15 of the Cadets from 59 Squadron took a trip to the Skiing complex at the XScape, Yorkshire.
Every year, Air Cadets from around the Corps are given the opportunity to attend a Camp on an operational RAF station, anywhere in the United Kingdom.
Cadets are able to take part in shooting activities as soon as they join. Cadets are initially trained on either Air Rifles, or the No. 8 (Enfield) Rifle. Once cadets are trained in the safe handling of the rifle they can then be taught marksmanship principles, to improve their performance and confidence. Once a cadet reaches the age of 14 they are eligible to train on the L98 rifle.
The Air Training Corps is the largest body involved in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
Adventure training in the Wing is where cadets can experience challenges both physical & mental, at the same time as having a great time.
Flying is one of the key activities that draws cadets and adult helpers alike to the Air Training Corps.
