    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
