Day – 4

Today the cadets reached a milestone in their training. They were informed early on in the day that it was”Hump Day.” They had no idea what this meant, and still have yet to learn it, but hump day is day 3 or day 4 of an encampment when the flights begin working together as a team, and really bonding together, getting over the metaphorical hump in their training. The day started off with their daily PT where the cadets did exceptionally well and were great at encouraging one another during the run, which was a good indication to the staff that Hump Day was in full swing. After breakfast and drill the encampment had a large-scale inspection where all the cadets and their barracks received careful inspection from the staff. The cadets then had a team building activity testing their communication skills and enjoyed their lunch before classes began. The classes covered a multitude of subjects including a radio call activity, put on by the 3 staff members who attended National Flight Academy this year. After dinner the cadets all had fun playing Volleyball and Ultimate Frisbee to end the day. Overall it was a very productive day for the cadets (and a tiring one for staff) where overall everyone had a good time.

Today the cadets were involved in a rare team building exercise called refined tanks.  Some more cadets also went on O flights. Here are some pictures of tanks.  Pictures for o-flights will also follow.

Today the Commander, Maine Wing, Colonel Marc Brunelle made a visit  to encampment during  closing formation.  One of the highlights of the day was PT, we had a long run, about one mile (5280 feet), all cadet successfully completed the run.  Also some cadets had orientation flights  (this is a free flight that is both  fun and instructional activity conducted at about 3000 feet above sea level) (regrettably there are no pictures of these flight activities) here are some pictures of the other activities of the day.
