1082 (Brimington & District) Squadron is a youth organisation for 12 (at the start of year 8) to 20 year olds, male and female, from the Brimington, Staveley, Inkersall, Bolsover, and Chesterfield areas.
We provide free flying, gliding, and many adventurous training activities. We meet twice a week on Monday and Wednesdays between 19:00 and 21:15 at 26a Chesterfield Road, Brimington, S43 1AA.
Feel free to drop in any time for a chat about what we do. We’re a community organisation and welcome curious visitors! We recruit three times a year using an Intake system. This means you’ll start at the same time as others so you’re not alone, and go through initial training together, often forming friends for life!
Once you ‘pass out’ you can take apart in all of our activities, including weekend and week long camps in the UK and abroad. We’ve had cadets travel to Ascension Island, Northern Ireland, Wales, and various RAF bases in England.
You’ll find on this site recent photos of our cadets taking part in real activities. This is what we do!
If you have any queries, please email the Squadron at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The Squadron’s logo designed by our cadets during a competition won by Cdt Kara Hawkins (Logo Design) and Cdt Cpl Danny Henman (Motto creation).
The crown and red surround are from the Air Training Corps logo. The flag in the background is the Derbyshire flag, where the Squadron is based. The aircraft is a Hawker Hunter navigating over Derbyshire, where we carry out Adventure Training. The lightning motif on the wings symbolises the Squadron’s commitment to radio and cyber communications training.
The motto – Endeavour Together Excel – encompasses the three core values the cadets themselves listed during the competition that most symbolises their approach to activities. Endeavour by training your best, no matter your abilities. Working Together as a team to achieve our aims. Through this hard work and teamwork we will Excel in all things.
