There are many activities and opportunities open to you as a cadet, some which are not available to you anywhere else! Below is a brief description of a few of these activities.

Flying & Gliding

We offer cadets from the age of 13 opportunities to fly in our Viking TMk1 Glider or Grob Tutor.  Cadets can take part in Air Experience Flying and from the age of 16 can complete scholarships that will see them reach solo standard and be given the opportunity to complete a solo sortie, sometimes before they are allowed to learn how to drive!


Each year there are many opportunities for cadets to attend a camp.  This usually of the form of a full week or long weekend and provides cadets with many opportunities to develop their skills and try something new.  Recently we have held camps at Garelochead, RAF Lossiemouth and Barry Buddon.

Adventure Training

The Air Training Corps offers a wide range of adventure training for all cadets. We offer activities such as fieldcraft, which involves learning how to survive in the field, camoflage yourself and field communications.

First Aid

Cadets can learn some very valuable, practical basics of first aid, for example how to deal with minor medical problems in serious situations, until the correct and fully trained medical help arrive.

Map Skills

Map reading skills and expedition experience can be used in many situations and is an integral part of the Air Cadet’s outdoor activities. Skills such as reading grid references and taking a back bearing with a compass are taught as well as getting to the destination efficiently and safely.


Our unit offers opportunites to attend musical events, ceremonies and camps. These include Marching Band, Concert Band and Piping Band.

Radio Communications

Within our squadron we have the ability to use Very High Frequency radio equipment. We also have the capability to learn and use other means of communication, such as Satellite Communications and Radio Direction and finding.

Rifle Shooting

The Air Training Corps offers cadets the opportunity to use air rifles, the L144, 0.22 calibre rifle and the General Purpose L98 with all shooting practices under strict supervision by military trained personnel. You can enter into shooting competitions and cadets can gain the experience to achieve marksman badges at different levels of competition.

Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Air Cadet organisation takes part in the D of E awards at all levels of ability; Bronze, Silver and Gold. Cadets obtain each award by preparing for and taking part in many of the activities within the scheme.
