Joining the Air Cadets will open up lots of opportunities including the chance to fly.
It’s 2358 (Ferndown) Squadron’s aim to get cadets airborne as often as possible as a passenger in a light aircraft, a glider or even on board RAF aircraft such as the Typhoon fast jet or a Chinook helicopter.
To find out more, Ferndown Air Training Corps is holding an open evening on 23 September at the squadron building.
Cadets can take on the challenge of Duke of Edinburgh Award as part of their adventurous training working their way up through the levels all the way to gold. This, coupled with adventurous training, is an essential part of the Air Cadet’s syllabus and the place where team effort really matters. The cadet will build new friendships and learn to rely on the other people to get the job done.
There’s also leadership training a skill that will build confidence and ability to deal with different kinds of people leading to the Junior Leaders course.
There is also the opportunity to try out military skills and drills.
Aside from all the experiences and new skills gained as an air cadet there is opportunity to gain qualifications including BTECs, City & Guilds and First Aid.
Those wishing to join the Air Cadets must be aged between 12-17.
The Squadron meets on Mondays and Fridays from 7.15pm-9.30pm in the building located at Cherry Grove, Ferndown. Near Ferndown Upper School.
For more details email: Adj.firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01202 891644 on a parade night or leave a message and someone will get back to you. Alternatively, drop into the open evening at the squadron building between the upper school and the sports centre on 23 September.
