Welcome to 2491 (Lyneham) Squadron ATC

We are a Royal Air Force Air Cadet Unit based in the Community Centre at MOD Lyneham. Our Squadron is formed of Cadets from around Lyneham, Royal Wootton Bassett and oher nearby surrounding villages.

Our Squadron consists of young people ranging from 12-19 years of age. There are normally two recruitment intakes a year and accept new Cadets from the age of 12 and in Year 8, up to the age of 17.

We are supported by a dedicated team of volunteers and regularly welcome new staff. If you have an interest in volunteering and are over the age of 20, please come along, have a chat and see what we are all about!

Our next recruitment intake should be around September time ready for the new school year. If you / your child is interest in joining, please let us know as we already have a waiting list ready for our next recruitment date. We can contact you nearer the time with details of our Open Evening and what to do next. If you are interested or would like more information, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The Squadron works together to achieve our Corps motto, 'Venture Adventure', which encourages Cadets to take up every challenge, training opportunity and experience available to them.
