Introduction to 150 Squadron

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.

Have you got what it takes?

If so we’ll see you on the parade square!

Air Training Corps Aims

ATC LogoWe run and active and demanding program of activities in accordance with the three core aims of the ATC:

  • To promote and encourage among young people a practical interest in aviation and the Royal Air Force.
  • To provide training which will be useful in both the Services and civilian life.
  • To foster the spirit of adventure and develop qualities of leadership and good citizenship.

Visit of Flt Lt Adrian Parker RAuxAF

On 1 Dec, we were very pleased to welcome Flt Lt Parker to the Squadron.  Flt Lt Parker serves with the RAuxAF and met Cpl Skelton when they both served in Iraq.  He came to tell us something about the RAuxAF, Iraq and his role.  (Ed.)

The Fall of the Berlin Wall

The Berlin Wall.

Two things triggered this article, firstly, the 20th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the secondly the imminent visit of a veteran from the Berlin Airlift.  I was still at school when the Berlin Wall came down and the Army section of my CCF unit was on camp in Germany when it happened.  I remember quite clearly the photos of our CSM sitting on the wall with a hammer.  When they came back the Officers’ and SNCO’s mess was presented with a fragment of the wall.  In this article CI Scott gives us some of the back ground.

Visit to Bicester Gliding Club

Flying through the hills.

The Air Cadet Organisation offers cadets opportunities to fly and glide.  However, for cadets in Thames Valley Wing, the opportunities to glide are delivered by 612 VGS who fly motor-gliders.  For many gliding enthusiasts, a touring motor-glider is a poor substitute for the small light and entirely silent pure gliders such as the viking.  The take-off run of a vigilant is smooth and similar to the take-off run of a tutor.  A winch launch is very different.  When Plt Off Christlieb met a member of Bicester Gliding Club during the Blenheim Triathlon he grabbed the chance and two months later the squadron borrowed a minibus and set-off for Bicester Airfield.
