THE AIR CADETS

Are you up for fun, adventure, incredible experiences and making new friends? Are you looking for something to give you the edge in life? Then welcome to the RAF Air Cadets. Better known as the ‘Air Cadets’, we’re a UK-wide cadet force with more than 40,000 members aged between 12 and 20 years.

We’re sponsored by the Royal Air Force and can give you hands-on experience of activities and courses that will challenge and develop your skills to help you succeed in whatever you want to do.

You can join as a cadet as soon as you are 12 and in year 8 at school, and up until your 17th Birthday. Cadets can remain part of the organisation until 18, or 20 if they qualify as a Staff Cadet.
