Institutionele geschiedenis

The Royal Air Force (RAF) No. 32 Service Flying Training School (SFTS) was initially numbered No. 10 SFTS. They were stations at Tern Hill, Shropshire, England, however, in November 1940 the school moved to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. At this time the school was renumbered to No. 32 SFTS. On November 3, 1944, No. 32 SFTS closed. During its four year operation, 1207 students graduated from the program in Moose Jaw. In 1952, the base became the No. 2 Flying Training School and later the home of the aerobatic demonstration team, the Snowbirds. The RAF No. 32 SFTS Choir was a male choir from this base.
