41 Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron (RCACS) was formed on 18 October 1941, some six months after the establishment of the Air Cadet League of Canada. World War II was in its third year and Canada was just 74 years old as a country. The Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) had been in existence for a mere 17 years.
Throughout the 2016-17 training year, 41 along with 7 other squadrons across Saskatchewan and many more across Canada will be celebrating an amazing 75 years, at the same time we will all be celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary.
Join us as we commemorate our great history & look skyward to a bright future as new generations of young people continue to learn, serve, & advance through the air cadet program.
