As an Air Cadet, you will receive the opportunity to fly in the RAF's basic trainer, the Grob Tutor. Under the guidance and supervision of a trained pilot, you will be able to control the aircraft yourself and even perform your own aerobatic manoeuvres. Flying takes place at the many Air Experience Flying schools across the UK, and each Air Cadet will have at least one flight each year.
Flying Scholarship Scheme
The ATC provides training to help applicants to the RAF Flying Scholarship Scheme. The scheme awards 20 hours dual and 5 hours solo flying at your nearest civil flying school for free. Completion will see you awarded your flying scholarship badge. After that you are able to continue your instruction towards a PPL (Private Pilots Licence) at your own cost.
