Another Eight Sign-Up to Venture Adventure

Congratulations to the eight Cadets of our 4th Recruit Intake (RTF 09/3) who were enrolled into the Air Training Corps during Final Parade on Sunday.

The members of RTF 09/3 who were enrolled on 11 October, with their Flight Commander, Off Cdt Robinson.

Over the past 5 weeks, the Junior Cadets of RTF have been learning about the history and structure of the Air Training Corps, our Ranks and Classifications, been shown how to iron their uniforms and polish their shoes, and have begun to get the hang of basic Drill movements.

During the Enrollment Ceremony, they made the Cadet Promise and were given their F3822 Record of Service books and berets in return.

The hard work isn't over yet though - they will now spend the next 3 months learning more about the RAF, airfields, flying and the history of flight, map reading and basic expedition theory, communications, shooting in the ATC, and lots more drill... And all of that is just the basics for being a Cadet!

Thank you to all the parents who attended the parade today, your support for the cadets is very important and valued by all. For anyone else interested in joining the ATC, the next Intake will begin in the new year.
