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 Air Cadet Organisation (ACO). Better known as the ‘Air Cadets’. There are more than 40,000 members aged between 13 and 20 years.
We provide opportunities for hands-on experience of activities and courses that will challenge and develop your personal skills to help you succeed in whatever you want to do.
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;
...and there’s one more important thing – it’s a lot of fun!
Ready for a challenge?
As a cadet you’ll have the opportunity to do things that others may only dream about. Real flying experience, adventurous training and camps, competitive sports, drill, shooting, abseiling... Our list of activities is long, varied and open to all cadets. Yes it’s a challenge, but that’s what life’s all about. The Corps motto is 'Venture Adventure'.
