At the heart of everything we do are the people who define the RCAF as an incredible institution. Our people enable Air and Space Power every single day: in domestic operations such as search and rescue, responding to natural disasters, and protecting the skies above us. Your Air Force is always there when called upon. Our people are doing good deeds around the world every day in overseas operations, contributing to global security and stability. As we proudly celebrate 100 years of aviation excellence in 2024, we invite you to join us in commemorating our history, recognizing our people for their achievements, and looking forward to the exciting future of Your Air Force.

Chief Warrant Officer W.J. Hall

I am exceptionally proud of all members of the RCAF team. We can proudly look back upon the many accomplishments of Your Air Force over the past 100 years because of their dedication, commitment and courage. We are here today because of the aviators who served before us; their legacy will continue to inspire current and future generations. I commend our aviators and their families for their devotion to the RCAF and to Canada. Please join us in 2024 as we recognize the achievements of our first 100 years and pay tribute to our aviators, past and present.

Major General J. Speiser-Blanchet
