Directions to 450 Squadron are as follows:
Take Petawawa Boulevard to the main entrance to Garrison Petawawa. Once you drive on to the Garrison, Petawawa Boulevard turns into Menin Road. Continue on Menin Road and turn right on Passchendale Road. Continue on Passchendale Road for approximately 3.5 km and turn left on Brindle Road. Take the first right after you have turned on Brindle Road. This will lead you to Building CC-128. The main entrance is on the left side of the building as you arrive. You can't miss the flags.
