    FYI you can't bring your own pair of combats to a CSTC as it will be confiscated.

    He can wear the flight suit if his CO allows him to. He just can't wear ANY cadet insignia on it.

    We allow our cadets to wear just about anything, but they don't wear any headdress or slip ons.
    Only if they're wearing OG107.

    I found a website where you can get a name tape for your FTU. Is this allowed?

    Any suggestions for any other items for my kit?
    What is the link to the website, where you got this picture?

    Can anybody here recommend a good website in which to order this kind of stuff? I'm only asking because my city doesn't have a military surplus store. :

    Are you sure? The only mention of the flight suit in air cadet dress regs says:

    d. blue flying suit. Cadets who are
    authorized to wear pilot wings IAW
    CATO 52-04 and who are
    participating in flying activities as
    pilots at the different Gliding Sites
    are also authorized to wear the blue
    flying suit. The wedge will be worn
    with the flying suit except when
    another headdress is authorized by
    the RCA Ops O. Rank slip-ons,
    sewn-on pilot wings, sewn-on
    nametags and regional badge/crest
    approved by the RGS may be worn
    on the flying suit;
    So wearing one for LHQ activities would appear to be not authorized.

    Combats

    Recently, my squadron has been having a bit of debate over what clothing is appropriate for field training exercises. On our most recent FTX, a couple of cadets wore some sort of American combat uniform. A few of the other seniors insisted this was inappropriate.

    Out of curiosity, I read the CATO on uniforms (55-04). It says that cadets may wear "civilian field combat pattern clothing" without any cadet insignia.

    I know you can only wear cadet berets, ranks, etc... with ODs, and that we cannot wear CF uniforms (CADPAT), but what about this? Are American or old Canadian uniforms considered civilian field combat pattern clothes?

    The rule of thumb is that, CF issued CADPAT excepted, Anything that is not OG107 (including the incoming olive green "Field Training Uniform") is usually considered "civilian pattern" for air cadets.

    What do you mean by "old Canadian uniforms" though?

    Was this American combat uniform a "BDU" (Battle Dress Uniform)? If so, I have mixed feelings about the situation. In the US, the BDU has been phased out of the Air Force and most of the military. Technically it's still a uniform, but it's not being used by the US Armed Forces. But I guess since it's phased out, it could be worn by Canadian cadets.

    Retreat? Hell, we just got here!

    Nothing based on fact, I just assumed that canada must of had field uniforms before CADPAT.

    Thank you for the clarification.

    Sorry, I don't really know. But, judging from pictures, it looks different.

    The OG-107 was the field uniform before CADPAT.

    In our squadron, anything goes basically. We have cadets in woodland, ACU, civvie Cadpat, British camo, almost everything. As long as we don't wear insignia then it's fair game.

    Any U.S. uniform/camouflage could be used by Canadian cadets as civilian attire, whether it is obsolete or not.
