About Us

  • We are one squadron among the many in the RAF Air Cadets. Better known as the 'Air Cadets', we’re part of a UK-wide cadet force with more than 40,000 members aged between 12 and 20 years

  • We're sponsored by the Royal Air Force and can give you hands-on experience of activities and courses that will challenge and develop your skills to help you succeed in whatever you want to do. HRH The Duchess of Cambridge is also our Honorary Air Commandant!

  • Our aims are to:

    • Promote and encourage a practical interest in aviation and the Royal Air Force among young people

    • Provide training which will be useful in the Services and civilian life

    • Encourage the spirit of adventure and develop qualities of leadership and good citizenship

  • And there's one more important thing - it's a lot of fun!
