Adventure Training is an essential part of the Air Cadet'straining syllabus and the place where team effort really matters - you'll build new friendships, and learn to rely on the other people you're with to get the job done. It also lets you show off your leadership qualities.
The air cadets facilitates many activities and at 344, we are lucky enough to have staff that are qualified instructors in some of these activities, such as obstacle course training. While 344 tries to get involved in as many of the activities that are on offer as possible, if a cadet shows particular enthusiasm and leadership on a particular type of activities, staff will respond and help to facilitate where possible.
Cpl Lauren Borgers took the lead on an activity that she was particularly keen to do while at the air cadets, static line parachute jump, which was successfully completed in summer 2016. Read more here.
Something for everyone
Remember, whatever your personal tastes, nothing is compulsory. There is a wide range of adventurous activities to get stuck into, so if climbing isn't for you perhaps canoeing is. Sometimes what's on offer depends on the squadron you attend, but everything you do is supervised by qualified trainers who will ensure you get the most out of it.
Between local activities and visits to camps, you will have the chance to experience kayaking, hill walking, camping, caving, mountain biking, offshore sailing and winter sports to name just a few.
