150 (City of Oxford) SquadronWelcome to the web site of 150 (City of Oxford) Squadron Air Training Corps (ATC), the area’s largest and best equipped Cadet Unit. We are a large and friendly squadron run by a dedicated staff team.  Unlike some other youth organisations we have high standards and expect a lot from our cadets… we give a lot in return though… For more information take a look at our prospectus, fill in the joining form or pay us a visit.

After 20 years of dedicated service, Flt Lt Levette stands down as Officer Commanding and hands over the reigns to Pilot Officer Hamish Forbes-Forsyth.

After completing his high school education, he completed his military service in the South African MedicalServices section of the SADF.

Beaudesert Greens Camp 2009

2009 OP CANNOCK Recce.  It snowed a lot more than last year.

Last year we had a really good weekend at Beaudesert Campsite, but it was a little cold.  This year we delayed the camp until the end of February and were rewarded with much milder weather.  We were disappointed that our colleagues from Abingdon, Kidlington and Cowley were unable to come, but we had five replies from Banbury Squadron.  The format was very similar to last year, except this time we had two senior NCO Instructor Cadets with us.  We put them to work running the weekend and keeping the team commanders briefed.

Sqn Ldr Garrett and the Berlin Airlift

CI Scott told us about the events that divided Berlin and Germany for nearly fifty years following the Second World War (Link).  We were lucky enough to be able to find someone who actually flew during the Airlift which supplied Germany during 1948-1949.  Sqn Ldr Garrett was a Dakota pilot and he came to tell us of his first hand experiences.
