In His Own Words…

2Lt (26031) George Sun, 6 Squadron, Class of 2015

I spent my summer in Cold Lake for my AERE Preparatory Phase, working with 410TF(OT)S. I am currently undergoing the AOBC in Borden.

RMC is an experience that I’ll always cherish. Despite it not seeming so at the time, RMC will develop crucial skills that you will rely on multiple times in your career, such as time management and problem solving skills. Enjoy every moment you can, because you’ll graduate before you know it.

The amount of people you meet in the CF that have graduated from RMC is incredible. Keep in touch with all your friends and classmates. You never know where you might meet them down the road, and what you guys can do for each other.
