Introducing Warrant Officer Salimi, who is an active member with 759 Falcon Squadron. This summer he is one of two very accomplished cadet pilots to achieve their Glider Pilot Instructor certification. This is a significant achievement as the Comox Cadet Flying Training Center has not had cadets qualify for this certification in over ten years.
