    Well, you were supposed to have been issued all of those, when you get your uniform. If you a corporal, and don't have them; you need to ask about being issued what you don't have.

    On another note, your a corporal, you should be starting to take on responsibilities, and taking initiative. New cadets are going to be looking up to you, and they don't know what to where, and when. By wearing something like a beret, or your wedge on an FTX, will show the new cadets what the accepted dress is. You also need to make sure you know what they need to know, so you can at least tell them.

    No problem, if you look on the cadets.ca website you will see the CATO's available online if you want to read the full passage regarding combats.

    Thanks for the input everyone!
    On all our Battalion Parades this year at Blackdown, all Air Cadets wore their wedges with combats. It surprisingly didn't look too bad

Really in our squadron you only can't wear the actual CADPAT but since it's illegal to own real CADPAT you can basically wear anything. Going back to the fact that the ACU is still a actual uniform the american army, I see it as being safer than many other types of clothing. I own a set of ACU combats and they're fireproof, water proof, windproof, and extremely warm which is great for any FTX so I would actually recommend them if one was looking for a good set of combats
    pankoski, i thought cadets were only allowed to wear either civilian clothing or OGs and no mimic combats or any non-Canadian combats

    Negative

    ^ Negative.

    Cadets may wear anything they wish, provided that it keeps them warm and dry for the weekend ( and ofcourse as long as it's appropriate)


    OG-107 though, is the only allowed Field Training Uniform allowed for wear by air cadets WITH insignia and rank.

    Wrong.

    55-04 (e). cadet field training uniform. Cadets
    are authorized to wear the cadet field
    training uniform (colour, olive green)
    during sqn survival exercises when
    authorized by the sqn CO. Headdress
    (the wedge or blue beret with the Air
    cadet hat insignia, wide-brimmed tan
    summer hat or toque) and cadet rank
    slip-ons shall be worn with the cadet
    field training uniform. Cadet field
    training uniforms obtained by cadets
    for sqn training shall not be taken to
    CSTCs. The CADPAT is the current
    CF field combat clothing uniform.
    The wear of CADPAT by cadets is
    not permitted in any circumstances

    But remember that it's your commanding officer who get the last word...

    and for the berets, in my squadron, only the senior staff can wear the berets and only the staff can wear the combats, the only combat authorized is the OC-107. The rules depending of your commanding officer, ask to him(or her) his standards about combats.

    P.S. sorry for mistake, I'm francophone I do my best but...

    Why would seniors be allowed to wear the most suitable clothes, which is combats, while juniors are left to their own means to have proper gear?

    Huh. That is a bit strange, but as always, it is up to the CO's discretion. Although I will agree that it's a bit unnecessary for first/second year cadets to buy combats, as many quit anyway. But if they have them, I don't see why they can't wear them.

    Air Air Cadet Combats

    I was wondering where can i get combats and what do they look like?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can get combats at most army surplus stores. What you should be buying are olive drab combats. Example here. A quick Google search could give you some stores you could call.

    I haven't purchased myself any combats in a few years so I'm not really sure what they run for nowadays.

    NOTE: DO NOT buy Cadpat. That is a big no-no.

    That sweater is not and has never been issue. The old wooly pully was dress green and was a dress uniform item, not permitted with combats.

    It should probably be mentioned that the Air Cadet dress instructions (CATO 55-04) state that cadets shall not wear "any form of CF uniform or cadet uniform, past or present, not described in this CATO" (essentially only the air cadet uniform, blue flightsuit, OG-107 combats and a few other items mentioned in paragraphs 16 and 28 are allowed). Civilian clothes are, of course, always allowed on an FTX.

    Hi everyone,

    I am planning on getting some combats soon for the upcoming May FTX but I have some questions:

    I have not yet been issued any dark blue cotton t-shirts yet. Will I need to purchase some dark blue or green t-shirts or will the light blue t-shirt be permissible under the tunic?

    I don't think I will be able to get a nametape so soon, so will the CF blue laminated plastic name tag be permissible?

    Thanks
    So, Andrew
