I haven't seen one of these yet, so I thought I would start it up.

I'm flying in from Vancouver, Going in for Aircraft Structures Technician.

Are you guys buying your own running shoes before going or can you buy a specific kind/colour at CFLRS. Was gonna buy before leaving but not sure now don't wanna have to buy another pair because the ones I bought weren't standard. Also for bathing suits theyre supplied by the QM I'm guessing that means theyre military issued and we don't have to bring our own?

The shoes CFLRS issue are junk, and I'm not sure what selection the Canex there will have. If you have a favorite brand/model you like, buy it and bring it with you.

If the joining instructions say to bring a bathing suit, bring one or buy from the Canex. I don't recall being issued a bathing suit.



Have a look through this.

Equipment

All candidates arriving for training at CFLRS, whether they are new or current CF members will require the items listed in part 1 and 2 of Annex B to begin their basic training. Items listed in part 1 can be brought by candidates or purchased at their expense at Canex while items in part 2 will be exclusively purchased at Canex after their arrival. Candidates who are already CF members will also arrive with the military equipment (in serviceable condition) listed in part 3 of Annex B to this document.
