Ground School

In order to assist our cadets to perform well on the Qualifying Exam, 872 Squadron runs a “Ground School” for those cadets that are interested in applying for a scholarship. Ground school classes provide cadets with more detailed information about aviation and aeronautics than is taught in the core program.

Ground School instruction for seniors takes place Monday evenings at the Squadron beginning in early October through January in order to prepare for the national examinations in February. Junior ground school starts later in the training year.


Senior Ground School (16 years of age by Sep 1 of the next Training Year and over)

Junior Ground School (12-15 years of age)

Classes will be held from 19:00hrs to 21:30hrs.

Dress is civilian casual. Please bring a pen and notebook. Arrangements will be made to obtain the “From the Ground Up” text book which will be available for purchase by the cadets.
