Air Cadet (Air Training Corps)


The Air Training Corps (ATC) is a British youth organisation sponsored by the Ministry of Defence and the Royal Air Force. The majority of staff are volunteers Although many ATC cadets go on to join the RAF or other services, the ATC is no longer set up as a recruiting organisation.

Activities include sport, walking, ceremonial drill, rifle shooting, field-craft; powered aircraft and glider flying; and other outdoor activities, as well classification training leading up to a BTEC in Aviation Studies. 

Week-long trips to RAF stations, or camps offering adventure training or music, allow the opportunity for cadets to gain a taste of military life and often to gain some flying experience in RAF gliders and RAF training aircraft such as the Grob Tutor.
