Speak to OC is first step to understand the options available to you.
Consider how many staff you have, or think you will have post lockdown. When I came back as staff the first time around the squadron I was on had an OC and a few nice old chaps that would do the odd lecture or project but it was me and the boss doing 95% of activities which with the planning took up nearly all of my spare time. A few cadets aged out and went straight to staff, rule at the time was minimum 6 months away from own squadron, and nearly all left within a couple years. In the next few years there could be a number of life reasons that affect your ability to commit and you don’t want the added stress of feeling you have to be there and burning out.
Personally I decided I had outgrown the cadets at 17 and went off to pursue other things. I know of a number of my former cadets who left or aged out and then came back after a couple of years and are proving to be valuable CFAV.
I am guessing your 19, so CWO would maybe add pride would give you an additional 2 years as a ‘cadet’, why would you want to do that and not start the process to CFAV when you turn 20?
The paperwork and process now is quite onerous so you should be prepared for that although some may already be in place with you being a staff cadet.
Good luck whatever way you decide to proceed, I can sympathize as one of my own children is in a similar situation and will have lost almost the entirety of their last 18 month.
