Former Commanders

Many former Cadet Squadron Commanders, and other senior cadets, graduated from the Cadet Program and went on to have very successful flying, military, and policing careers. If they were to be asked, most – if not all of them – would credit their many successes and accomplishments to the time they spent with 540 Sqn.
