A Brief History Lesson...
Aims of the Air Training Corps
Our aims are to:
Promote and encourage a practical interest in aviation and the Royal Air Force among young people
Provide training which will be useful in the Services and civilian life
Encourage the spirit of adventure and develop qualities of leadership and good citizenship
You don't have to want to join the RAF to be an air cadet!
In 1859 several schools around the country began forming armed, uniformed units of adults and older boys with the purpose of protecting Britain in the event of an attack from overseas.
In 1938 the Air Defence Cadet Corps (ADCC) was founded. Demand for places was high and squadrons were set up in as many towns around the UK as possible. Local people ran them and each squadron aimed to prepare cadets for joining the RAF.
However, near the end of 1940, the government realised the ADCC was basically an RAF recruitment organisation so the name was changed to the Air Training Corps (ATC) and has remained, to this day, a youth organisation which does recruit people into the RAF but teaches about it.
Plane modeling is one of the many competitions cadets can take part in.
Flying and Gliding
There are many opportunities to take to the skies in a powered aircraft or glider!
