Loughborough Air Cadets are holding a recruiting event for both potential new recruits and potential adult staff on Monday the 9th September at 7.30pm. We are based at Loughborough TA Centre on Leicester Road, and we will have the doors open so you can come along and see what we get up to. There will be interactive stands where you can talk to the cadets and staff about our vast array of activities including: Flying, Gliding, Duke of Edinburgh Award, Sports, Music, Fieldcraft, Annual Camps, Target Shooting, Adventure Training, Drill, Radio, First Aid and BTEC. The Air Cadets is for boys and girls aged 13-18 years old. Not only can you take part in the activities shown above but also we will help you to develop life skills during your cadet career. We will give you a free uniform to wear once you have completed your initial training and give you access to loads opportunities at cheap prices! All this and it looks great on your CV once you’ve spent a bit of time with us. As adult staff you will get to explore all the great benefits the cadets do but with the added responsibilities. You can take on a role at the squadron; help out at camps all across the UK and abroad, go on courses specifically aimed at adults within the corps and your experience will also look great on a CV. Above all it’s fun, challenging and engaging. You will get to meet new people and share some unique experiences all across the world.
