THE Air Cadet unit 145 (Altrincham & Hale) Squadron is looking for new recruits.

IT is holding open evenings on September 21 and 25 at its headquarters on Mainwood Road, Timperley, Cheshire from 7.30pm to 9pm with a view to recruiting boys and girls between 12 and 17 years old and in year 8 or above.

Air cadets not only learn about the Royal Air Force but also to have the chance to go flying, gliding, shooting, gain BTEC qualifications, be part of the squadron’s sports team, and to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.

There will be a chance to meet existing cadets and staff on the night, to see some of the activities on offer together with presentations to learn about what we do and to ‘have a go’.

Unit organisers would also like to meet any adults who also have an interest in aviation, music or with skills that would help benefit our young people and to be able to give them the chance for some ‘hands on’ training.

If you would like to register your interest in either of these dates or for more information, the Squadron is open on Monday and Thursday evenings from 7pm to 9.30pm, 0161 283 3085, email or Twitter @AltyAirCadets
