The local Air Cadet unit for Redditch & Bromsgrove

Our Cadets take part in many exciting activities two nights a week and nearly every weekend! From flying and gliding to camping, rock climbing and target shooting! We are open to all young people from 12 years old (and in Year 8 at school) up to their 17th birthday, and provide the sort of opportunities that only come once in a lifetime!
