G. Anderson, Former WO1


C. Peddle, Former WO2

C. Peddle is a “licensed private pilot” at age 17 after completing 45 hours of flight time under the Flying Scholarship program. “It’s like being in a dream,” said Peddle of flying. “It feels unreal. I am only 17, I can’t believe I am doing this on my own…” Earning her flying license was a life-long dream for the youngster who admits to being smitten by planes at 12 when her parents took her to see an air show.
The teenager’s climb within the Royal Canadian Air Cadets has been impressive. In six years, Peddle, a member of Brampton’s 132 Spitfire squadron, has managed to rise to the rank of warrant officer 2nd class. Someday, she hopes to become a snowbird. Part of Peddle’s six-week training involves her mastering theoretical aspects of navigation including meteorology, airmanship, aircrew survival, aerodrome structures and other heavy subjects. “Cadets taught me how to fly,” said Hadfield. “I never knew how high it would take me.”
