What is CASARA?

CASARA is a national volunteer organization funded by the Department of National Defence. Our volunteers provide air search assistance to the Royal Canadian Air Force, and promote flight safety for general aviation as a means to reduce overall SAR incidents.

When lives are in danger, CASARA volunteers are ready, willing and able to provide assistance. No matter what the challenge, over 1,800 volunteers nationwide are called upon to search for individuals who are lost or in distress.

CASARA has been the umbrella organization for independent provincial and regional groups since 1986. CASARA operates in all 10 provinces and 3 territories with certified pilots, navigators and spotters.
