For over 29 years, 140 Aurora Squadron has been home to several hundred cadets, from across York Region. Involvement in Air Cadets provides youth aged 12 - 19 with opportunities to pursue interests in aeronautics; develop leadership abilities; demonstrate citizenship, promote physical fitness and stimulate an interest in the Canadian Armed Forces.
The Squadron's alumni have gone on to careers in aviation, business and the military.
This hard-working organization is a prime example of an organization that considers community involvement and betterment an important part of its mission, while exemplifying its motto:
Through Excellence to the Stars
