  Welcome to 2056 (Knutsford) Squadron

Are you up for fun, adventure, incredible experiences and making new friends? Are you looking for something to give you the edge in life? Then welcome to the Air Cadet Organisation (ACO). Better known as the 'Air Cadets', we're a UK-wide cadet force with more than 40,000 members aged between 12 (school year 8) and 20 years.

We're sponsored by the Royal Air Force and through the partnersip with the RAF we can give you hands-on experience of activities and courses that you would simply not get outside of the ACO. We hope to challenge and develop your skills to help you succeed in whatever you want to do!



2056 (Knutsford) Squadron is one of many squadrons that make up Greater Manchester Wing, part of the national youth organisation, the Air Training Corps. Our Commanding Officer, together with his staff team are waiting to welcome new recruits to the squadron. If you want to join, check out the Join Us page and send us a message. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
