607 Squadron | Join Us!

Are you up for fun, adventure, incredible experiences and making new friends? Are you looking for something to give you the edge in life? Then welcome to the Air Cadet Organisation (ACO). Better known as the 'Air Cadets', we’re a UK-wide cadet force with more than 40,000 members aged between 13 and 20 years.

We're sponsored by the Royal Air Force and can give you hands-on experience of activities and courses that will challenge and develop your skills to help you succeed in whatever you want to do.

As a cadet you'll have the opportunity to do things that others only dream about. Want real flight experience? No problem. How about heading out on adventurous training and camps, sometimes overseas? Normal for cadets. Competitive sports, drill, shooting, music, abseiling, engineering projects? Our list of activities is long, varied and open to all cadets. Yes it's a challenge, but that's what life's all about.


About us

607 Squadron started life on 1st of April 1982 as 111(Seaburn) Detached Flight, based in a hut where the current HQ is sited. On its eleventh anniversary the detached flight had grown in number and in status, becoming 607 (Wearmouth) Squadron, the number used to link the new squadron to 607 (County Durham) Squadron RAF Auxillary that fought during WWII, which was based at what is now the Nissan car plant.

1994 saw 607 collect an impressive haul of trophies and accolades, including the Knowles Trophy and the Pusey Trophy for the best squadron training and administration respectively. In 1995 607 Squadron were the regional winners of the Lees Trophy, awarded to the best Squadron in the region.

The Squadron was able to secure a grant to replace the old HQ building with the current two storey brick building, believed to be the first two storey brick building designed exclusively for use by an Air training Corps Squadron, in 1996. A commemorative stone was laid by the then CO Flt Lt Carr. The Squadron has had a local impact, particularly at the Sunderland International Air Show and the Remembrance Sunday Parade in Whitburn and the Battle Of Britain Parade in Sunderland.
