    W4295-21S002 - Cadet Flying Training Accommodations Services
    The purpose of this Statement of Requirement (SOR) is to define the infrastructure and services required for providing quarters and limited office space for administrative and support staff to the Regional Cadet Support Unit (Northwest) (RCSU (NW)) Cadet Flying Training Centre (CFTC), which will operate between June and August annually, consecutively for two (2) years, and three (3) additional option years, for a total of up to five (5) years. 
    RCSU (NW) CFTC will train approximately a minimum 30 Air Cadets, to a maximum of 50 Air Cadets (ages 16-18) during the summer training period. There is approximately 88 support and operations staff required to run the CFTC, which are comprised of senior cadets (Staff Cadets), members of the Canadian Forces and civilians. There is one (1) seven-week  course that results in approximately 138 persons (staff and cadets) on site per day during the peak training period (1st week in July to 3rd week in August) . This figure could be within plus or minus 10% of the total. 
    Flying operations infrastructure and aircraft maintenance/storage to support the CFTC training is provided for under separate contract.
    Prior to the arrival of cadets at RCSU (NW) CFTC in early July, staff are trained for approximately two (2) weeks in flying operations specific to the airport.
    The programs provided to the cadets during the summer period are conducted to enhance the training they have previously received during the academic year at their home Units.  During the summer training period, cadets will receive instruction in the Glider Pilot Training Course (GPTC).  Approximately seven (7) weeks in length, this course trains cadets in gliding theory and practical application to a level where they receive their Transport Canada Gliding licence.
    While the courses run at RCSU (NW) CFTC may change from year to year, the number of cadets and facility requirements are likely to remain the same.
