2017 | Wing Field Day

Earlier in the year 1359 Squadron became winners of the annual South & East Midlands Wing Field Day competition.

Beating 28 other squadrons from the wing  in a variety of competitions designed to bring out the best in intelligence, ingenuity and teamwork, 1359 (Beeston) squadron made it to the first position to become the overall winners of the competition. Here at the squadron we are very proud of this achievement and congratulate our cadets on a remarkable performance.

As an Air Cadet, you are presented with a range of opportunities that your friends may never have. Shooting, Flying, Adventure Training Camps and BTEC Awards. Fancy spending part of your weekend upside down at 6,000 ft? Well you can if you join us!

This website provides details on the activities that you, as an Air Cadet, could get involved in.

Each year cadets from 1359 Squadron represent the Air Cadet Organisation at various events within the community.

This comes in the form of sporting events held by other organisations, a number of parades in the Nottinghamshire area including the remembrance day parade held each year at Beeston.
