The Stations of the Canadian Air Force

A station is a permanent Air Force operations location. Many stations are aerodromes, or airbases, being the home to one or more flying squadrons. Other stations are training units, administrative units, headquarters (HQ), or carry out ground-based operational tasks.

The Canadian Air Force has operated from many diverse locations in its history. These include all across Canada form the Atlantic to the Pacific and up in the Arctic. As well, during times of war, the Air Force has operated from many bases overseas. During the Second World War the RCAF operated from England, Northeast Africa, Sicily, Italy, Burma and after D-Day from France, the Netherlands and Germany.
