OC’s Welcome

Welcome to the Squadron website for 162 (Stockport) Squadron Air Training Corps.

The Air Cadets offers young people the opportunity to get involved with activities and learn skills that others can only dream of doing. No other youth organisation gives young people such a broad range of skills so widely respected by civilian and military employers alike.

Together along with my dedicated staff team, we have carefully designed a training programme that covers a wide range of activities including aviation studies, adventure training, target shooting, music and flying. We also offer Cadets the opportunity to earn their Duke of Edinburgh Award, become First Aid qualified and earn BTEC qualifications equivalent to GCSE qualifications. Recently our cadets have had the opportunity to learn to play music and our Squadron band has seen considerable success.

At all times through their time with the Air Cadets, our cadets are continually meeting new people and making new friends both locally on the Squadron but further afield too at regional and national events. It’s this combination of social and personal development opportunities that makes the Air Cadets so unique.
