904 Wing Home
Introduction to The 904 Wing
The 904 Wing of the Royal Canadian Air Force Association (RCAFA) meets in Ajijic located on the shores of Lake Chapala, Mexico. Lake Chapala is about 40 km south of Guadalajara, which is the capital of Jalisco State and the second largest city in Mexico. The 904 Wing is the only RCAFA wing in Mexico.
Who we are
We are a group of former military and civilian aviators and aviation enthusiasts who gather each month to share a common interest. Most of us are full-time residents of the Lake Chapala area. However, about one-third of the 904 Wing members are 'snowbirds', who live in Canada but spend three to six months a year at Lake Chapala.
What we doWe have six regular meetings a year, most with a theme. These provide the opportunity to meet aviation-minded people in a structured but informal setting. We also participate in additional activities beyond the regular meeting schedule. Refer to the menu on the left hand side of the screen and click on Program to see the current year's schedule of events. The Wing actively encourages spouse or partner involvement in many of its activities. As a result, members have the opportunity to share a rich social life. We also use the Wing as a forum for the exchange of information and experiences on subjects ranging from medical care to car repair. Many members, especially those who are new to Mexico, have found these exchanges to be of great benefit. Many friendships have evolved from Wing membership.
