Corby Air Cadets have a Growth Spurt

On Saturday 10th September 2016, 422 (Corby) Squadron Royal Air Force Air Cadets opened up their doors to welcome the next potential recruits for Intake 02/16.

The potential cadets were given a guided tour of the Squadron with a helpful Q & A session from the current cadets of the Squadron.  They were interested to find out what the Air Cadets has to offer, from flying and gliding to the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Fieldcraft Training and much more.
