2267 (Brize Norton) Squadron

2267 (Brize Norton) Squadron parade twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday evening 19:00-21:30 hours. In addition we regularly met at weekends for activities such as flying, sport or camps.

The squadron is unusual, in that we are based on a very busy RAF station. This has enormous advantages to us; a large proportion of our staff are serving RAF personnel, we have access to facilities on station, and we have active aircraft close at hand!

We are a disciplined organisation, but that doesn't stop activities being fun and we even learn some useful skills!
