CAE/Jazz Simulator Training

On April 13, 2019 our very own WO1 Lu, Allen was able to visit the CAE/Jazz Pilot Training Facility and got to experience their flight simulator, the CJR900. He was a great help with other cadets who attended and the staff commented that his passion for aviation was a “breath of fresh air”. WO1 Lu remarked that the opportunity to attend was “a fantastic experience.”
