Squadron History

The 211 Ottawa Kiwanis Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron was founded on 13 November 1942. In the more than seventy years that it has existed, it was always proudly sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa. The squadron’s first Commanding Officer was Vic Castledine and Allan Casteldine was recruited as first cadet.

Squadron Sponsoring Committee

The Squadron Sponsoring Committee (SSC) is the local representative of the Air Cadet League of Canada. The 211 SSC is composed of 5 to 11 interested parents (of current and former cadets) and other adult community members.  SSC membership is decided on a yearly basis through an election held in May or June for the following training year.  The 211 SSC also includes a representative of the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa.

The SSC works in partnership with the Squadron staff (Officers and Civilian Instructors) to support the local training program in order to achieve the three goals of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets, which are to develop leadership and good citizens, to promote physical fitness, and to stimulate an interest in aviation.

The SSC is responsible for:

  • Providing suitable facilities for cadet training and activities
  • Promoting the Cadet Program to the community
  • Fundraising and managing the squadron’s funds and bank account
  • Ensuring that cadets are evaluated and treated fairly
  • Providing input for major decisions and selections at the Squadron

To join the SSC, applicants must undergo a screening process, including a Vulnerable Sector Screening and Police Check, and must agree to comply with the League’s regulations.  For more information about the SSC, contact the SSC Chair at 211.advisor@cadetsair.ca.
