Join As A Cadet

If you're between the ages of 12 (in year 8) and 16 and you're a fan of aviation, action and adventure, love sports and getting to know people then you're in the right place. Every year nearly 56,000 air cadets and volunteer staff take part in exciting events all over the U.K. and abroad, and you could be one of them soon.

Due to the progressive training syllabus set by the Royal Air Force Air Cadets, 1163 Squadron have three intakes each year:  January, April, and September. 

We have open evenings in March and September so you can come and visit the squadron and see some of the things that our cadets do.

Join As An Adult Volunteer

If you are over the age of 20 and would like to volunteer within the Royal Air Force Air Cadets then please contact us about becoming a Civilian Instructor, from there you can then develop a wide range of skills and potentially become a uniformed member of staff. You don't need any special skill or military background, all you need is the enthusiasm to help the cadets achieve their true potential.

There are options to become an SNCO (Senior Non Commissioned Officer) or you can go through the process of commission to be an RAFAC Officer.
