Are you bored, fed up with dark nights, cold weather and think there is nothing to do? Are you aged between 12 and 18?
Well look no further that Ferndown ATC based near Ferndown Upper School and the Leisure Centre.
Following an extremely successful year that saw cadet numbers increase, the staff at Ferndown have more plans for the coming year and the squadron now has a structured training programme, which has received positive feedback from students.
As well as the field craft weekends at Ferndown and Bovington, there will be a number of gliding and flying opportunities. Weather permitting most cadets will get a chance to take part in one or the other. The squadron has close links with the local area and charity organisations such as JTYF and has a busy schedule of events including Relay for Life, the Dorset Plane Pull, the Bournemouth Air Festival, Poppy Appeal and Remembrance Sunday as well as a number of local council events.
If you enjoy sport, music, flying, shooting, want to learn first aid, navigation or how to fly in formation on the flight simulator then come along and give it a try.
Anyone looking for something just a little bit different, the chance for adventure and to learn new skills, should contact the squadron through the website at http://www.2358atc.org.uk
