About Us

Welcome to the Royal Air Force Air Cadets. We are a UK-wide cadet force that have more than 40,000 members aged 12-20.

Our aims are to:

  • Promote and encourage a practical interest in aviation and the Royal Air Force among young people

  • Provide training which will be useful in the Services and civilian life

  • Encourage the spirit of adventure and develop qualities of leadership and good citizenship


Most importantly it is great fun!


The Air Cadet Organisation offers you a wide variety of activities including:

  • Flying and Gliding

  • Adventure training and camps

  • Competitive sport

  • Drill

  • Shooting

  • Music

  • BTEC’s

  • And so much more.


The list is endless and it is a great challenge.

We are not a recruitment agency for the Royal Air Force so there is no need to want to join up. However, if you are looking at a career in any of the Armed Forces you will gain a lot of the valuable skills and experiences to give you a massive head start. All these skills and experiences will also set you up well for a civilian life.
