Atlantic Group

Atlantic Group is comprised of 9 wings in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland.

The Royal Canadian Air Force Association is democratic, non-sectarian and is not affiliated or connected directly or indirectly with any political party or organization.

The Association shall stand for loyalty to the reigning Sovereign and the principles of democratic and ordered government, for a National and united spirit, and for strong and united comradeship among all who have served in Military or Civil Aviation.

The Association shall be an all-ranks organization insofar as its military and ex-military members are concerned and no member shall be entitled to precedence for any reason other than by virtue of elected standing in the Association.

Wings are the grass roots level of the Royal Canadian Air Force Association.  Although the Wings are semi-autonomous and may themselves have individual constitution and by-laws the Association is, in general, a federation of Wings which are controlled by Groups, which in turn are guided by the National Executive Council.

Meetings of the Group are held in January and September at a place and time determined by the Executive, and in May for the Annual General Meeting.

The main Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Group shall be held every second odd year during the month of May, for the purpose of electing, when required, the positions of President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary, and transacting business of the Group.

Wings may offer the Group Executive Council to host the next Annual Group Convention, the AGM shall be held at the same time and place.

Each Wing within the Group shall be entitled to send accredited delegates to a Group meeting as directed by the Group.

RCAF Association Wings

This list is a consolidation of all references ever made to any and all Wings created and/or dissolved in the RCAF Association since inception circa 1 May 1948. The purpose of the list is to serve as a resource, in the event a group of members is determined to strike up a new Wing or reinstate an old Wing. The list is not complete, and the presentation of some entries that may seem incorrect, are in fact historical references to Wings that had existed at one time, but no longer do.
