1334 Air Cadets


For all you wannabe Air Cadets out there. Manningtree Sqn is now recruiting for new cadets. If you are in year 8 at school or below the age of 16, please come along and join a fantastic organisation.

How to join

Are you ready to take the first step towards all the opportunities and benefits that the air cadets can offer you?

It’s important to know that we’re not a recruiting organisation for the Services (but it’s great if you decide you want to join later on). We’re not interested in anything but you and your potential, and will help you get the most from your experience as a cadet.

Worried about fitting in? Equality is a central part of the Air Cadets’ ethic. The cadet experience is open to everyone, so whatever your nationality, background or ability, whether you’re male or female, if you’re in year 8 at school and below the age of 16, you can join us.

The maximum age for entry is 16 years old, therefore you can request to join us up to your 16th birthday, although you can stay beyond 16 once you’ve joined.

Contact us now, telephone 07702-232507 or use the form below.

What’s in it for you?

Aside from flying, sports, target shooting, adventure training and great fun? You’ll soon find that being an air cadet is its own reward – you constantly see the benefits of your own efforts, building on your achievements and earning BTECs and DoE Awards. You’ll be expected to take part in as many of the activities we run as possible, but with what’s on offer you won’t need much persuading!

We have high standards to maintain as we are a ‘military’ youth organisation and you’ll naturally take pride in your uniform (we supply that) and appearance. You’ll be well mannered and self-disciplined. You’ll be joining an organisation of which you’ll be very proud.

What are you waiting for!

All of our squadrons welcome personal visits by potential cadets (ideally accompanied by a parent or guardian), during our Parade Night – Monday 19:00hrs to 21:30hrs. Some squadrons recruit throughout the year, others have specific entry dates.

Contact: Tel 07702-232507 or use the form above. Our address is: 1334 Squadron Air Cadets, Drill Hall, Mill Lane, Manningtree, Essex CO11 1DQ.
