Canadian Forces Snowbirds

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds (431 Air Demonstration Squadron) is a Canadian icon comprised of serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces. Their pilots and technicians work as a team to bring thrilling performances to the North American public. Serving as Canadian ambassadors, the Snowbirds demonstrate the Skill, Professionalism and Teamwork inherent in the women and men of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and the Canadian Armed Forces.

This air show season the Canadian Forces Snowbirds will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP), the joint air crew training program launched by Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand during World War Two.

The British Commonwealth Air Training Plan and its contribution to the Second World War air effort and the Allied victory was an important chapter in Canada’s history, leaving a legacy in our communities for generations to come.
