Flying & 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 on-board RAF aircraft such as our Typhoon
fast-jet or a Chinook helicopter.

There are plenty of opportunities for cadets to get in the air. Air Experience
Flights will see you take to the skies in 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!
