Adventure Training

Adventure Training (AT) is one of the most popular activities amongst Air Cadets, and 1224 Squadron has a number of staff members qualified to instruct and lead various AT activities.

The ATC has two Air Cadet Adventure Training Centres (ACATC's) in Llanbedr in Snowdonia, Wales and in the Lake District, Cumbria, at Windermere.  Cadets that attend these centres can experience rock-climbing, abseiling, canoeing, high-ropes, hill-walking and more.

Central & East Yorkshire Wing also offers a week long Survival & Leadership course at Hag Dyke in the North Yorks Moors. See here for more information.

The ATC places a lot of emphasis on skills such as Leadership, Teamwork andInitiative.  Each squadron runs their ownextensive training in these areas, butAir Cadets can also apply to attend the highly sought after Cadet Leadership Courses at RAF Cranwell and Frimley Park, which are week-long. There you can learn more skills to make you a confident leader, and put them into practical use with other cadets from all over the United Kingdom. Cadets that successfully complete these courses gain the Air Cadet Leadership badge.
