633 (West Swindon) Squadron ATC

Welcome to 633 (West Swindon) Squadron, part of the UK's Air Training Corps. We are a unit of on average 45 Air Cadets - boys and girls ranging in age from 12 to 20 years old, supported by a dedicated team of volunteer staff sharing a passion for new challenges, aviation and adventurous activities.

We parade on Monday and Friday evenings from 7:00 to 9:30pm at Tregoze Primary School, West Swindon. 

See further down this page for articles and social media posts showing what we have been up to lately...

If you are interested in joining our squadron, please feel free to drop in on a parade night, or email the OC for more information - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Air rifle shooting was one of the best activities that I have experienced in the Air Cadets. It took about 1 hour to get to the shooting range, where we had 2 hours of training on how to use the weapons, including basic commands, the safety procedures we would need to know to operate them safely and the different parts of the weapons. Once we had done the training, we had to do a test that certified that we could safely operate the rifles.

The WHT lasts for six months, and also allows me to go on to use more advanced weapons within the ATC, such as the L98. We were allowed on the firing range once we had passed the test, and had to pass a series of different shooting disciplines in order to gain a badge to sow on our brassard. I really enjoyed going, and getting a badge was a bonus. I would thoroughly recommend this to other cadets, and would love to do this again and pursue shooting with more advanced weapons throughout my time in the Air Cadets.

On Saturday we assisted with the annual Scouts’ Fireworks Spectacular in Lydiard Park. The weather wasn’t great but we persevered and the display went ahead! A few hours work followed by a warming bonfire, great firework display, a burger and a hot drink - not a bad way to spend ...
Well done to Sgt Hopgood and Cpl Fordom who have recently achieved their Bronze Cyber award! Hopefully the first of many others on the squadron! 👏
