Dowty Air Training Corps - 2322 Squadron

The Squadron was founded by Sir George Dowty, Chairman and founder of the Dowty Group of Companies in 1952 for the benefit of young apprentices employed by the company.

The Squadron spent the first six years as a Detached Flight of 125 (Cheltenham) Squadron until in 1958 it was granted full Squadron status and by this time it was enrolling cadets from outside the company.
