Cadet Orientation Rides – 21 – 22 October

We are planning on conducting COF this coming weekend, provided the weather cooperates. We scheduled three separate events for last weekend and unfortunately we had to cancel two due to low ceilings in the area.
So far, we have one on the calendar for Saturday from 0900 to 1300. There is room for three cadets, so if interested, go to the calendar in this page and register.
There will be more scheduled as the crews become available so please check the calendar routinely and register for any events that are in the calendar.
