Are you up for fun, adventure, incredible experiences and making new friends? Are you looking for something to give you the edge in life? Then welcome to the Air Cadet Organisation (ACO). Better known as the 'Air Cadets', we're a UK-wide cadet force with more than 40,000 members aged between 12 (school year 8) and 20 years.

247 Squadron is one of many squadrons that make up Greater Manchester Wing, part of the national youth organisation, the Air Training Corps. 247 Squadron is a large, vibrant squadron, looking to recruit new cadets and staff from the local area. Our Commanding Officer, Flight Lieutenant Ian Wilson, together with his staff team are waiting to welcome new recruits to the squadron.

If you want to join, check out the Join Us page and send us a message.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
