    Hi. My name is Geoffrey. I am interested in joining the Air Cadets and wondered if people had any advice?

    Join Air Cadets! It's brilliant.

    The actual experience varies a lot depending on your squadron, but you'll get to learn about aviation, do shooting, fieldcraft, drill and go flying (the best).

    You can either contact your nearest squadron to ask if they do open days (where you can go around the squadron with other potential cadets and see what things are like) or just turn up on a parade night and have a look around. Would recommend asking if they have an open evening/intake night because then you'll get to meet other like-minded people instead of just going in by yourself (which could be a bit daunting).

    You should definitely join - it's fun, it's exciting, you get to meet new people and do so much.
