Ad­ven­ture trai­ning for mem­bers of ACC

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - NEWS -

Six mi­li­ta­ry mem­bers from the Air Traf­fic Control ( ATC) sec­tion par­ti­ci­pa­ted in ad­ven­ture trai­ning in the Fjord- du- Sa­gue­nay Na­tio­nal Park bet­ween Sep­tem­ber 30th and Oc­to­ber 3rd in or­der to in­crease the co­he­sion and mo­rale of the unit.

For four days and three nights, the ad­ven­tu­rers ta­ck­led the fjord trail, hi­king 41.1 km in to­tal. Ac­cor­ding to par­ti­ci­pants, it was a ful­filling and re­war­ding ex­pe­di­tion in which they were able to per­so­nal­ly chal­lenge them­selves while al­so mo­ti­va­ting their team­mates. Cap­tain Alexandre Brault is a mem­ber of the ATC sec­tion and took part in the trai­ning. "An ex­pe­di­tion of this size could not have ta­ken place wi­thout months of plan­ning and coor­di­na­tion, and above all wi­thout the sup­port of the va­rious units of the Base. The PSP team, the Pre­ven­tive Me­di­cine Unit and the Hos­pi­tal, the Sup­ply Sec­tion and the Trans­port sec­tion. Fi­nal­ly, thank you to the Ope­ra­tions Di­vi­sion," says Cap­tain Brault, ex­pres­sing her gra­ti­tude on be­half of the en­tire team. Fol­lo­wing the ac­ti­vi­ty, the par­ti­ci­pants de­ve­lo­ped a list of les­sons lear­ned du­ring the plan­ning and exe­cu­tion of the ex­pe­di­tion. These les­sons will help im­prove fu­ture ad­ven­ture trai­ning for the ATC sec­tion, which is al­rea­dy in the works for 2017!
