It seems mainly male teenagers, I know a lot of friends who have joined the air cadets because they want to become an RAF Pilot, I thought about it for a while why there is such a large interest in becoming an RAF pilot yet I just couldn't figure out why, I asked one of my friends why he wants a career as an RAF pilot and to my surprise he himself did not know, he just said everyone else is doing it so I want to! Which is quite worrying as it seems everyone else is joining the Air Cadets because everyone else is, this is the wrong career path for most teenagers at they have no idea why they're doing it, any thoughts?

Flying fast jets.

Excitement and adrenalin.

Blowing things up.

Boys n big toys.

Pussy magnet.

Surely they would go with a better paid job, as the salary of an RAF pilot isn't to good anyway and is barely above average.

My friend wants to join the RAF but it is something she is really quite passionate about, but her main influence is her dad, who was in the RAF. I think the reasons are different for each person and we can't really generalize why people as a whole want to join but yeah, a lot of people want to do it because of their friends. Or if you're in my all-girls school, people join air cadets because of the boys

Surely the flying would get boring after a while, and they would be blowing things up while in a jet only several times in there whole career.

Nah. RAF fast jets are not long haul airliners.
