Welcome to the 2384 Squadron Website.
“So, are you ready to take the first step towards all the opportunities and benefits that the Air Training Corps can offer you?
It’s important to know that we’re not a recruiting organisation for the Services [but it’s great if you decide you want to join later on]. We’re not interested in anything but you and your potential, and will help you get the most from your experience as a cadet.
Aside from flying, sports, target shooting, adventure training and great fun? You’ll soon find that being an air cadet is its own reward – you constantly see the benefits of your own efforts, building on your achievements and earning BTECs and DofE Awards. You’ll be expected to take part in as many of the activities we run as possible, but with what’s on offer you won’t need much persuading!
We have high standards to maintain as we are a ‘military’ youth organisation and you’ll naturally take pride in your uniform [we supply that] and appearance. You’ll be well mannered and self-disciplined. You’ll be joining an organisation of which you’ll be very proud.
There are many opportunities available to Cadets within the ATC and you are encouraged to take part in as many as you possibly can, as the more you do the more you will enjoy. You will meet new people, learn new skills and take part in activities many can only dream about. By fully taking part in the activities, you will learn the basics of leadership, self-discipline and teamwork, all of which will be of benefit in whatever career you choose. But the ATC is also about enjoying yourself: so come along and get stuck in .. we dare you.”
