Want to join us?

We guarantee that you won’t find the incredible combination of adventure, opportunity and fun that Air Cadets offers anywhere else and with 26 units across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Young people and adult volunteers all gain the same experience where you can make lasting friendships and build your confidence doing aviation related activities.

Young People 12 (and in Year 8) to 17

Are you looking for a challenge; something to bring out what you’re really capable of? Well, the Air Cadets is where you get to prove it - you may even surprise yourself with what you can achieve. Use the Squadron finder on this site to locate your nearest unit.

Adult Volunteers

If you’re aged over 20 and have something to offer you can volunteer. There is no need for military experience or any form of previous training we can help out on that front. We’re looking for suitable, enthusiastic individuals to help our cadets get the most from their time with us. Use the Squadron finder on this site to locate your nearest unit or telephone our Wing Headquarters on 01962 890728.


We’re committed to keeping parents aware of what we do and the lengths we go to ensure that all our activities are safe, well organised and that our members gain a structured and invaluable experience.
