‘Air Cadets’ is a national program that has a seventy year history of developing in youth, girls and boys, the attributes of leadership, involved and active citizenship and physical fitness, all within a safe environment that stimulates an interest in aeronautics. Cadets are not part of the military although the program is a partnership between the Canadian Forces and the Air Cadet League of Canada. We have trained over one million Air Cadets since 1941.
‘Air Cadets’ do a lot of different activities related to flying, gliding, first-aid survival, team sports, music, effective speaking and leadership training, summer camps and international trips, military marching and parades.
The Cadet program is funded by the departments of National Defence in partnership with the civilian Navy League, Army Cadet League and Air Cadet League of Canada. The civilian sponsor requires local community support to meet its obligations that include accommodations, training aide and equipment and program enhancements not otherwise provided. Parents and cadets are expected to participate in and contribute to fundraising as required by the League’s local sponsoring element. There is no registration fee and each Cadets uniform is provided free of cost.
