For the 2022-23 training year there will be two concurrent optional ground schools running. Both will occur Thursdays from 1900-2100hrs at the D-Coy Armouries. Sessions will run from 13 Oct through mid Jan. Uniforms are not required.
Those who are or will be registered in Fortress for GPTC/PPTC (summer of 2023) will have a classroom to work on the Online Ground School (OGS) and access to volunteer pilots to answer questions or explain concepts. Note the deadline this year for Fortress registration is 15 Oct. To allow Sqn staff time to register a cadet in Fortress, the cadet must complete the Ground School Interest/Signup well before 15 Oct. Without a Fortress registration there is no option to apply for GPTC/PPTC occurring in 2023.
Those not old enough to apply for summer 2023 will be in a separate classroom learning flying topics in an instructor led class with a volunteer pilot. This class in open to Level 3 and above, or 14 years of age and older.
