470 Squadron recruits on a 6 month cycle to allow the creation of two ICT (Initial Cadet Training) flights per year. We find this is the most efficient way to train new recruits and we have very high retention rates as a result.
The approximate rotation of these intakes is below:
If you are interested in joining the Squadron please complete the form and we will invite you down to the Headquarters for a visit and secure you a place on our next intake.
***COVID-19 UPDATE – Our Sept 20 recruitment intake has been postponed until we can return to F2F contact. It is unlikely we will host our usual presentation open night until 2021. We plan to run ITC02-20 as soon as we return to Sqn operations in Q4-2020. ***
The online application form is the same one which we use within the Squadron during initial cadet interviews. You must be at least 12 years old to join and in Secondary education.
If you decide to join the Squadron these details will be stored securely for the duration of your career within the RAF Air Cadets. If you decide to not join we will keep the details on file for 12 months before they are destroyed.
