Invitation from 135 Bell-Irving Squadron to join advanced ground school online
We have decided to put an advanced spring ground school program on this year to offer interested students a more in-depth look at some of the technical topics that we are unable to dedicate time to during the fall syllabus. The topics chosen are all relevant to their futures in aviation and will expand on some questions frequently asked during the regular syllabus.
Keen cadets of any age are welcome to join us. However, these topics are not beginner-level so students would benefit from having previously attended a ground school program or conducted a self-study program to the same degree. There will be no tests, but engaging with the instructors and program material is encouraged.
All sessions will be delivered via the MS Teams account hosted by 111 Sqn.
