About The ATC

The Air Training Corps is a national organisation for young people aged 12 to 20. Sometimes referred to as the 'Air Cadets' or the Air Cadet Organisation (ACO), the ATC promotes the following aims:

  • To encourage a practical interest in aviation and the RAF
  • To provide training that will be useful within the ATC and in civilian life
  • To foster a spirit of adventure while developing qualities of leadership and citizenship

 The ATC was formed on the 5th February 1941 and now has just under 1,000 squadrons, which are divided into 6 Regions, each containing 6 different Wings; 633 (West Swindon) Squadron is part of the Dorset & Wiltshire Wing in the South West Region.
