If you're musical or you would like to learn to play an instrument you could train to become a musician in one of our Air Cadet Bands.
Many of our young musicians had never played a musical instrument before joining their Squadrons bands. Weeks of hard work and dedication is finally rewarded when they reach the required standard and are presented with their musician's badges.
The Wing holds a band competition each year during the Wing Training Day. The winning band for the 2006 season was the Band of 121 ( Nuneaton ) Squadron which went on to represent the Wing at the Regional finals for the forth year in succession. They put on a magnificent display, several new pieces of music had been added to running order. Unfortunately despite all the hard work and preparation their attempt to reach the national finals was unsuccessful, they did however manage a very healthy score, which earned them second place.
The Fanfare section from 194 (BSA) Squadron, Birmingham retained their first place title in the Fanfare element of the Regional band competition for the forth year running and CWO Mahesh Chauhan of 194 Sqn also took first place in the solo bugle section of the Regional competition.
Our bands are regularly invited to participate in many charity and ex-service organisation functions possibly the most prestigious of which is being given the honour to lead contingents during Remembrance Day parades throughout the region.
