Model Plane Build Instruction Guidelines for Level 1 and 2

Model Plane Build Instructions

  822 Tutor Air Cadets

Reason for Direction

It is important that all Level 1 and 2 – 822 Air Cadets read and follow the instructions with assistance from their parents.

Due to the inability to train in person at this time at the squadron due to Covid-19, the staff want to create an environment of engagement and educational opportunities. Segments of the training program concentrate on Aviation Studies and Aircraft familiarization. Those learners that learn better by Tactile/Kinaesthetic can some times find virtual learning to be challenging. To assist in helping level 1 and 2 – 822 Air Cadets understand the elements of aviation studies, they will participate in a virtual model airplane build session. The lesson for the model plane build is part of the Air Cadet training program, E.O M130.03 Construct a Model Plane. After completing the plane build the Level 1 and 2 – 822 Air Cadets will have a teaching/Learning Aid for their Aviation Studies classes. The completed Aid will be needed for both virtual sessions and when we return back to unit for in person training.


E.O. M130.03 Construct a Model Airplane.

When: Wednesday October 28, 2020 and Wednesday November 4, 2020 from 1830 to 1930. The class will be taught through the Virtual Webex platform. The link can be connected through the 822 website. The Lesson will be taught by a Subject Matter Expert under the supervision of 822 Staff.


Level 1 and 2 – 822 Air Cadets will be supplied at NO COST to them 1 model aircraft (1:72 Scale) and 1 tube of model glue. Cadets are to be escorted by their parent/guardian to Forbes Hobbies located at Unit 6C- 1600 Industrial Road Cambridge, Ontario. Hours of operation are: Monday and Tuesday Closed, open Wednesday to Sunday from 1200 to 1800 hours. Cadets are to follow Covid-19 Public Health Guidelines when going to the retailer. Cadets under supervision of their parent/guardian are to speak directly to the Owner Jeremy Cada, who will give the cadet 1 kit and 1 tube of model glue at NO COST. Note: The choice of plane is on a first come, first serve basis. While at Forbes Hobbies, if the cadet or parent/guardian wish to purchase paints or other modeling supplies THOSE COST ARE NOT covered by the squadron. The costs of additional supplies will be directly covered by cadet and or parent/guardian.

Staff WILL NOT BE dropping of kits to cadets. Any enquires are to be directed to Lt Gibbons.

Flying Scholarship Exams

Writing Exam

Here is some additional information for cadets that will be writing their flying scholarship exams this coming Saturday. Note that the attached memo sent out in November indicates the testing locations for the London, Windsor, Hamilton and Kitchener Waterloo areas.

You will find attached the nominal role for cadets that had their documentation submitted on time. If you did not submit any cadets for the exams this year, you can disregard this email. If you did submit cadets in Fortresss, please review the list to confirm that they are noted.

Dress in the original documentation indicated C2 for cadets which should have read C3 Service Dress. This will be the dress for both the exams and the interviews.

Note that cadets are not permitted to use any electronic devices during the exam. This includes phones, smart watches, calculators and electronic flight calculators. I will suggest that your cadets bring a pencil and eraser with them but if they forget, there will be some available on site.

Note that arrival at each of the sites is for 1230h on 11 Jan 2020 with the exam conclusion NLT 1500h on 11 Jan 2020. Please ensure that your cadets are prompt.

There are two cadets from 121 RCACS and one cadet from 862 RCACS who will be competing at the area Biathlon competition and will have alternate arrangements made for their exams. Unit officers are aware of the arrangements.

Any questions to my attention.
