What is 180 Mosquito Squadron and the Royal Canadian Air Cadets?

The Royal Canadian Air Cadets is a national organization for youth aged 12 to 18, sponsored and run by the Air Cadet League (a civilian organization) and the Department of National Defence. The organization is made up many training centres, gliding centres, and most importantly, the squadrons, of which every cadet is a part of. 180 Mosquito Squadron is named after the De Havilland DH-98 Mosquito, one of the most successful military aircraft of World War II, and is one of over 450 Air Cadet squadrons across Canada.

180 Squadron is located in central Toronto near Lawrence Ave W and Avenue Rd. Cadets are asked to commit to attending every Friday evening at Glenview Public School. We also offer optional programs such as a Marching Band and Drill Team who practices on Saturdays, Range and Rifle Drill Team who practice Sundays and a sports program who practice Monday evenings. Further we have a flying scholarship program as cadets maybe able to obtain their Pilots licence and other outings such as weekend field exercises, parades, and competitions.

All Cadets are required to assist with fundraising and are also required to sell 1 book of fundraining lottary tickets ($60 value). They are also required to attend fundraising events such as TAG Days, Poppy selling and Red Nose Selling. These fundraising activities are required to help off set our large required budget. Such as school permit fee's of over $27 000.
