Flight Lieutenant Tom Churnside RAFVR(T), Officer Commanding 381 Reading Squadron comments “Air Cadets offers young people from all walks of life a chance to be active, learn new skills and make new friends. The Air Cadets doesn’t interfere with their school responsibilities and cadets take an invaluable set of experiences and strong personal ethics with them when they leave, giving them the tools to succeed in whatever they choose to do in the future.

The Air Cadets gives young people a feel for what life is like in the services. It is also true that some cadets successfully apply and take up a career within the services, but there is no formal requirement to join. Their personal development as confident and spirited young individuals is our main aim.”
