The 211 Air Cadet Squadron was formed in 1942 by Kiwanian Vic Castledine, who became the first Commanding Officer of the squadron. His son Allan Castledine, who has been with our club since 1951 and was our Club President in 1961, was the first Air Cadet.
The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa's support for the Squadron continues and include both financial and volunteer support to continue great job the Squadron does in building tomorrow's leaders.
The 211 Squadron is one of 455 across Canada, part of the Air Cadet League of Canada, and the squadron maintains a web site.
During the school year, the Squadron meets at Notre Dame High School (710 Broadview Ave, Ottawa, K2A 2M2 ) each Wednesday evening. Meetings start at 18:30 and youths between 12 and 19 are welcome to join.
The Squadron has a phone service 613-722-8292 (press 1 then 473-0211#) where messages can be left and additional information on events will be available.
