If you’ve made it to this page then you’re probably looking for a challenge; something to bring out what you’re really capable of.

Well, the RAF Air Cadets is where you get to prove it – and you may even surprise yourself with what you can achieve.

If you are aged between 12 (and in school year 8) and 17-years-old, then 346 (Tynemouth) Squadron is open to you!

We’re also always interested to hear from enthusiastic and dedicated people over the age of 20 who wish to join our volunteer staff team. No previous military service is required as the RAF Air Cadets will organise training alongside a multitude of amazing opportunities. It’s not just the cadets who get to have all the fun!

If you think you’re up for the challenge, or want to find out more, then please do pop in to see us on either a Tuesday or Friday between 7pm-9pm at 346 (Tynemouth) Squadron, Military Road, North Shields, NE30 2AB, and ask to speak to one of our staff team.

We’re happy to answer any questions.

Please note: we ask that potential new cadets bring a parent or guardian with them on their initial visit.
