Join Us

So you’ve landed on our website, which means you’re either on the wrong website, or you want to be an Air Cadet!

Here at 611 you can fly, shoot, camp and much more. You’ll make loads of new friends in no time at all, and most of all, you’ll learn something new.

It’s best you know that we’re no kind of recruiting organisation for the Armed Forces, however it will teach you invaluable skills if you do decide to join in the future. Whatever you want to achieve, we’ll help you get there, the Air Cadet Organisation will always provide you with confidence.

If you’re not sure whether it’s right for you, it’s best to try it and find out. Many recruits that join are persuaded by their friends and/or family, and it’s only after a few parade nights that you’ll start to realise what we can offer you!

So how old do you have to be to join? Whether you’re male or female, as long as you’re between 13, or aged 12 and  in year 8 or equivalent at school, and 17 years old you can join us.
The maximum age to be able to join us is 17 years old, therefore you can request to join us anytime between your 12th and 17th birthday. If you are above that age group and still want to join the Air Training Corps, you may want to look at becoming a Civilian Instructor or a uniformed memebr of staff!
