Welcome to the website for 2124 (Bristol Airport) Squadron Air Training Corps. Here you will find information about us and what we do, along with information on any current public events we may be holding. We hope you enjoy the website.

2124 (Bristol Airport) Squadron was formed on the 22 Nov 1943 on the edge of Whitchurch Aifield when the airfield was Bristol Airport. Our cadets were used in several roles during the war years helping maintain the aircraft, acting as runway controllers by firing signal flares and we even flew into Europe to act as aircrew on aircraft that were being flown to resupply front line squadrons.

Not much is known about our history after that time and we would welcome any information that may be available from members of the public. Our current Squadron HQ is in Headley Park, Bishopsworth. We parade on Mondays & Thursdays from 1900hrs until 2130hrs. Our dedicated volunteer staff organise a number of different evening and weekend activities for our cadets to take part in.

We guarantee that you won’t find the incredible combination of adventure, opportunity and fun that the Air Cadets offers anywhere else, and with nearly 1,000 units nationwide we’re probably closer than you think. Cadets and adult volunteers all gain the same second-to-none experience where you can make lasting friendships and build upon your confidence, skills and achievements. This section will give you all the facts about getting started in an exciting new direction.

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. There is more information here


If you’re aged over 20 you can volunteer to assist as a Cadet Forces Adult Volunteer. That’s it. No need for military experience or any form of previous training – we’ll take care of that. We’re just looking for suitable, enthusiastic individuals to help our cadets get the most from their time with us. There is more information here

The benefits of being a part of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets are the same for volunteers as for the cadets – the opportunity to do lots of exciting activities and develop personal skills and talents. As a volunteer this is free to you!


We’re committed to keeping parents aware of what we do and the lengths we go to ensure that all our activities are safe, well organised and that our members gain a structured and invaluable experience. There is more information for their parents here
