Welcome Back – A message from the CO

2019/2020 Cadet Year

Good Day to the extended 62 Sqn Family,

I sincerely hope that each and every one of you had a safe and enjoyable summer break.

In the coming weeks, there will be a lot of information to get out to the cadets and their families. We the staff apologize in advance for the length of this WRO 01-20 when it is published by early next week. It is truly unavoidable with the amount of things going on in the first 3 weeks.

For those who are no longer with the squadron, we would like to wish you the best in the future as you embark on your new paths in life with hopefully much success. Graduating Cadets, you will always be part of the 62 Sqn Family and are welcome to visit at any time. If you have not returned your uniform, please make an effort to do so ASAP with either myself or Ocdt Hannus (instructions on when and where are published in this Warning WRO below).

Over the next month we will be validating returning cadets and updating the squadron email system. Those who are no longer part of the program will have their emails removed by the end of September. Thank you for your patience while we go through the registration process.

There will be a bunch of changes this coming year, with the biggest change being the transfer of command to Capt Richard Robinson as the Squadron Commanding Officer on Friday 13 Sept 2019.
With all the changes coming down; we hope they will make the squadron operate more efficiently and make the experience more enjoyable for your son or daughter.

There are several activities that we must plan for over the coming weeks which require cadets to sign up electronically via email if they wish to participate. They are listed below with more detail.

Just like any other year, we will have a pre-registration night for all returning cadets on Thursday 05 Sept if families wish. More on that next week in WRO #01-20.

The Start of the cadet training year will commence with Registration and the Welcome Back BBQ on Friday 06 Sept starting at 1800hrs for Registration and 1900hrs for the BBQ service.

We, the Squadron Support Committee, Squadron Staff and Senior Cadets all hope that all of you are looking forward to a new year as we embark on a new path together.

Welcome Back!
Major D.T. Leonard, CD
Commanding Officer
