Welcome to the Air Cadet Central home of 472 (Hoylake) Squadron, based on the peninsula of the Wirral in the north west of England.

We’re a vibrant section with lots of staff and cadets; we’ve got activities around the community going on most weekends; and there’s always room for YOU to get involved!

Whether it’s a career in the military that you’re after, or just something awesome to fill up your free time and meet new people, 472 is the place for you!

Have you ever tried flying a light aircraft, glider, or helicopter? Being a part of the ATC gives you that opportunity, as well as countless more. Shooting, climbing, drill, kayaking, swimming, first aid, hiking, camping, and visiting active RAF stations around the UK and the world are just a fraction of what we have to offer you.

Have a look through the website to get a taster, and we’ll be seeing you on a Tuesday or Thursday night soon!
