Angel, if you get a chance while you're there you should check out some of the Canadian aviation museums. There's a lot of NZ's own wartime history tied up in Canada through the EATS and BCATP. Have fun! When willl you be back?
How are you enjoying your time so far in the ATC, is it up to your expectations?

No, it's their nickname. When they were still an RNZAF squadron, the pilots were generally short, and when they landed corsairs it looked like nobody was flying them. Hence the nickname Ghost Squadron. As for my expectations, the ATC are above and beyond all of them.
Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.

Hi. Good luck to all of the NZ ATC Squadrons. I served in the UK ATC for 30 years receiving the Cadet Forces Long Service Medal and Clasp and when I retired I received The Commandants Commendation. The Air Training Corps is big thing in the UK, Most towns and cities have their own Squadrons and many RAF Stations open their doors for annual camps.
