As per our last post, you should know that the Careers in Aviation Expo 2019 is completely free for cadets using code CADET19. The expo itself is on Saturday September 21st from 8am-3:15pm and ground school is being moved to the following Sunday to accommodate cadets wishing to attend both. Lunch is provided and dietary concerns will be accommodated. Dress in your uniform, C2 dress standard, if you don't know what that is, check out "Uniform Standards" under the Resources page. For recruits, please come in black pants and a white button up.
There were some concerns expressed last Tuesday about being unable to register for "Breakout Sessions" when going through the Eventbrite website to claim your free ticket. As of right now, these sessions are full. However, you can still attend the expo, the Breakout Sessions are just one of the many things the expo has to offer. Additionally, the organizers are working to add more Breakout Sessions, so even if you are unable to register for the Breakout Sessions currently listed, you may still be able to attend some on the day of.
Based on the code CADET19 used in registration, the event organizers will be reserving space in coming breakout sessions that they think the cadets will enjoy most, like "Flight Training" or "Pilot Tour" sessions. In summary, don't worry about the Breakout Sessions being full at the moment, just choose a time slot to complete the registration process and let the event organizers worry about the rest!
