The aims of the Air Cadet Movement are:
Air Cadets make absolutely no commitments regarding future military training. However, those who do join the service start out with a big advantage over other applicants.
Senior cadets who are properly qualified can obtain employment at summer camps and special courses - a chance to "earn while you learn".
Exchange cadets are selected on a merit basis. Cadets eligible for the International Exchange Program must be 17 years old, have an outstanding Air Cadet and school record as well as a good reputation in his or her home community.
