READ SEARCH TIPS FIRST
Further RCAF information is on our Pages Relating to Canada and our RCAF Notes Database

Blue headings = Sort on that column. To search on single digit Squadron add 'sqd' to Search e.g. 7 sqd
This database lists all known RCAF flying-related personnel who served 1939 - 1945 and onwards in many cases.
In November 2017 François Dutil began adding extensive information and many images from his research files,
for which we are grateful. Please contact us via our Helpdesk if you have additional information or images.
"Conversion from the original data held as images of old teletype sheets must have taken Major Paradie years.
The Paradie database is as close to a treasure as the World will see.” François Dutil

DUPLICATES EXIST IN THIS DATABASE
We have integrated entries from several databases in the Paradie Archive and as a result there may be more than one entry for a given individual. To ensure you read all the data we have on a person, use the Service Number (without the prefix J/ P/ R/ etc.) to perform a further search for more information on that person.
DATA ALIGNMENT IN PROCESS OF BEING ADJUSTED
Owing to problems with encoding methods, some records require manual adjustment to bring data elements within the record into alignment. This is a lengthy and ongoing process. If the record you are looking at is hard to read, it means we have yet to make the appropriate manual adjustments, so send us a message via the Helpdesk and we will correct that record.
SEARCHING ON SERIAL NUMBERS
Most records were originally encoded with aircraft serial numbers in the format AB 123. The standard is to use the format AB123. We have a long term project underway to change all serial numbers to the standard form, but with 50,000+ records this is a long process. Try 123 by itself.

Search now permitted on 2 character minimum (previously 3)
