Since I have joined cadets, I’ve learned to be a good team leader and feel I have gained many achievements, both through qualifications and skills.

CDT Evans

I really enjoy cadets and find it brilliant, you can do lots of things in cadets and most of them you cannot do anywhere else. I would encourage anyone to join.

CDT Wolny

I Find cadets interesting and fun at the same time, the squadron normally has activities going on such as DofE, flying and shooting. They have also improved my confidence and social skills.

CPL Allen

Cadets to me are an opportunity for making great friends and having the choices to do things I never dreamt I would do. You can get many things out of cadets for example i have entered public speaking competitions witch has lead on to explaining lectures to groups of 100 approx.
