2410 (Didcot) Squadron is a vibrant squadron seeking adventure and challenge whether its aviation, adventure training or sports. Our motto Pressunt quia posse vicleutur which translates to 'We achieve through ability' speaks volumes, as we offer a broad and varied training programme with opportunities for young people to take part in challenging, interesting and fun activities as members of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets.

Cadets from 2410 (Didcot) Squadron had a busy day at RAF Benson today! It was Families Day, and as well as helping out, the cadets got to watch the air show, which included Chinook and Puma helicopters, and the RAF Falcons! There were plenty of other exhibits on display, including classic cars, fire engines – the cadets even got to meet the crew of a visiting USAF Osprey aircraft and take a quick tour! Well done to all cadets and volunteers for their hard work!
