Joining As A Committee Member

The Civilian Committee

The Air Training Corps is a voluntary youth organisation for the air minded under the sponsorship of the Ministry of Defence (MOD), but its squadrons are based in their local communities and are part of their own cities and towns.  Some of the activities are sponsored and financed by the MOD but others are not, and it is in connection with the latter that squadrons need the help of their civilian committees.


Civilian Councils And Committees

The civilian structure of the ATC is based on Councils and Committees in support of each Squadron and Flight.  These are:

  • The Air Cadet Council, under the Presidency of the Under Secretary of State for the Armed Forces, composed of representatives from the MOD, the Commandant Air Cadets and the Chairmen or representatives of Regional Councils
  • The Regional Council composed of the chairmen or their representatives of all Wings in the Region
  • The Wing Committee composed of the chairmen or their representatives of all Squadrons in the Wing
  • The Squadron Committee



The purpose of these Councils and Committees is to support cadet activities by:

  • Giving direct help and advice to formations in performance of their tasks
  • Provide a means of ensuring that Squadrons' views are properly represented at Air Cadet Council, Regional and Wing levels
  • Fostering association between ATC formations and their associated communities
  • Raising, controlling and accounting for non-public funds in support of Squadron training programs and approved activities

If you are interested in joining the civilian committee and helping us out, please contact the Officer Commanding, using the form below, who will advise you of the date of the next meeting.
