162 (Stockport) Squadron is a local Royal Air Force Air Cadet unit based in Greater Manchester Wing.
We are one of the largest squadrons in the area with approximately forty members. We offer a wide range of activities such as flying, gliding, target shooting, adventure training and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award to young people aged 12 – 19 from the Stockport area. We have been selected for the past two years as the Best Squadron in Greater Manchester Wing and nominated for the Best Squadron in North Region.
One of our many successes is our Squadron band. Set up 5 years ago we have trained over fifty cadets on a range of musical instruments and performed at many prestigious events. We have represented the North of England at the Air Cadets National Marching Band Competition three times and always placed as one of the top five marching bands in the Corps.
The Royal Air Force Air Cadets is one of the largest youth organisations and has units based all over the country. If you are interested in joining please visit https://www.raf.mod.uk/aircadets/ to find your nearest unit.
