The Squadron is open to all boys and girls over 12 in Year 8 and under 18. At 18, subject to their previous service, cadets may progress to Instructor Cadet status and remain in the Corps as a cadet until age 20.

Adults with an interest in aviation and the motivation to give our youth a leg up are also welcome to join the Corps, either as a Civilian Instructor, or in uniform. A rewarding career as a volunteer awaits those who have something special to give - a little time and effort!

In these pages you will find information about our training programme, as well as the adventure training, sports and ceremonial activities we organise and take part in. In the news section there are article written by cadets about their various experiences. Squadron members can log in to access the diary, training materials and to contribute news articles to the site.

We hope you find the content of this site interesting, our contact page has all the details you need to get in touch and get involved!
