Who we are:

The Air Training Corps (ATC) is a British youth organisation sponsored by the Ministry of Defence and the Royal Air Force.  A Full Time Reserve Service RAF officer serves Commandant Air Cadets at the rank of Air Commodore.

The majority of staff are volunteers although some are paid for full-time work. Many ATC cadets go on to join the RAF or other services, however the ATC is no longer set up as a recruiting organisation.

444 (Shoreditch) Squadron, Royal Air Force Air Cadets are one of the London's high achieving Squadrons.

Recruiting from the London Borough of Hackney the 444 pride themselves on “always putting in their best, through courage and commitment, through hardship, to the skies”.

They have been providing a challenging, informative and fun experience for young men and women since 1941.

What we do:

Activities include learning first aid skills, sport, adventurous training, ceremonial drill, rifle shooting, fieldcraft, powered aircraft and glider flying, and other outdoor activities.

Week-long trips to RAF stations, or camps offer adventure training and help cadets gain experience of military life. Some also gain flying experience in RAF gliders and RAF training aircraft.

How to get involved:

Cadet membership can begin from the start of School Year 8. New members will join as a junior cadet and can earn positions of increasing responsibility in a military rank structure, as well as having increasing skill and competence recognised in a classification scheme.

If you are a young adult aged 12-17 and you think the Air Cadets might be something that would interest you, then get in touch with the organisation on the details above.

Service as a cadet ends at the age of 20 however if you are aged over 20 and think you might be able to help the service run it’s programmes, then they would also be interested in hearing from you. No previous experience is required
