Joining Melton Air Cadets

Thank you for your interest in joining our Squadron. Aside from flying, sports, target shooting, adventure training and great fun? You’ll soon find that being an air cadet is its own reward - you constantly see the benefits of your own efforts, building on your achievements and earning BTECs and DoE Awards. You’ll be expected to take part in as many of the activities we run as possible, but with what’s on offer you won’t need much persuading! And there’s one more important thing - it’s a lot of fun! We have high standards to maintain as we are a ’military’ youth organisation and you’ll naturally take pride in your uniform (we supply that) and appearance. You’ll be well mannered and self-disciplined. You’ll be joining an organisation of which you’ll be very proud. The Air Training Corps (ATC), better known as the ’Air Cadets’, are a UK-wide cadet force sponsored by the Royal Air Force aged between 13 and 20 years with more 900 squadrons and 40,000 members around the UK. It’s important to know that we’re not a recruiting organisation for the Services (but it’s great if you decide you want to join later on). We’re not interested in anything but you and your potential, and will help you get the most from your experience as a cadet. We expect a lot from you - it’s a serious commitment to be a cadet - but once you’ve experienced it yourself we know you wouldn’t have it any other way. I hope to see you in uniform soon!
