Cadet Application Form


470 Squadron recruits on a 4 month cycle to allow the creation of three 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:

  • Start of Feb
  • Mid May
  • Start of Sept

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.

Application Procedure:

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.
