No. 445 Squadron RCAF was a test and evaluation squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Force.

Formed in 1967 at CFB Cold Lake, 448 Squadron replaced the Air Armament Evaluation Detachment (1954) and can be traced back to the RCAF Test and Development Establishment (1940).[1]

The 448 merged with the Royal Canadian Navy Air Test and Development Experimental Squadron or VX10 Squadron (1952) and Central Experimental and Proving Establishment (1951) to form the Aerospace Engineering Test Establishment in 1970.[2]
