Dates of existence
Airborne Section Trial and Evaluation Establishment was a part of the Base Training Branch for Canadian Forces Base (CFB) in Rivers, Manitoba, until 1967, when it became a Lodger Unit under Mobile Command. CFB Rivers was originally opened prior to the Second World War as No. 1 Central Navigation School. With the outbreak of the War, Camp Rivers also became a training centre for Army pilots and parachutists as well as flying instructors from the Army, Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) and Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF). As a result of the unification, Camp Rivers was renamed CFB Rivers. It was closed in September 1971.
