The RAF Air Cadets comprises the Air Training Corps (ATC) and the Combined Cadet Force (RAF) and whilst the ATC was formally established in 1941 many sections of the CCF (RAF) were also formed on that date. We are looking forward to getting back to "normal". If you are interested in joining the RAF Air Cadets just take a look at https://www.raf.mod.uk/aircadets/ and email adj.2056@rafac.mod.gov.uk

A warm welcome to our new squadron commander Squadron Leader Will Taylor who has volunteered to run the squadron in addition to his main role of Greater Manchester Wing Health & Safety Officer. Will has a long association with the Air Cadets and was CO of a cadet volunteer gliding Squadron for many years. Sadly Pilot Officer Mark Hughes, our previous OC, is moving on to a CCF position where there gain will be our loss. Nevertheless, Mark will remain supernumerary on the squadron to help when time permits. After an outstanding time as our OC we wish Mark all the best in his new role.
