilot Training Course (PPTC) must complete the entire 45 hours of online ground school and the selection exam by 15 January 2022. Squadrons may continue to offer their own ground school, but cadets may only challenge the examination upon completion of the national online ground school course. The eligibility requirements for the online training are the same as those for the GPTC and PPTC and the course can accommodate up to 4000 trainees at a time, in English or French, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Training will start 1 October 2022. Once cadets are registered they will receive instructions to the C365 email address.
