There are plenty of opportunities for cadets to get in the air, every cadet will get the chance to have a least one flight per year.

Air Experience Flights could even see you take to the skies in a Grob Tutor light aircraft as pictured above.

Excel at it it and you could be put forward for an overseas flight on a Hercules, VC10 or Tri-star.

If you’re really lucky you could even join a pilot in one of our fast-jet aircraft or experience the unbeatable exhilaration of a Red Arrows flight!


Air Experience Flight (AEF) instructors are all current or former RAF service pilots who volunteer to pass on their knowledge and enthusiasm for flying to you. Flying takes place at one of 12 AEFs around the country, mainly at RAF stations. You're shown how the aircraft flies and given the chance to control it and experience aerobatics. And the views from 3,000ft are stunning.
