We guarantee that you won’t find the incredible combination of adventure, opportunity and fun that Air Cadets offers anywhere else. Cadets and adult volunteers all gain the same second-to-none experience where you can make lasting friendships and build upon your confidence, skills and achievements. This section will give you all the facts about getting started in an exciting new direction.


There’s a number of ways you can go about finding more. This page is dedicated to information for potential recruits. Contacting is not the end of the process, read on even if you just want to know more!

196 Squadron parades Tuesday and Thursday at 19:00 – 21:45.

 See the about page for the full address.

The Squadron holds Open Evenings throughout the year, and if you’re thinking of joining it’s a great opportunity to find out more about the Squadron and enrol on that intake. Please note, we have limited spaces available for new cadets and so operate on a first come first serve basis.

Register today to be on our next intake!
