340 Griffin Squadron - Port Elgin



What is the "Air Cadets"?

The Royal Canadian Air Cadets is a national organization for Canadian youth between the ages of 12 and 19. This is a result of a partnership between the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Forces and the Air Cadet League of Canada.

To become members of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets, interested youth must join a local Squadron. There are over 440 Air Cadet Squadrons across Canada.

The local Squadron meets for regular training weekly through the school year. Optional training, including sports, marksmanship and other activities are available as well.

In July and August many Summer Training Activities are available to cadets. These provide valuable training at no cost.
