Air cadets launch recruitment drive

Created on 12/10/2021 @ 11:15


With Covid-19 preventing Welshpool’s air cadets branch from recruiting since January 2020, an invitation is being sent out to join from October 18-29.

Anyone aged from 12 and in Year 8 to 17, looking for a new challenge with an interest in aviation and space is being encouraged to give the Royal Air Force Air Cadets a go.

“It's important to know that we're not a recruiting organisation for the Services (but it's great if you decide you want to join later on). We're not interested in anything but you and your potential, and will help you get the most from your experience as a cadet,” said Keiron Cornell, Commanding Officer, 2364 Welshpool Sqn.

“We have high standards to maintain as we are a 'military' youth organisation and you'll naturally take pride in your uniform and appearance. You'll be well mannered and self-disciplined. You'll be joining an organisation of which you’ll be very proud.”

The Welshpool squadron is also looking to recruit more adult volunteers which is open to anyone over 20 that is seeking a new challenge to develop skills, leadership qualities and gain qualifications too. 

New members are also being encouraged for the Civilian Committee which helps to raise funds to keep the squadron running.
