Welcome to 127 (City of Wakefield) Squadron ATC.


We are part of the Air Cadet Organisation which over 45,000 cadets and 10,000 adult volunteers are part of. 

At Wakefield Air Cadets, the squadron gives the cadets many life changing opportunities that include the Duke of Edinburgh Award, Flight Simulator Training, Communications as well as Aircraft Recognition and Shooting. 


The cadets will learn many valuable skills like Effective Communication, Self-Discipline and Leadership/Team Building skills that are valued in civilian life as well as military. Furthermore, all cadets and volunteers have the chance to visit RAF Bases across the UK and Overseas on weekend and weeklong camps with other cadets from around Britain.


Many cadets gain a practical and theoretical interest in the Royal Air Force, Aviation and Adventure which can lead and give fantastic opportunities. After all, the Air Cadet motto is 'Venture Adventure'.
