Vintage Wings’ aircraft in County sky

TigerMoth4Vintage Wings of Canada’s heritage aircraft will be seen flying around CFB Trenton and Mountain View from July 10 to 22 as part of a familiarization program for the Royal Canadian Air Cadets at the Trenton Air Cadet Summer Training Centre (TACSTC).

Residents of Quinte West, Prince Edward County and surrounding communities may see a Harvard, a Tiger Moth, a Fleet Finch, or a Chipmunk flying around the area during this period. The educational outreach program, Yellow Wings, has been developed by Vintage Wings of Canada to address the challenge of turning young people onto science, technology, engineering and math, and motivating them to pursue their dreams through hard-work and discipline. This program will take place over 50 days during the summer at nine cadet training centres across Canada.

As the TACSTC is one of Canada’s largest Air Cadet training centres with approximately 1,600 cadets participating in various summer training courses, it represents an ideal audience for the educational outreach.
Trenton and Prince Edward County are especially relevant venues for this training initiative given the historic significance the Royal Canadian Air Force and the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan.
