This is the home of 2515 Ringwood and Fordingbridge Squadron Air Cadets (ATC). This website contains information about who we are and what we do as well as providing an extremely useful resource to cadets at our Squadron. Please feel free to look around the site where you will be able to get a feel of what we are like as a Squadron and what we get up to. There is also information about joining air cadets (ATC) for prospective cadets and contact details. If you have any queries please contact us at.
We parade on Tuesday and Friday nights between 1915-2145 hrs.
We welcome personal visits by potential cadets (ideally accompanied by a parent or guardian), during one of our Parade Nights (Tuesdays & Fridays). Just come along and see if you like it - you don't have to join, but at least check out what you might be missing. Just visit the Contact Us page and drop us an email or give us a call so we can arrange a visit for you to come down and experiance what being an Air Cadet is all about. What did you do last weekend?
A note from OC 2515 - Flt Lt Rowell RAFVR(T)
"You have found the homepage for one of the most progressive Air Cadet units in the country, situated on the Hampshire/Dorset border nestling on the edge of the New Forest. For those of you who are interested in the ATC, you would be joining one of the country's premier youth organizations numbering 40,000 male and female cadets plus 7,000 uniformed and civilian staff who are based in approximately 1,000 Squadrons and Detached Flights throughout the United Kingdom and abroad.
Formed during World War II, the ATC has continued to produce generations of young men and women who have dared to be different for over 66 years. Achieving awards, qualifications and above all self-confidence, members of the ATC truly deserve the title of "The Next Generation". From the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme to BTEC and beyond, young people aged 13 to 20 literally 'reach for the stars' through such activities as gliding, powered flying and educational visits all over the UK and abroad.
At 2515 our motto is simple: "pervenio pro astrum" or quite simply: "Reach for the Stars".
Long may it continue. We look forward to seeing you soon."
Flt Lt Tony Rowell RAFVR(T)
