In early August 2013, Air Cadets and Staff from 2467 (Nailsea) Squadron flew to the Island of Jersey, Channel Islands, for their Annual Adventure Training Camp.
During the week, cadets they took part in Coastal Traversing, Abseiling, Sea Kayaking, Body boarding and other adventurous activities designed to provide new experiences for the participants as well as build team spirit. This camp was the inspiration of the Squadron Commander, Flight Lieutenant Radford, and it has successfully been running for the past 8 years. Cadet Horton, a cadet of the Squadron, and first time visitor said, “ The week was a fantastic experience and it should be a compulsory item in the training programme”.
This year the squadron is celebrating 40 years since its move to Nailsea from Long Ashton. This is being celebrated in November when Air Commodore McAfferty RAFR is paying the Squadron a visit as head of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets.
