540 Golden Hawks

Royal Canadian Air Cadets

Who are we?

Serving the youth and families of Oakville since 1951.

The Cadet Program is the largest federally sponsored youth development program in Canada.

It is made up of the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets, Royal Canadian Army Cadets, and Royal Canadian Air Cadets.

The Cadet Program provides youth with opportunities to develop valuable life and work skills such as teamwork, leadership, and public speaking, along with personal benefits of increased self-confidence, discipline, initiative, and decision making.

In addition to the core aspects of the tri-element Cadet Program, Air Cadets focus on aviation topics such as principles of flight, navigation, radio communication, meteorology, and aerodrome operation.

Our Squadron also operates a large number of extra-curricular activities such as a military band, precision drill team, air rifle marksmanship team, pilot training, and much more.

We welcome all Oakville youth within the ages of 12 – 18 years old.

Due to high demand for the program, we only accept new recruits at the start of September.

Our Joining Instructions contain more information on the enrollment process.
