Recruit Intake Days

We do not currently have a date scheduled for our next recruit intake day. However please follow us on Facebook at /1216ATC for updates.

Intake days are a great introduction to the Air Cadets and allow you to find out more about the Squadron while meeting others who are interested in joining.

To register your interest please email and we will be in touch to provide more details.

Join as a cadet

So, are you ready to take the first step towards all the opportunities and benefits that the Air Cadets can offer you?

It's important to know that we're not a recruiting organisation for the Services (but it's great if you decide you want to join later on). We're not interested in anything but you and your potential, and will help you get the most from your experience as a cadet.

Worried about fitting in? Equality is a central part of the Air Cadets' ethic. The cadet experience is open to everyone, so whatever your nationality, background or ability, whether you're male or female, if you're in year 8 and above and under 17 years old you can join us.

What's in it for you?
Aside from flying, sports, target shooting, adventure training and great fun? You'll soon find that being an air cadet is its own reward - you constantly see the benefits of your own efforts, building on your achievements and earning BTECs and DoE Awards. You'll be expected to take part in as many of the activities we run as possible, but with what's on offer you won't need much persuading!

We have high standards to maintain as we are a 'military' youth organisation and you'll naturally take pride in your uniform (we supply that) and appearance. You'll be well mannered and self-disciplined. You'll be joining an organisation of which you'll be very proud.

What are you waiting for?
We hold intake days throughout the year to allow us to provide an introdution into the Air Cadets and allow you to join as part of a group of new recruits. If you are interested in joining us please click on the below link to register your interest and we will contact you with details closer to the time.

Don't be shy about taking that first step - it may be the best thing you've ever done!

What did you do last weekend?

Staff Awards
Adult Volunteers

We are only able to provide the wide range of activities on offer thanks to the team of adults that support the Squadron. Whether you have a particular skill or experience that you would like to offer, want to help us with community engagement and fundraising, or wish to help support us in any way you can, please send us an email and we can arrange for you to come along for an evening and discuss the different options available.
