The RAF cadets will learn about principles of flight and airmanship, which they will be able to put to the test when they experience flying. The RAF provide instructors to take the cadets flying in 2 seat fully aerobatic aircraft. As the cadet improves their skills there is the opportunity to apply for a flying scholarship, where the RAF will train the cadet to a standard where they will fly solo and gain their ‘wings’ for their uniform. There are also gliding opportunities too.
We also offer qualifications through the cadet vocational qualification organisation (CVQO) where the cadets gain Institute of Leadership and Management qualifications to show evidence of their leadership journey. Cadets are expected to deliver training and lessons under the guidance of the contingent staff.
