Penrith Air Cadets welcomes young people from 12 (and in Year 8) to 20 years old. We offer a wide variety of activities including flying, shooting, adventure and expedition training, projects, overseas camps and the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.

We meet on Mondays and Fridays from 19:00 to 21:15 at the Squadron headquarters in central Penrith.

The RAF Air Cadets is sponsored by the Royal Air Force and can give you hands-on experience of activities and courses that are great fun, and develop your skills and challenge you as a cadet.

The RAF Air Cadets is the largest aviation-focused uniformed youth organisation in the UK, comprising over 34,000 community-based cadets and over 9,000 cadets in the Combined Cadet Force (CCF), supported by over 10,000 adult volunteers.

The mission of the Air Cadet Organisation is ‘To be a modern, dynamic, sustainable air-minded youth organisation of choice that offers fun and challenging opportunities to young people and adult volunteers alike and develops citizens with valuable skills for the future.’
