The Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum has initiated the CATP Museum Canada 150 Project to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. Throughout 2017, we will post 150 vignettes (small stories) about the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan which was created by British Commonwealth Countries to supply trained aircrew to their air forces during World War II. Primarily located in Canada, It was a huge effort which trained 131,000 air crewmembers in over 100 schools located in every province in Canada. Our vignettes will describe all things related to Canada and the other Allied countries during World War Two including life in the air force, aircraft, schools, personal histories of those who took part in this effort and many other aspects of the `Plan.’ We hope you find our vignettes interesting and informative.
