Power FAMIL Pilot Upgrade Scholarships

The Air Cadet League of Canada (ACL) is intending to change the present Pilot Training Awards Program. Funds would be consolidated to provide a smaller number of higher-value awards.



The ACL will replace the present program of CFAs and PTAAs, by re-allocating awards to help fund Power FAMIL Pilot Upgrade Scholarships (PFPUS). The ACL believes this will help solve the lack of squadron-based pilots able to do familiarization flights with the younger cadets. In this way they believe the model will be a better and more efficacious way of providing direct support to cadets and the flying programme. Committed cadets would return to their squadrons to conduct FAMIL Flights, and upon aging out, when many do return to the squadron as a CI or enroll in the CIC, they would be able to continue to perform this essential task. These scholarships would be paid to the cadet's local flying school. The major contributors to the present "continuation flying awards/bursaries" (CAE, ALPA, CBAA, AFAC, ACPA, Commissionaire Frank Kobe) have all agreed to the changes, the aim of which would be to consolidate about $60,000 and present approx. 24 awards.
