Adventure Training

In the Air Training Corps you don't just learn to fly you learn to many more things including a lot of adventure training.


Canoeing is great in the cadets. Middlesex Wing often learn to canoe on the River Thames. You can gain your British Canoe Union 1 Star and 2 Star awards within the air training corps. All of this for next to nothing.
