Who We Are

785 Sqn Air Cadets is based in the historic riverside town of Tewkesbury and is part of Bristol and Gloucestershire Wing. We are a growing squadron and always happy to welcome new cadets. The RAF Air Cadets is a cadet organisation based in the United Kingdom. It is a voluntary youth group which is part of the Air Cadet Organization and the Royal Air Force (RAF).

Ready for a challenge???

As a cadet you'll have the opportunity to do things that others only dream about. Want real flight experience? No problem. How about heading out on adventurous training and camps, sometimes overseas? Normal for cadets. Competitive sports, drill, shooting, music, abseiling, engineering projects? Our list of activities is long, varied and open to all cadets. Yes it's a challenge, but that's what life's all about.
