We are a Uniformed Youth Organisation based in Barnstaple for young people aged 12-19.

Our training covers a broad range of topics – both aviation and non-aviation themed.

Cadets can join between the ages of 12 (once in year 8) and 16.

1146 Squadron is based in Barnstaple, North Devon but our North Devon “Sector” includes units in Bideford, Chivenor, Hatland and Tiverton. Cadets and adult volunteers all gain the same experience where you can make lasting friendships and build upon your confidence, skills and achievements. Cadets must be in year 8 at school (or equivalent if homeschooled) and 12 yrs or older to join. A person can not join after their 18th birthday.
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, Air Cadets is where you get to prove it – you may even surprise yourself with what you can achieve. If you are male or female, between 13 and 18 then you are eligible to join.
