One of the primary aims of the Air Training Corps is to promote and develop a spirit of good citizenship amongst our young people. With this objective in mind the squadron has formed close relationships with many local community and ex-service organisations.

As well as helping out within our local community the squadron is also involved with fund raising events for national organisations such as the Royal British Legion and the Royal Airforce Association.

In the year 2000 one of our cadets was selected to take part in the Millennium Falcon Flight which was a major charity event to celebrate the year 2000. The Air Cadet organisation raised a total of £328,000 for other charities, which was matched pound for pound by BAE Systems. To mark the event a flight of three Vigilant motor gliders set off from RAF Cottesmore on a 3000 nautical mile trip around Britain incorporating all six regions of the Air Cadet organisation. Our cadet joined the Millennium Falcon Flight at RAF Little Rissington and completed one leg of this nation-wide charity event.
