Classifications


For each of these classifications cadets study a variety of subjects including airmanship, navigation, first aid, communications, principles of flight, airframes and propulsion.

Each successive classification allows a cadet greater participation. For example, cadets must be First Class before they can take part in some activities such as UK annual camps, while Leading Cadets can participate in overseas activities.


Cadets who have achieved the Master Air Cadet classification have completed their academic training and can attain a BTEC Award in Aviation Studies. Instructor cadets wear a yellow lanyard over the left shoulder, and are allowed to teach other cadets.


Cadets can also qualify for various other BTEC awards through the training that is carried out at squadron.
