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.

Activity

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.
