Questions to your chain of command
Cadets are going to have the opportunity to go up in the glider and learn about the regional gliding school. Becoming a glider pilot is the first milestones for the cadets wishing to get their power pilot license. Having exposure to the gliders prior to attending the scholarship camp is always a great opportunity to ensure success on getting their glider pilot license.
Cadets are to meet at the 525 LHQ at 0730 and will be transported to the gliding site. They will then return to the 525 LHQ at 1245. Cadets should bring their own food/snacks and arrive at the squadron on time. Dress is weather-appropriate civilian wear (e.g running shoes, and rain gear if req'd)
