When cadets grow wings

Pilot's licenses earned by Surrey teens.

Anderson Kwan and Andrea Ho

Cadets F/Sgt. Andrea Ho and F/Sgt. Anderson Kwan of Surrey’s 767 Dearman Air Cadet Squadron have received their pilot’s licenses at the Air Cadet Private Pilot Scholarship Course in Comox.

They were trained on a Cessna 172 over several weeks during the summer at the Air Cadet Regional Gliding School.

“To me success is defined by how hard one tries and how much effort one is willing to put into something,” said Ho. “This year, I can honestly say I have put in my all to earn on a spot in the Power Pilot Course.

“These young men and women have worked very hard to get here on scholarship, and will continue to work even harder throughout the course,” said Lt.-Col Tony Appels, Commanding Officer of Regional Gliding School (Pacific).

Thirty-four other air cadets also received their pilot’s licenses.
