The Air Training Corps is a voluntary youth organisation for the air minded under the sponsorship of the Ministry of Defence (MOD), but its squadrons are based in their local Communities and are part of their own cities and towns. Some of the activities are sponsored and financed by MOD but others are not, and it is in connection with the latter that squadrons need the help of their civilian committees.
The civilian structure of the ATC is based on Councils and Committees in support of each Squadron and Flight. These are:
2158 (Sevenoaks) Squadron has an active civilian commitee, but are always looking for new members to join and assist in developing the squadron further. Current members meet monthly with the Officer Commanding, and are responsible for the administration of funds, applying and searching for grants for equipment, assisting with fundraising and recruitment events plus other tasks required by the Officer Commanding.
If you are interested in joining the civilian committee and helping us out, please contact the Officer Commanding, Flt Lt Russell Dowling, who will advise you of the date of the next meeting.To find out more about our civilian commitee members, click on their name below to read a little bit more about them:
