381 (Reading) Squadron was formed in February 1941 and have been continuing ever since. In 1963 the squadron moved to Brock Barracks; in the late 1970’s the squadron moved into Block 5 of the barracks, and despite minor moves within the block, we are still there today.
The ATC is community-based and open to anyone aged between 13, or 12 if you are in year 8, and 20 years old. We are organised into more than 900 squadrons around the country. If you’re a fan of aviation, action and adventure, love sports and getting to know people then you’re in the right place. Every year nearly 56,000 air cadets and volunteer staff take part in exciting events all over the country.
The ATC motto is ‘Venture – Adventure’ and our cadets know that it’s more than just words – it’s an attitude that helps you stand out from the crowd.
