10 Field Technical Training Squadron (10 FTTS) was formed at 4 Wing Cold Lake (Alberta, Canada) in 1961 to conduct technical training on the CF-104 Starfighter aircraft. Since that time, 10 FTTS has also provided training on the CF-5 Freedom Fighter, the CT-33 Silver Star, and starting in 1982, the CF-18 Hornet. It now also includes a Detachment located at 3 Wing, Bagotville (Quebec).

Their Mission: 10 FTTS will support CF-18 fighter aircraft operations by training highly effective technicians ready to meet any maintenance challenge in the fields of aircraft structure, avionics, air weapons and aviation systems, doing so in both official languages. 10 FTTS is represented by an Owl and their motto is ‘’Habilis Facere’’ (To make procificient).

4 Wing Cold Lake is the busiest fighter base in Canada. It provides general purpose, multi-role, combat capable forces in support of domestic and international roles of Canada’s Air Force. Home of fighter pilot training for the Canadian Forces, 4 Wing attracts Top Gun crews from all over the world to our annual air combat exercise, Maple Flag.
