The primary objectives of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets are as follows:
- Foster and cultivate a hands-on interest in aviation and the Royal Air Force among young individuals.
- Provide training that holds practical value for both military service and civilian life.
- Cultivate a spirit of adventure, as well as nurture qualities of leadership and responsible citizenship.
Membership in the CCF (RAF) is a thrilling, fulfilling, and highly enjoyable endeavour. As a cadet, you’ll uncover latent skills, engage in unexpected activities and visits, and forge connections with like-minded peers who will become your comrades and companions.
Furthermore, you’ll have the chance to challenge your limits through adventure training, potentially represent your country or school on the International Air Cadet Exchange program, or enhance your abilities through participation in the Air Cadet Leadership Course. Your potential as a cadet can truly shine.
Certain fundamental CCF activities like first aid, navigation, leadership, and drill are undertaken by cadets across all sections of the CCF. However, each branch also offers specialised activities. The RAF Section affords opportunities to engage in a diverse range of activities, courses, and camps.
