Recruitment Nights

You have to be in Year 8 (12-13 years old) to join, but you can also join anytime up until your 17th birthday.

If you’re a fan of aviation, action and adventure, love sports and getting to know people then you’re in the right place. Welcome to the Air Cadet Organisation (ACO). Better known as the Air Cadets.

We regularly run intake nights for new recruits throughout the year. This is an evening for you to come down to the squadron and find out first-hand what the Air Cadets has to offer you. If you or someone you know is up for the challenge and would like to know more then come and see us.

Our next recruitment night will be held:

There is no need to pay and display between the hours of a normal cadet night. There are three buildings in the area, one belongs to us, the other two are sea and army cadets.

Medication: If you have any medical conditions, please inform the staff upon arrival, also please ensure you carry any medication (ie. inhaler or epi-pen) with you and make us aware of where you keep it.
