London & South East Region Air Cadets
RAF Air Cadets Logo

London & South East Region Air Cadets consists of the six Wings (covering Greater London and the counties of Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Middlesex and Essex) made up of some 164 Squadrons.

Currently we have near 6500 cadets in this Region from the age of 12 and up to 20th birthday, and support from 1500 adult volunteers, some in uniform and some as civilian helpers.

The Royal Air Force Air Cadet Organisation, totalling near 41,000 cadets, is one of the premier and widely visible national youth formations. It provides amazing life opportunities and recognisable training qualifications to all cadets and staff. #venture:adventure.

The aims of the Air Cadets are to:

  • Promote and encourage an interest in aviation and the RAF.
  • Provide training that would be useful in both Service as well as civilian life.
  • Foster a spirit of adventure and develop qualities of leadership and good citizenship.

Our website is designed to:

  • Provide more information about the Air Cadet Organisation for both cadets and adult volunteers.
  • Give you an idea of the opportunities available.
  • Promote communication with LASER and cadets/adult volunteers who are considering joining the organisation.
