Central Navigation School
Motto: Scientia Ducit (Knowledge guides)
During the war a Central Navigation School was formed at Rivers, Manitoba, on 11 May 1942, by the amalgamation of Nos. 1 and 2 Air Navigation Schools. The school was disbanded on 15 September 1945, following the termination of hostilities in Europe and the Far East. In the post-war R.C.A.F. the Central Navigation School was formed at Summerside, P.E.I., on 1 August 1951, from the Specialist Training Wing of the Air Navigation School at that station. C.N.S. was relocated at Winnipeg in the summer of 1954.
