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.

On 29th April we had a visit from the Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service to show us the kind of kit and techniques they use to combat fires in different circumstances. The visit started with a tour of the fire engine which they use and all of the equipment they use. One of the most interesting parts I found was how they pumped water and the different hoses that are used. 

When pumping water they can either use the on board pump for smaller fires with less pressure needed or, when more power is needed, they have the ability to use the engine as well. After that we were shown all of the kit used such as the jaws of life that are used for cutting and different nozzles which can be used. Lastly we were shown the air tanks and such which are used when they enter a building, the safety measures they have and techniques used.

This was an incredible visit and has given me a new appreciation for the fire service and all they do.

 

 

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! 👏
