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:

The priority for the time being is issuing and exchanging FTU components. These can be collected via contactless curbside pickup beginning in November: If your uniform is ready for pickup, sign up for a specific time slot here, and then arrive at 8 Clements Ave (“The Trailer”) at your designated time, open your trunk, and the item will be placed inside by the staff member (please stay in your vehicle).
* Dropbox will be available for paperwork submission if you are booking a timeslot for supply.
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.
Should you wish to donate to the squadron directly, our registered charity number is 123613523 RR 0029.
Your generous support helps fund a wide range of activities for our cadets.
Virtual Senior Ground School will take place on Tuesday evenings beginning Oct 6! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to participate. The program is open to all cadets, however, you must at least be in level 3, and have had your 15th birthday by Sept 1 this year in order to apply for the summer courses. These sessions are tailored for cadets who will be applying for the Glider Pilot Training Course or the Power Pilot Training Course (GPTC or PPTC).
