Becoming a cadet

So, are you ready to take the first step towards all the opportunities and benefits that we 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 between 12 (and in year 8  at school) and 17 years old you can join us.

The maximum age for entry is 17 years old, therefore you can request to join us anytime between your 12th and 17th birthday. If you are above that age group and still want to enjoy all of our activities and more, you could join as a volunteer. 

 

We always welcome personal visits by potential cadets (ideally accompanied by a parent or guardian), during one of our Parade Nights – these are Tuesday and Friday evenings. 

 

We have specific entry dates usually one in the spring and one in autumn, but we will tell you more about this when you visit. Just come along and see if you like it - you don't have to join, but at least check out what you might be missing.

 

We will discuss what they do, show you Cadet activities and answer any questions you or your parents/guardians may have.

 

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

 

Fill out the form on the Contact us page and we will be intouch as soon as possible.

Flt Lt Jan Smith RAFAC 

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our Commanding Officer Flt Lt Jan Smith RAFAC. 

She was truely dedicated to our squadron and the young people. She worked hard to ensure that each and every cadet did the best they could and got as much from the organisation as possible. 

She dedicated nearly 30 years to the Air Cadet organisation. She spent 13 of those years as Officer Commanding 607 (Wearmouth) Squadron in a role in which she helped to inspire so many Cadets and Adult Volunteers. 
 
Boss you will be truly missed.

Our thoughts are with her family at this time.
