Local air cadets got a unique opportunity this past week.

The visiting Snowbirds team attended a cadet meeting to inspect the squadron and answer questions.

Snowbird Team Lead Major Yanick Gregoire says the air cadets program had a big impact on many of the snowbird team members.

Cadet Warrent Officer Second Class Jordan Gardner says it’s a great opportunity to ask questions, especially for the younger cadets.

The snowbirds are in the Comox Valley for their annual training trip, prior to the start of the air show season.
