I joined cadets because I new someone involved in a squadron nearby and found out about all the different activities and how often he was given the opportunity to go away on camp.
One of the best things that I’ve done during Air Cadets is going to Scotland to take part in lots of adventure training exercises including things like White water rafting and zip-lining. I went knowing no one and came back with lots of new friends, it was a great opportunity to meet new people.
Something i would say to anyone joining Air Cadets is to go ahead and do it! Whilst in the squadron attend as many events as possible because it’s the best way to get the most out of it. Make yourself known.
