Jonathan Grant, of the Exmouth Air Cadets, said they are only interested in ‘you and your potential’, adding that being an air cadet ‘is its own reward’. 

He added: “Aside from flying, sports, target shooting, adventure training and great fun.  

“You constantly see the benefits of your own efforts, building on your achievements and earning BTECs and DoE Awards.  

“You'll be expected to take part in as many of the activities as possible, but with what's on offer you won't need much persuading.”
