Welcome to
CADET LIFE
in the Air Training Corps
____________________

The ATC develops personal qualities of males and females aged 13-20 and a sense of community and citizenship valued by employers, both military and civil. As an Air Cadet you will discover this is great FUN!!

A very large percentage of serving members of the Royal Air Force were Air Cadets. Although the ATC is not a recruiting organization, 47% of Officer and 51% of all Aircrew recruits into the RAF are ex-air cadets. If you are looking for a Service career, membership will help give you a head start. Research has shown that ex-cadets do better in basic training and stay in the Service longer than their colleagues without the benefit of cadet membership.

Fancy doing some of these activities shown on the right? Either click the Next link below or click here to contact us.

If it all sounds a bit too good, why not see what cadets from Canvey Island have been doing in the last few years by clicking here.
