IMPORTANT, Action Required: Field Training Uniforms:
Exciting News! All Air Cadets are going to be issued FTU/Combats for this upcoming training year. As a result, we require everyone to submit their sizes so that we can get these ordered.
The supply team will be available during our Zoom meeting on July 27th to explain the sizing process and answer any questions that you might have. Parents are encouraged to drop into the Level 1 and 2 Zoom meetings at 1900 and the Level 3 and 4 Zoom meetings at 1930.
We are including the instructions (Click Here!) for taking measurements for you to look over ahead of time.
There will be a Google Form posted after our Virtual Meeting on Monday (July 27) for you to enter your correct size. It is MANDATORY for all Cadets to fill out this form as this will be a required part of your uniform. This Google Form will be available under the current activities tab…or click here! (The form will not be accessible until Monday, July 27th)

We will give you until the 31st to complete this challenge.
Email pictures of your participation (preferably the more funny ones) to email@example.com and we will post a picture collage right after the challenge.
Your safety is of the utmost importance. Any participation is to be done in a safe way, at your own speed that works for you. If you do this in your backyard, remember to wear a hat and sunscreen. And, as always, hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
