Those cadets who are flying this weekend will need to be at Birchall at 0900 Saturday morning. We will be leaving at 0930. We will be returning around 1930 that evening. Cadets should bring snacks and a lunch as we will be on the airfield and there will be nowhere to get food. Cadets should also bring activities to occupy themselves with both on the bus and while waiting for their flight. We discourage bringing electronics in case they get lost or broken.

If there are any questions please let us know.
