do you know any air cadets from your country if so get them on this forum
I was an air cadet (about 35 years ago), does that count?
What kind of air cadets ? 12-18 year olds or officers in training ?
My sister is an air cadet . Shes 12.
the 12 to 18 year olds
and yes 35 years ago does count
Okey dokey. So why do you want us?
just to talk about what it was like and stuff
My cousins were both air cadets, and loved it.
I do have an air cadet friend (13 year old) but he has no internet access.
My sister is in Air cadets , she went to a camp in Greenwood in which only 1-17(estimated) from her company got to go , shes a corporal , shes got stars and stuff for shooting , shes goin for the Duke of Edinburgh award , shes plays saxaphone in the band. That's about it.
This is also her first year , shes allready been promoted and shes likely up for another promotion soon.
There were 100 in her company , 6 got to go to the camp.
thats fast promotion
i was an air-cadet and it was SO boring. all we did was drill and clean the place we met.
iv heard its good in other places but i woudnt recomend going to people thinking about joing.
My sister does drill , once a week does band , she does sports sometimes , and shes goes camping every few weeks , and she also does shooting , allthough there used to be a lot more cadets a lot of them have quit because the new leader is an army man , and cadets see him as a drill instructor, who is kind of a perfectionist when it comes to dress and stuff.
wow thats a lot, maybe its just the raf who suck
i know i few ex-army and marine cadets.
I only joined because I was doing aircraft recognition for my DofE award and Air Cadets were the only people qualified to judge my "expertise".
They put me on their team and got through to the national finals for the first time in that squadron's history. 119 Sqn IIRC.
well...I am one NOW...from singapore...
i would recommend joining anyone who knows anyone wanting to join should
i was gonna join a cadets force but the decided to join a rifle club instead and i do not regret makeing that descision
You get to use guns a lot more often than cadets do , but cadets get a wack of free gear , a spiffy uniform, they go camping and can attend camps , and also earn awards, but to a majority of a teenage boys it's the gun club.
yeh but i can go when ever i want get a gun out and shoot. cadets cant do that they have certain times to shoot
