Future of British military aviation get inspired at National Air and Space Camp

Hundreds of air cadets gathered at RAF Syerston for the event, aimed at inspiring them to enter aviation and aerospace careers.

More than 450 air cadets from all over the UK have attended the National Air and Space Camp.

The brightest of the next generation of Royal Air Force personnel were selected for their interest and aptitude in the field of aerospace.

A range of specialist training activities and industry partner visits are provided throughout the flagship camp for the RAF Air Cadets.

The camp is held at RAF Syerston in Nottinghamshire.

It is designed to inspire teenagers with opportunities in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

The camp's industry day culminated in characteristic RAF style, with the cadets being treated to a private show by the Red Arrows, the Chinook Display Team and others.

Cadets were also given the opportunity to learn about building and flying drones, to use flight simulators, and to speak with representatives of firms that offer careers in aviation and aerospace.
