A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Friday, June 14, 2019, at 22 Wing/Canadian Forces Base North Bay, Ontario, to officially open the Mission Training Centre (MTC), a digital battleground that will train the next generation of Aerospace Controllers and Aerospace Control Operators.

The MTC provides high fidelity simulations of the radar, radios, and data links encountered in the Canadian Air Defense Sector (CADS). Advanced exercise generation software will deliver scenarios tailored for individuals, small groups, or full mission crews. Network connectivity will allow operators to train with other RCAF fleets, jointly with the Royal Canadian Navy and Canadian Army, and even with international partners, building the basic individual and team skills needed to become effective warfighters, all from their home units.
