1051 (Dartford) Air Squadron are a youth organisation for those aged from 12 to 20 years old.  They were established back in February 1941 and more details of their history can be seen at 1051dartfordsqn.talktalk.net.  Current activities undertaken by the squadron include flying and gliding, adventure training, shooting, drill and parades and sports.

They recruit throughout the year, so if you think that you could become an Air Cadet, why not attend one of their parade nights to see what they do?  They also welcome adult volunteers.  If you are up for a challenge, or are looking to meet new people then why not join find out more?

Last weekend, they held a fun day at their base in Lower Heath Lane, Dartford to  give residents a taste of cadet life and demonstrating the highlights of being a cadet.  Coverage of this event from newsshopper.co.uk.
