About Essex Wing
We are one of 6 Wings in the London & South East Region (LASER) and have our headquarters at Carver Barracks (formerly RAF Debden); near Saffron Walden.
We currently have around 1000 cadets and 250 staff spread across 28 units.
We live by the ATC motto of "Venture Adventure" and uphold the three aims of the Air Training Corps:
- To promote and encourage among young people a practical interest in aviation and the Royal Air Force.
- To provide training which will be useful in the Services and civilian life.
- To foster the spirit of adventure and develop qualities of leadership and good citizenship.
