About Us

Untitled design (8).png

Trent Wing was formed in 1999, through merging units of Lincolnshire Wing and East Midlands Wing. The expansion saw the Wing grow to 31 units covering 5 counties in the heart of the UK, making it one of the biggest geographically and in terms of cadets and staff. The wing has gone from strength to strength, being at the forefront of development and offering the full range of cadet activities and staff development available within the RAFAC. 

The Wing Crest (left) was designed and approved. The Green and Blue symbolising the Rolling Fields and Hills and the river Trent, which runs through the Wing, with the 32 links in the chain representing all the units in the Wing.  'Unitas' was chosen as the wording, meaning 'Unity'. 

Today we have Squadrons and Detached Flights in the locations below. Check the map at the bottom of the page for address details. Please also note that there may be another Squadron near to you covered by another wing too!

The Officer Commanding Trent Wing ATC is Wing Commander Tony Wright. Tony became OC Trent Wing in 2009 having been a Wing Staff Officer in various roles as part of both Trent Wing and the former East Midlands Wing. He was previously the Officer Commanding 1260 (Newark and District) Squadron, prior to taking up his WSO appointment.
