My early start in aviation is largely due to my involvement in the Royal Canadian Air Cadets. I was selected for both the Glider and Power pilot scholarships, giving me the pushstart to a career in aviation. I continually give back to the cadet program by attending weekend gliding sessions and intend to provide young cadets familirization flights to introuduce them to flying.dit.
