Welcome to Malmesbury Squadron Air Training Corps
Commanding Officers Foreword
The Air Training Corps (ATC or sometimes referred to as ‘Air Cadets’) offers an incredible range of activities and training for young people from 12 years upwards.
Malmesbury (992) Squadron has a dedicated team of Commissioned and Civilian instructors who hold qualifications in many different areas, allowing us to run all kinds of activities – from adventure training and the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, to live rifle firing, clay target shooting and radio training, from fieldcraft to foot drill, Sport up to a national level or just a local area 5 a side tournament.
All of the activities we offer use the appropriate staff, and most are at very low (or no) cost to the Cadet. We are funded by the RAF and MoD to enable us to offer flying and gliding, which includes Solo & Pilot Development schemes, Week 'Camps' to active RAF Stations here and overseas!
Air Cadets can also achieve individual qualifications - Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards, National Navigation Awards, and BTEC qualifications in aviation and Public Services, however, the most important things a Cadet will gain are life skills - leadership, teamwork, communication, problem solving, public speaking and perhaps most importantly integrity and self-discipline.
Have a look around our website, and maybe you’ll see some areas that you might like to have a go at. There’s a lot to try, loads to get involved with, people to meet, lifelong friends to make and places to go and most importantly memories to be made in our quest for venture adventure.
