Join Air Cadets


“Man must rise above the Earth—to the top of the atmosphere and beyond—for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives.”

Welcome to one of the premier youth programs in Canada. With nearly 75 years of rich history, tradition and tens of thousands of Air Cadet graduates, you are truly in for the ‘flight of your life.’

Air Cadets is a program geared to youth between the ages of 12 and 18.  While the ‘Air’ in our program will give you the excitement of flying a glider or airplane, we have plenty of other fun, rewarding and challenging opportunities just waiting for your participation.
