Are you a fan of aviation, action, adventure, sports and getting to know people?
Then you are in the right place.

In the Air Training Corps (ATC), you have the opportunity to fly a plane before you can even drive a car.  
At the same age as learning to drive, you could attain your private pilot license. You can learn interesting facts about aviation whilst working towards a BTEC in Aviation Studies, a nationally recognised qualification equivalent to 4 GCSEs (A* - C).

Alongside aviation, we also offer a wide range of activities including basic navigation, expedition training, competition shooting, climbing, a variety of sports, and much, much more. 

Please browse the site and contact us if you want to know more about any aspect of joining or supporting the Squadron.
