How to Join

First Parade Night

What you can gain


You must be in Year 8 or above to join the Air Cadets. If you are interested in joining, just turn up to one of our squadron nights. We assemble every Tuesday and Thursday from 19:00 to 21:30 at RAF Portreath, in the car park. On a cadet’s first night, parents are invited to join us, to fill in consent forms and have a look around.


We expect:

  • Commitment

  • Highest levels of self-discipline, behavior, smartness, manners and appearance

  • Keenness to Have a Go and make the most of chances that come to you

  • Willingness to participate in all aspects of Squadron life, even those that might not be your thing

  • Regular and reliable attendance at Parade Nights and other activities (although we recognize that school schedules can be heavy at times, and we are fully prepared to allow for this)

  • There will always be someone available to talk to about any problems you may experience, and support is part of our way of doing things. We have a Zero Tolerance Policy of any form of bullying.


Sounds good? Then give it a try for a while, and see how you get on - otherwise you will never know.
