What Happens When I Join?

We’ve got your first 3 months mapped out for you. It’ll be challenging and interesting as you learn about what the ATC has to offer and try new activities. Have you ever shot a rifle? Completed a military obstacle course? Flown an aircraft? By the time you’ve finished your first 3 months you may well have managed all of this… and more.

On your first night you’ll be introduced to the staff and Cadets, we’ll assign you an experienced Cadet to help you and you’ll be added to one of our two Flights, from day one you’ll be part of the yearly inter-flight competition. During our mid-evening break you’ll have the chance to talk to others whilst enjoying a snack (don’t forget to bring a little bit of money to buy something from the canteen). By the time our final parade is held at 2130 you’ll know what to do and already feel part of the team.

In your first month we’ll teach you everything you need to know to be a Cadet. You’ll learn what Discipline really means, what the rank structure is and how to carry out some basic drill manoeuvres. At the end of the month you’ll get your uniform and record book. Welcome to the ATC!

Your next two months will be building on this framework. There is plenty to learn; how to use a compass, what is a Tornado, how to use a rifle safely. By the end of your third month you’ll know the answer to these and much much more.

Interested? Come down, give us a call or let us know through our online form.
