MABLETHORPE’S Air Cadets are on the hunt for new members as they fly through another year of activities.

The 1228 Detached Flight operate from Sherwood Fields and offer cadets everything from gliding and shooting to adventure training and sports.

Meeting twice a week, cadets can boost CVs with new qualifications, tackle the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme or simply enjoy the social side of the Air Training Corps.

Anyone aged 13 to 18, male or female, can become a cadet and enjoy the world of excitement and activities you wouldn’t normally get to experience in everyday life.

Cadets can even obtain CVQO qualifications through a BTEC in aviation studies, the equalivalent to a GCSE.

Mablethorpe’s Commanding Officer, Scott Gardiner, said: “The list of things that are available is huge, too much to list, making new friends is one of the big points as you get to go away and meet people from all over the country.

“If anybody wants to find out more call during parade nights or visit the website, I am also happy to do presentations to people if they require.”

The cost of all this is just £2 per cadet per week.

1228 Squadron meet Mondays and Fridays from 7pm until 9.30pm. Call 01507 473179 or visit www.raf.mod.uk/aircadets .
