RECRUITING NOW

1334 Manningtree Air Cadets are recruiting now – ages 12 to 16 – for adventure, fun and to learn new life skills. Contact us using the form below.


Air Cadets are a great organisation to join and offer fantastic opportunities. Despite being ‘Air’ Cadets we don’t just go flying, we practice target shooting with rifles, go gliding, mountain climbing, fieldcraft training exercises, camp building, visit active military stations, learn first aid and loads more.

It doesn’t stop there…we also do stuff just for fun, such as go-kart racing and clayshooting… and there was that visit to see and climb aboard the AH-64 apache helicopter… and when we won that massive first-aid trophy… and that time we went up flying in the Chinook… in fact, there are so many opportunities available to you, there isn’t enough space here to list them all!

TRY US OUT FOR A WHILE

There will be a few tests to do, such as understanding how to fly an aircraft so that we can let you take control in the air, but we’ll help you with all that. Team-up with your friends, make new ones and enjoy amazing experiences, as well as learn some new skills. Don’t miss out on these opportunities and all the activities available to you. Try us out for a while… if you don’t like it, we’re ok with that. You’ve got nothing to loose! We are open Mondays from 7pm to 9.30pm (as well as some other times depending on activity).

BTEC’s AVAILABLE

Getting highly skilled in your favourite subject means that you could end up with a number of widely recognised BTEC qualifications that could really help you in a future career. A range of vocational qualifications are available through either ourselves or the CVQO. Thousands of Cadets pass these each year.

So expand your horizons, have an adventure, learn some life skills, take the first step and get in touch.

Tendring Show 2011

This year’s show again proved popular with the crowds and the Air Cadets Stand was as busy as ever. We were accompanied by 614 Squadron Gliding School with their Aircraft on display. Staff from the School in Essex were on hand to demonstrate the controls and help aspiring pilots into the cockpit. After the show the Cadets begun the demanding task of clearing the site for the rest of the weekend, camping overnight. This is one of our many fund raising events of the year, so many thanks to all that helped this year.

Making plans for 2011

Welcome to 2011, hope you all had a good break over Christmas.

We have been busy making plans for all our activities during 2011, including camps, wing events and courses as well as squadron activities. We have noted some on our Forthcoming events planner which you can find at the foot of our Calendar page. As I’m sure you have all experienced – best made plans can change at a moments notice so please keep visiting the Calendar page regularly for any updates throughout the year.

A note to all Cadets and parents, the notice board in the hall has all the latest event information and it is encouraged to get your name on the application list for as many as you can. There are a limited number of spaces at our wing organised events, and although we try and give priority to those who haven’t been before it is advised to get your name forward as soon as possible.

Don’t forget if any of you would like to suggest an activity you can and if any parents would like to get involved in 2011, please get in touch.
