Hello and a warm welcome to 1391 (Romsey) Squadron’s website, whether you are a member of the squadron, a potential new recruit or simply a member of the public.
This website is intended to give an overview of the activities and ethos of the Air Training Corps, which can be experienced as a cadet or as an adult volunteer, both on 1391 or wider Air Cadet Organisation.
There is no getting away from the fact that we are a uniformed youth organisation which is supported by the Royal Air Force – but where else can you take the controls of a glider, receive weapons training and fire a rifle, take part in expeditions in wild country or spend a week on RAF station in the school Holidays? What’s more, you can gain real qualifications through the academic training programme in Aviation Studies and in time, gain BTEC’s, alongside the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme – all of which are recognised by employers.
We are confident that you will share our enthusiasm about the rewards that the Air Cadets have to offer and are always happy to welcome new cadets and adult volunteers to our close knit Squadron. Feel free to visit us on a parade night if you feel that you are ready to take on a new challenge.
Flight Lieutenant Julia Whalvin RAFAC
