What did you do last weekend?
As an Air Cadet you get the chance to go flying and gliding, get taught how to shoot, take part in many team sports up to a National level, go on camp at RAF and Army bases throughout the UK and overseas, learn adventure training in the field, as well as going climbing, abseiling and canoeing…the list is endless! If an activity isn’t available in the ATC it won’t be worth doing! The Air Training Corps is also the largest operator of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme. The ATC’s Commodore-in-Chief is HRH Prince Philip, and he takes a keen interest in the organisation.
