1279 Squadron has been in Melton Mowbray for many years allowing the young people of the Town to experience adventure with an aviation flavour.
Every weekend the cadets with 1279 (Melton Mowbray) ATC are doing something different, whether that's flying an aeroplane, marching through Holland or learning how to kayak. We've had cadets fly solo in a glider, and go on camps to places as diverse as Cyprus and Gibraltar.
The squadron is based on Asfordby Road and is open to 13 to 17 year olds. We parade twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings (19:00hrs to 21:30hrs), and accept new cadets on the first parade night of the month. Alternatively you can contact the squadron staff through this website if you have any queries.
