Aviation Studies

Gaining new skills is a major part of being an Air Cadet – and aviation studies play an important part in this.

But you won’t just acquire knowledge; there’s the chance to gain a nationally-recognised BTEC qualification (the equivalent of two GCSEs at grades A-C) that will set you apart from your peers when you head on to further education or are looking to break into the world of work.

You can even go further and work towards a National Aerospace qualification – offering a unique insight into aerospace, aviation and engineering.

Aviation studies cover subjects such as principles of flight, air navigation, and propulsion, and will be an ongoing learning journey during your time as a cadet.

It goes without saying that aviation is at the heart of what being an Air Cadet is about. It’s not just classroom-based facts and figures, however. It’s every Air Cadet’s dream to go flying or gliding, and a good grasp of aviation skills is essential if you want to make the most of these two unbeatable experiences.

Everyone wants to reach for the sky. Join 346 (Tynemouth) Squadron and you’ll soon find yourself doing just that.
