The Ottawa International Airport and nearby CFB Uplands, our neighbours to the South, have a history going back to the 1920s. The airport was a centre for military aviation during the Second World War and CFB Uplands was a base in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. The military aviation use is now limited, mainly No. 412 VIP Transport Squadron, while the base provides temporary accommodations.
