The activities we offer are challenging, exciting, adventurous and fun. The challenge
is ensuring you get the opportunity to take part in all the Air Cadets has to offer.
When you join 451 you’ll be introduced to the activities and as you make friends
and start basic training more opportunities will present to you.
Uniform is supplied to you after a trial period in the organisation, we recommend
you purchase certain items for comfort, however the vast majority of uniform you
are loaned from the Squadron stores. Your monthly subscription supplements the cost
of the uniform loaned to you and whilst you have that uniform, payment of your subscription
Cadets pay a subscription of £30 for a quarter or £55 for six months or £100 for
the year, and this covers the cadets for taking part in activities in the Air Cadets
and the cost of attending the two Squadron nights a week. Subs is payable for new
cadets from when they hit the first payment quarter, and payable for all in advance,
in the first fortnight of that quarter i.e. the first 2 weeks of Mar, Jun, Sept,
Dec. Day trips, weekend camps, annual camps all cost extra to the monthly subscriptions,
however for what you get at these events, the prices are very competitive. The cost
of each activity will be advertised at the Squadron along with other instructions
as details emerge.
We also fund our own Squadron minibuses, to allow cadets to travel to all the events,
they require money for fuel, which we ask the cadets to assist with on each activity,
however maintenance requires more fundraising from the civilian committee with the
cadets help. Find more information about the civilian committee here.
Please explore the website to find out about each activity and hear what cadets have
to say about the activities.
