Flying and Gliding

Joining the Air Cadets opens up lots of opportunities, including the chance to fly! It’s our aim to get you airborne as often as possible, as a passenger in a light aircraft, a glider or even RAF aircraft such as our Typhoon fast-jet or a Chinook helicopter! Where else can you do that before you get your driving licence?

There are plenty of opportunities for cadets to get in the air and also fly the aircraft. Air Experience Flights could even see you take to the skies in as you take control of a Grob Tutor light aircraft.

Stand out from the crowd and you could be put forward for an overseas flight on a Hercules, VC10 or Tri-star. If you’re really lucky you could even join a pilot in one of our fast-jet aircraft or experience the unbeatable exhilaration of a Red Arrows flight!
