International Air Cadet Exchange (IACE)
The International Air Cadet Exchange (IACE) Program began in 1947 when Canada and the United Kingdom arranged a bi-lateral exchange of cadets .
Over the next few years the scheme was adopted in the USA and several European countries. Today, the scheme has a membership of some 20 nations including Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan. The exchange encourages international understanding, co operation and goodwill among young people from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds – all sharing an interest in aviation.
The annual exchange involves several hundred participants and takes place during two to three weeks in July/August . Many long-term friendships are forged during IACE visits, often described by cadets as their career highlight.
