International Air Cadet Exchange (IACE)

THE INTERNATIONAL AIR CADET EXCHANGE
                                  “a world of friendship and aviation
                                                   1947 – 2007

The summer of 2007 represents an important milestone for The International Air Cadet Exchange Association (IACEA) and the Royal Canadian Air Cadets. For 60 years now Canada’s Air Cadets have been participating in exchanges with countries throughout the world.

IACEA MISSION

The mission is to serve the member nations, organizations, and participating cadets by conducting top quality exchanges of aerospace-minded young people that:

  • Fosters international understanding, goodwill, and friendship among those involved.

  • Promotes an interest in aviation and space, including highlighting career opportunities.

  • Introduces cadets to the global nature of aerospace manufacturing.

  • Provides cadets an insight into the essential interdependence of nations.

  • Shares the values of cultural diversity, character development, and the potential of all young people to better themselves.

The first exchange of 46 cadets and two escort officers was carried out between Canada and the U K in 1947 and was the foundation for all future development.  Since then, many countries joined the program and Canadian Air Cadets can now visit countries such as Australia, Belgium, United States., France, Hong-Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Singapore, Sweden and Turkey.  These three weeks trips are a unique opportunity for more than 70 outstanding cadets from all over Canada to experience an unforgettable experience in discovering the world.
