Flying and gliding

Joining the Air Cadets opens up lots of opportunities, including the chance to fly! It’s our aim to get you airborne as often as possible, as a passenger in a light aircraft, a glider or even on-board RAF aircraft such as our Typhoon fast-jet or a Chinook helicopter.

Get your head in the clouds!

"I've heard you get to do some aerobatics on your second flight! I'm looking forward to that a lot!"

"When I was a cadet, I got to go on a week-long Gliding Scholarship. It was amazing and is a memory that will last a lifetime."
