Canadian Air Cadet Gliding Program Cancelled
As hobby and professional pilots, cadets (including CIC staff, former and current), industry professionals, aviation enthusiasts and concerned citizens we should strive to support each other in this dark hour.
The ACGP (Air Cadet Gliding Program) has been a source of ambition and drive for many.
The program is the monumental cornerstone of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets and a large pride position and success story of Cadets Canada, the Air Cadet League and Department of National Defence.
Tens of thousands of Canadian have learned responsibility and accountability at the hands of regional gliding schools. We as those who have benefited from the Air Cadet Gliding Program are now indebted to defend it.
We who support hobby and professional flying in Canada are now charged to continue its unique legacy.
We as aviation enthusiasts are empowered to assist it.
Finally, we as informed and proud citizens are all needed to provide support and a voice to protect this important and culture defining program.
You are called upon today to help in this cause, you are called upon to bring a voice to this problem.
A petition (to protest the recent cancellation of the Air Cadet gliding program) addressed to Gordon MacKay, Minister of Defence is taking names.
