Good day and welcome to the official website of the 199 St Vital Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron.
Air Cadets is a program for youths between 12 and 18 years of age. Through a variety of interactive instruction and events Cadets gain knowledge and skills with the aims to develop attributes of good citizenship and leadership, promote physical fitness and stimulate an interest in the air element of the Canadian Forces.
Our Squadron is one of many Squadrons across Canada to offer this exciting program. We parade out of the Louis Riel Arts and Technology Centre on Thursday nights throughout the school year and have several optional activities throughout the week.
Inside this site you will find information regarding the Air Cadet Program, 199 Squadron itself as well as upcoming and past activities. Should you have any questions please feel free to call us, send us an email or drop in on a Thursday night.

This is a question we are often asked. Costs many people associate with the Cadet Program include:
All these items are provided at No Cost to the Cadet.
We are able to provide our training due to our partnership between the Canadian Forces and the Air Cadet League. While the program is provided at no cost Cadets will be expected to assist in fundraising opportunities put forward by our Sponsoring Committee. The fundraising is put towards our training facilities and costs associated with some optional activities.
Air Cadets participate in a range of dynamic training over the course of the school year and over the summer at one of our Summer Training Centres.
Our Squadron training is delivered on Thursday nights in a way to provide Cadets a practical opportunity to use the knowledge they learn. Cadets will further develop a sense of responsibility, teamwork and leadership and many skills they can use throughout their lives.
Cadets are also welcome to participate in optional training throughout the week in drill, marksmanship, band and aviation.
Select Cadets have the opportunity to attend Summer Training Centres. First year Cadets may attend a two week General Training Course while Cadets progressing through the program become eligible for three and six week specialist courses to further develop the knowledge learned at the Squadron.
Many of our Cadets have moved on to rewarding careers both within the Canadian Forces and the civilian market. The discipline, leadership and instructional skills that they learn and develop are often transferred into their chosen profession.
