    You will most likely go to either Petawawa or Borden, depending on who is running the course for LFCA. But before that happens you will be doing GMT with your brigade which could be at Meaford.

    It depends then on your unit and what other courses are being offered. At worst you might get a summer callout position.

    It's the truth though the paperwork and the tests, interviews, medicals. In the last two months(which is when I started applying) I have been asked the same questions by like 10 different officers. It drives me nuts like doesnt anyone in that office ever talk to each other. cause there all from the same recruiting center/testing center.

    Its about time I noticed this thread since me and some friends of mine are full of questions about the ROTP program.

    When applying for ROTP do you also send your application to the university as normal, or does it have to be customized for the CF?

    Does the CF discriminate against political views? Such as, whether you have Left or Right wing ideals? Are we allowed to join a political party while in the CF?

    Does the subsidy given vary depending on what university you are going to and how expensive its tuition is? Or is there a set subsidy size?

    Are you comissioned only after graduation or can you become an officer with the cadet movement while you are attending university?

    Do you attend any special training during your time in university or during summer breaks?

    Once a member of the CF are we allowed to run any private business on the side? I consider myself a computer geek and I wondered if I would be able to run my own web-based business for some extra pocket cash (computers are also an expensive hobby )

    Thats all for now but I'm sure I'll think of more later. Thanks in advance.

    Do you attend any special training during your time in university or during summer breaks?Summer you may pick up some courses and/or taskings

    You can moonshine but good luck with that venture as some bases/ships/etc do not all have the same access as others.

    I am very interested in a career as an Air Navigator. From what I read here, you recieve wings. However, I am unable to become a military pilot (glasses). I was wondering if as a nav, the qualification of pilot is different, meaning that I could still do it. Any other information would be appreciated.

    Second question: Would it hurt to take an extra semester of school and apply for ROTP a year later than usual?

    Thanks,
    Miranda

    The wings you would receive as an Air Navigator are different than those you would recieve as a pilot, and so to is the qualification. The other question that arises is how much the vision standard differs between different aircrew occupations.

    With regards to your second question. It shouldn't cause any difficulties, many Ontario students still take a fifth year of HS, since the elimination of the OAC year.
