Our Staff

Our Squadron Staff including Officers, Civilian Instructors (CI) and Civilian Volunteers (CV) offer their expertise to the cadet program. Our Staff come from all walks of life and bring a wealth of knowledge and personal experience to the Squadron. Their goal is to make each cadet’s time with 205 Collishaw Squadron a rewarding and memorable experience. Without our staff we would not have a Squadron, they work hard all year to ensure the cadets have a great year.
