    Canada to Spend $5.0Bil on AEW Aircraft

    Exactly! We teach one of the NATO Arctic survival. It’s a good and challenging course that taught me to know what gear work and what doesn’t. There’s a serious lack of understanding when it comes to Arctic environment. Yes it’s warming, but the winterstorms are also more frequent and unexpected too.

    Canada to Spend $5.0Bil on AEW Aircraft

    Not sure tbh, I’ve never been. Someone had mentioned Yellowknife because of its infrastructure, including JTFN. Rotate in and out when needed. I hope the RCAF will take Arctic training seriously and the crews will be properly equipped and trained for it.

    Canada to Spend $5.0Bil on AEW Aircraft

    Alert desperately needs significant updates and repair due to its age and harsh environment. It wouldn’t help retention. We’d be better to use Yellowknife and have access to amenities.

    Former CO, RSM of Alert charged

    There’s no fences on site, just a lot of junk & SIGINT stuff. I’ve been through 3 investigations in 3 years, and I have been cleared on everything. Although I’m happy to turn the page, it changed me, and has damaged my MH significantly. Now, my goal is to heal before I medically release from the...

    Medical release vs retention?

    Good advice, I’m walking down that process and for once, it’s a welcome change of pace to slow down.

    Mystery objects/ Balloons over north America

    As per the DM press conference, the RCMP is involved and a CP140 is searching for the impact area. It’ll be like finding needles in haystack.

    I remember when I did my ALP a few years ago was to introduce students to research and analyze a problem and present solutions via an essay. I personally didn't find it helped me at all for my job as a SWO, where the majority of my job needed "people skills." Professionalizing the CWO Corp is...

    Military concerned by Canada's absence from American-British-Australian security pact

    I’m noticing a trend from CAF leadership raising concerns on the media, or is it just me?

    New (2022) CAF recruiting ad

    Soldier Operational Clothing and Equipment Modernization

    Tbh, I found the course quite an eye opener and I learned a lot on it. For one, I really got to experience what works and what doesn’t in terms of our ALSE. We also had a guest instructor and students, all SERE instructors in their respective NATO countries. We shared experience and learned from...

    My understanding was the US provided FP to safeguard the weapons. Canada was and still is part of the Treaty on the Non-Profilerstion of Nuclear Weapons.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Snowbirds being cut out of this. Also reading the CDS directive, it mentioned about aligning CDA and other stake holders to facilitate accreditation of PLQ. Having been through this process myself for someone, it was the most pain taking admin process ever...

    Defending Canadian Arctic Sovereignty

    Resolute has an ATC Arctic Training Centre. However often we see footprint being limited due to land agreement between the federal government and Nunavut.

    FWSAR (CC130H, Buffalo, C27J, V22): Status & Possibilities

    Yes housing is a big issue here. All the barracks and single quarters are full. Weeks ago the WComd mentioned they’re looking at renting hotels to house our members. I don’t know if it materialized.

    New Dress Regs 🤣

    Well from the sound of it the Air Force is about to implement ball caps (it's about time imo). Also here in Comox the Wing de-linked the tuque/gloves thing so it's a non issue here.

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Getting new recruits without the means of equipping them is useless. It's a bigger problem than simply getting more recruits through the door, and don't even get me started on the lack of housing and accommodations on many bases.
