Welcome to the 1350 (Fareham & District) Squadron Air Training Corps (ATC) website. The Air Training Corps is part of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets (RAFAC), a voluntary national youth organisation sponsored by the Royal Air Force. You can join the ATC as a cadet if you’re at least 12 (and in year 8 of school). You can’t usually join after your 17th brithday. As a cadet, you may be eligible to stay until your 20th birthday.

We offer lots of activities and training and this website explains more about what’s involved in being a cadet and what you could get out of it.

Adult volunteers must be 20 years of age or over and willing to commit to attend regular parade evenings and some weekend activities/events. All potential adult staff complete a vetting process, including an enhanced DBS check and security check, and also have to complete some manadatory training. This training includes safeguarding and first aid.

1350 Squadron normally parades two nights each week from 7:15 pm to 9:30 pm on a Monday and Thursday evening. We often run weekend activities, camps and other events, that cadets are all encouraged to take part in. If you are interested in joining as a cadet or adult volunteer then please contact us for further details.
