Joining us as a Cadet
Everyone is welcome to our inclusive and diverse organisation, whatever your ability, culture, nationality, or gender; if you are in year 8 or above and between 12 - 17 years old, come and join.
Aside from flying, sports, target shooting, adventure training and great fun, you will soon discover that being a Royal Air Force Air Cadet is its own reward - you will constantly see the benefits of your own efforts, building on your achievements, earning BTEC, DofE Awards and much more. You'll be expected to take part in as many of the activities we provide as possible, but with what's on offer you will not need much persuading!
As 'military' youth organisation we set high standards for you to maintain so you will naturally take pride in your uniform (we supply that) and appearance. As a well-mannered and self-disciplined you will be joining an organisation of which you will be proud to be a part of.
The enrolment ceremony is a great opportunity to invite your family down for the night to see what you’ve done in such a short amount of time!
