Welcome to CASARA Calgary

CASARA stands for the Civil Air Search And Rescue Association. We are a volunteer group that assists the Canadian military in searching for overdue or missing aircraft, and Emergency Locator Transmitter signals (ELT’s).

The mission of the Civil Air Search and Rescue Association (CASARA) is to support Canada’s Search and Rescue (SAR) program and to promote aviation safety.

The Civil Air Search and Rescue Association (CASARA) will continue to evolve and support the Canadian Search and Rescue (SAR) and Aviation Safety Programs through leadership, continuous training of its volunteers and education of the general aviation community.
