Cadet Warrant Officer James Williams said: “We meet every Tuesday and Thursday evening and there is something happening most weekends. We get the opportunity to go flying and gliding, take part in the Duke of Edinburgh awards scheme, go on adventure training weekends and, in school holidays, week long camps as well as taking part in parades on occasions like Remembrance Sunday.

“On top of all this we make new friends and get to have fun.”

Commanding Officer, Flight Lieutenant Darrell Reid added: “This is a perfect opportunity for both parents and potential cadets to explore what the Royal Air Force Air Cadets can provide. Our aims are to promote an interest in aviation, provide training useful for both service and civilian life and to foster the spirit of adventure.”

The open evening will take place at the Cadet Centre, Sherwood Avenue, Newark, on Tuesday, May 21, from 7.30pm.
