What we did last year

  1. -Flying and Gilding (You could become a gilder pilot)

  2. -Shooting - This is with real ammunition, but you will have to do training and re-qualification training every six months - but the achievement of completing this is well worth the effort.

  3. -Ten Tors, Duke of Edinburgh's Award, BTEC in Public Services, Music and Aviation Studies. These activities require a lot of hard work and determination to complete and will be Cadet lead with staff support.

  4. -Night exercises, Initiative exercises, Leadership training, Sports, Radio, Parades and Community events.

  5. -First Aid, Summer camps, Camps abroad, International Air Cadet Exchange, work experience with the RAF.

  6. -And more - when you join it is down to you to apply for these activities.

  7. -IMPORTANT - Weekday evenings are the time for you to put your name forward to do these activities. Most activities happen at weekends and that is where the real fun happens.

Joining is easy:

  1. -Go to your local Air Cadet Squadron with a parent or guardian, and ask a member of staff about joining. They will be happy to help and will give you an application form to fill out. Or click here for the application form and other documents.

  2. -There is a monthly fee of £5 only payable by Standing Order and £25 uniform fee which will include a Polo Shirt.

  3. -If you wish to stay then you can request to become “enrolled”.

  4. -We do lots of weekend activities - so parents be warned, you could become a taxi service.

  5. -Once you become enrolled you will be issued with a uniform, once the uniform fee has been paid. Please note parents are not expected to iron their Cadet’s uniform.
