#36 SFTS operated from September 28, 1941 to November 3, 1944.
No. 36 SFTS used Airspeed Oxford aircraft.
In the spring of 1942 construction began on a "relief field" for No. 36 SFTS at Innisfail. The relief field involved one hangar, a control tower, a barracks, motor transport garage, water pumping and water storage facilities, three asphalt runways 3000 feet in length in a triangular pattern with a taxiway and aircraft parking aprons.
