2391 Squadron is involved in a wide variety of activities from in house training courses to assisting other organisation's with their fund raising.

Flying and gliding are a major part of the Air Cadets key activities and cadets from the Squadron are frequently given the opportunity to take the controls of both powered and unpowered aircraft.
(see Flying)

Exercises in "greens" also play a big part in cadet activities. These can range from local training to exercises on Salisbury Plain and Bovingdon Training Area in Dorset.

Cadets are also trained in the correct use of radios and are able to refine their skills during events such as the Royal Internationa Air Tattoo held each year at RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire. For many years the Squadron provided the Cadet Radio Safety Network during RIAT where there are as many as 500 cadets working at the show with upwards of 50 radios in use.(see Radio)

The Squadron also has two go-karts that the cadets are able to drive on a regular basis. (see Karting)

In recent years shooting, both smallbore and fullbore, has played a major part in Squaron activities. Cadets from the Squadron have represented both Wing and Corps in National cadet shooting competitions with cadets from the Squadron also joining the Great Britain Junior Smallbore Rifle Squad. Cadets from 2391 have also represented both UK Cadets and Great Britain in the Under 19 and Under 25 fullbore target rifle teams as well as representing Great Britain as members of the Atheling team in Canada. A cadet from the Squadron was also invited to shoot with the RAFTR Club in South Africa, the only cadet to ever do so.(see Shooting)

Overseas Expeditions have now become a "trade mark" of the Squadron with the last one being to Vietnam in October 2014. (see Expeditions)
