To be eligible to join the 452 (Hornchurch) squadron, you must be at least 12 (in year 8) and up to 17 years old. Once you are a member, once you are 18, you can undertake 'staff cadet' courses, and with a valid DBS - you can stay with us until your 20th birthday.


We hold two intakes a year, one in March and one in September. These are like school open days, where you and your parents are invited down and shown around by various cadets and staff who explain what we do.


If you are interested, we can add you to our recruit course, where you will learn all of the basics in a group. Once passed, you will be officially enrolled and be allowed to wear your uniform, and attend activities outside of the squadron.

We are located at:

30 Tyrells Close


Greater London

RM14 2QA
