Thinking of Joining?


As a Cadet in the Air Training Corps (ATC), you could fly in military aircraft or take part in aerobatics, learn to fly a glider or go on a UK or overseas camp.

Then there’s shooting, parachuting, caving, climbing, adventure training, sports, helping communities, parades and even The Duke of Edinburgh Award! 

There’s lots to choose from so it’s up to you to find the activities you enjoy. But the more you put in to the ATC, the more you’ll get out of it.

Who can join?

Anyone between 12 (& in Year 8 at school) and 17 years of age can join and, with over 40,000 members, the ATC is the world’s biggest youth air training organisation. Cadets can stay in the corps until their 18th birthday (or 20th birthday should they apply and be successfull for Staff cadet service).

How do you join?

If you are interested in joining us you can come and see us on one of our parade nights or Contact Us for more information.

We hold open nights twice a year and intake nights four times a year. Please visit or contact us and we will give you dates of when you can next join.

The ATC isn’t a recruiting service for the RAF, it’s more of an organisation for young people, male and female, who are up for a challenge. Membership costs are kept to the bare minimum and we even supply most of your uniform.
