- To provide an opportunity for Air Cadets to increase their self confidence; and increase their
ability to reason, organize and express ideas;
- To promote the citizenship component of local squadron training;
- To provide a focus at the Local, Regional/Wing, Provincial/Territorial, and National levels, to
promote and encourage Air Cadets to participate in an optional activity that will provide them with
an opportunity to acquire effective speaking skills through instruction and practice in a structured
and competitive environment;
- To increase public awareness regarding the citizenship and leadership aspects of the Air Cadet
program at the national, provincial and local levels.
In the Air Cadet program, we use words such as leadership, teamwork, self-discipline, self-confidence,
good citizenship. Cadets who participate in the effective speaking program will learn all of these things.
The skills they learn here will help them immeasurably in other areas of their life as well, whether they are
making class presentations in secondary school, or later, interviewing for admission to professional
faculties at universities, making presentations to colleagues at work, leading volunteer organizations,
running for public office.
Aircraft Modeling For Royal Canadian Air Cadets
Over the past several years, Model Aeronautics Association of Canada (MAAC) members have been working with Air Cadet Squadrons across Canada to develop an interest in aviation through the building of model aircraft and rockets. Some Squadrons have developed their own internal programs to the extent that individual cadets have been able to achieve assistant instructor level requirements.
MAAC, in conjunction with the Aero Club of Canada (formerly the Royal Canadian Flying Clubs Association), have made funds available for any Air Cadet Squadron interested in establishing a MAAC model building program. The MAAC program consists of four steps beginning with hand launched gliders and rubber band powered models through U-control and eventually radio-controlled models. The selection of kits and materials for the model-building course reflect a thorough analysis of the need for cadets to advance from basic gliders through to advanced radio-controlled modelling. As Cadets advance and develop expertise they are expected to assist entry-level model builders in the Squadron. This ideally maintains a preferred 6:1 student/instructor ratio.
