What we do

The Air Cadets are an air, cyber and space-focused uniformed youth organisation with a unique training programme and close relationships with the Royal Air Force and other partners. The skills that you will learn will stay with you for life, including teamwork, leadership, mental resilience and confidence. Finally, you meet many new friends along the way, and most importantly, have a lot of fun whilst doing it!


452 (Hornchurch) Squadron is allocated places for flying and gliding. These are distributed across other squadrons in London Wing. These are AEFs or Air Experience Flights, short flights under the supervision of a pilot, to give cadets a taste of what flying is like, even trying aerobatics. The Air Cadets have several flying scholarships a year to allocate, these are extremely sought after - but are a fantastic opportunity for any young person to experience.
