I joined the Air Cadets because I felt that it could help me Pursue my career to become an RAF fighter pilot, I also joined because of all the amazing opportunities they have offered me like camps, flying, shooting. I love how when I joined I created new friends straight away which are now like family and no matter what happens we will always stay together as a squadron.
I joined the Air Cadets initially to pursue my ambition to become a member of the Royal Air Force. It gave me dozens of opportunities to better my skills and offers so many exciting prospects. I didn't think I would fit in at first but then I realized the ATC is for everyone.
I joined cadets because my friend suggested I join. At first I was a bit wary; however the more time went on the more I wanted to stay.
I wanted to join the Air Training Corps ever since I was 11 years old. The reason why is it would give me a chance to experience new things like: Flying, gliding shooting, adventure training, Duke of Edinburgh scheme, taking part in sports and ultimately building yourself up to a better future. No matter what your personality is or what background you come from none of that matters you can come to cadets as a total different person than what you are at home and nobody will know the difference in you or you can be yourself and get your new friends to know the real you.
I joined the Air Cadets because I saw the stand on Tram Sunday in Fleetwood and my dad pointed them out, so I had a look. I wanted to join a club or something because I was new to the area and wanted to meet friends and join a youth organisation. I thought it was a good chance to see and learn about the aircraft I know and love.
I have always had a keen interest in aircraft and the RAF. I heard what Air Cadets offered and thought I'd see what it was like. When I arrived I instantly felt welcome and made friends very quickly. I have had some amazing experiences and I'm very glad I joined.
