Join Us

New cadets must be a minimum of 12 years old (but in Year 8 at school) and a maximum of 17, and you will be issued with uniform after a probationary period. The cost to be a cadet at 2397 squadron is £10.00 per calendar month, which is normally collected by standing order.

If you’re worried about fitting in then don’t be! Equality is a central part of the Air Cadets’ ethic. The cadet experience is open to everyone, so whatever your nationality, background or ability, whether you’re male or female, if you’re between 13 and 17 years old you can join us.

There is something for everyone at Devizes, from flying to sports, target shooting to adventure training. There are also opportunities to complete BTEC’s, Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, First Aid courses, and various camps including the Royal International Air Tattoo and overseas trips to participate in Nordic Skiing.

To join our unit get in touch using the methods listed in our contact us page, or come visit us on a Parade night. Parade nights are Tuesday and Thursday between 19:00 and 21:30 at The Cadet Centre, Franklyn Road, Le Marchant Barracks, Devizes. SN10 2FE – here’s a map.
