Greeting From Wing Commander Dave Cox FCA RAF VR(T)

As Officer Commanding, Bristol & Gloucestershire Wing, Air Training Corps I welcome you to our website. If this is your first visit (and you are not already involved in the Air Cadet Organisation) I hope you will find something to inspire you to join us either as a Freespin cadet or as a member of staff. Please do not hesitate to contact our Wing Headquarters if you need any further information.

The Wing has approximately 1,100 cadets (aged 13 to 20) attending 28 units (Squadrons and Detached Flights) located throughout Gloucestershire, Bristol and North Somerset . We also have a Detached Flight at Colerne, Wiltshire. All units are staffed by volunteer adults who freely give their time to provide all the activities highlighted in this website and in those linked to it.

I am proud to command a Wing with so many committed and dedicated adult staff who are the backbone to its success. Our cadets inspire all of us with their enthusiasm, sense of purpose and ambition. With such positive energy from staff and cadets it is a pleasure and an honour to hold the position of Wing Commander.

If you are not already a member of the Air Cadet Organisation, I recommend it to you. I am sure you will not be disappointed.

Wing Commander Dave Cox FCA RAFVR(T)
Officer Commanding
