2030 (Birmingham Airport) Squadron

2030 (Birmingham Airport) Squadron is one of the many Air Training Corps/RAF Air Cadet Squadrons and has its own identity and history. It is run purely by volunteers who give up their time to deliver the aims of the ATC. Our parade times are twice weekly on:

Monday and Wednesday evenings between 7pm and 9:30pm

The Squadron delivers the ATC aims in its own way depending on the Squadrons’ interests and the qualifications of the staff.

The Squadron, along with around 20 others are a part of Warwickshire and Birmingham wing. For more on how we fit into the larger structure of the Air Cadets see our hierarchy page.
