Welcome to 742 National Capital Air Cadet Squadron!

We are an exciting and large squadron of approximately 300 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. We are also on Facebook and Twitter @742Squadron.



Drill Team & General Ground School may be rescheduled. Supply is closed. Check the Event Calendar.

@Drill Team: email us if you are available to practice TOMORROW (Friday Feb 23) from 19h00-20h30 at Ecole Michel Dupuis (alternate location). We will confirm this evening on whether a practice is scheduled or not.

Don't Be on THIS LIST!

Administration is reviewing Cadet files weekly! 


Some Cadets have not returned their Annual Validation Forms!  This means NO Summer Camps and as per the Commanding Officer - no longer able to attend Cadet Activities.  How to fix this?  Send us an email with your Cadet name and we will reply with the form that you need to verify and return to us.


Health Cards do expire, and when they do, we need a copy of the new one to put on our file.  If you have expired information, it can also prevent you from attending Cadet Activities, or from going to Summer Camps.  How to fix this?  Stop by Administration and provide us with a photocopy, or allow us to photocopy it for you and place in your file!
