Information: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

In an effort to minimize the impact of COVID-19 and to prioritize the health and safety of our personnel, the RCAF is suspending all support to air shows and other special events until further notice. 

The Canadian Forces (CF) Snowbirds, 431 Air Demonstration Squadron are a Canadian icon comprised of Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members and National Defence Public Service employees.

Pilots, technicians (aviation, avionics, aircraft structure, supply), mobile support operators, resource management support clerks, an engineering officer, a logistics officer and a public affairs officer representing all three elements (Army, Navy and Air Force), work as a team to bring thrilling performances to the Canadian public. Serving as ambassadors of the CAF, the CF Snowbirds demonstrate the high level of skill, professionalism, teamwork, discipline and dedication inherent in the men and women of the CAF and they inspire the pursuit of excellence wherever they go in North America.

A brief squadron history, motto and battle honours can be found on the Deparment of National Defence's Directorate of History and Heritage webpage.
