Air Cadets study a wide syllabus combining classroom based academic work with other more practical activities. The opportunity is there to pass through the syllabus and end up as an instructor yourself. At this stage, you will automatically qualify for a BTEC in Aviation Studies which is equivalent to one science based GCSE.
