Welcome to 742 National Capital Air Cadet Squadron!


We are an exciting and large squadron of approximately 250 cadets and 20-25 staff members. In addition to our core program, we offer a variety of optional activities for youth between the ages of 12 and 18.  Feel free to check out the website for more information on the Cadet Program and 742 Squadron. Follow us @742squadron on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram:



ATTENTION ALL: Is your name on this list?

742 Squadron is being asked to confirm our membership numbers. We have over 80 cadets who show up in our system as being absent for at least 60 days this year. Please have a look at the attached pdf list. If your name is listed you have three choices:
1. If you have been attending classes virtually and are on the list. Please email 742Squadron@gmail.com so we can correct our attendance.
2. If you do plan to come back to cadets once we return to in-person training, please email 742Squadron@gmail.com. (Even if you have advised us, please confirm your intention to return as part of this validation exercise.)
3. If you do not plan to return to cadets, please notify us at 742squadron@gmail.com. We will also coordinate an appropriate time for a safe return of squadron equipment.
Please reply to us by Monday 30 Nov 2020. If you do not contact us, your name will be removed from 742 Squadron's membership. Please note that should you wish to return to cadets at a later date, as long as you have not reached 19 years of age, we can re-activate your membership at that time.
To the rest of our cadets, if you see a friends name on the list, please check in with them to make sure they're ok and encourage to reach out to us at 742Squadron@gmail.com

Google Meet Guideline Change

Lights, Action, Camera! We want to see you. Moving forward, please wear your field training uniform (or blue uniform if you don't have FTUs) on regular training nights and full elemental uniform on CO's parades. The CO has directed that all cameras are to be on while attending virtual training. This will foster a connection between our cadets and improve the safety and security of our classes. Don't forget, please be mindful of your surroundings and let others around you know that you are on camera while participating in 742's virtual activities. The Google Meet Guidelines can be found here.
