Earlier this training year, cadets at 111 Squadron got to participate in a unique activity. A select few cadets went on a winter FTX (Field Training Exercise) in Manning Park for a total of two nights, a joint activity with 135 Bell-Irving Squadron. While on the trip, cadets learned to put up and take down arctic survival tents, build snow caves, and also went on a snowshoe hike across a frozen lake. Field training exercises are not only an exciting opportunity for all involved, but they also provide valuable knowledge.
