Stonehaven Air Cadets are offering high-flying opportunities for boys and girls aged between 12 and 17- years- old to show what they can do.

The Air Cadets are inviting anyone between those ages along to their parade nights to get a feel for what they are all about.

The squadron is one of 18 units that make up the North East Scotland wing and takes part in many activities .

These include flying, gliding, target shooting, hiking, camping, athletics, football, hockey, rugby, netball, swimming, radio and flight simulations.

Karen Avis from the Stonehaven Air Cadets said: “As well as offering the chance to experience a number of exciting activities such as flying, gliding, target shooting, camping, athletics, sports, radio and flight simulator training; we also give cadets an opportunity to learn new skills that can be used in everyday life, such as first aid, obtaining the Duke of Edinburgh Award and, for those who are interested, arm them with the skills required to join the RAF.

“Uniforms are provided free of charge and the Squadron assists with costs for competitions, weekends away, etc.”

The Stonehaven squadron parades at 7pm on Thursday evenings at their headquarters.

These are located down Beachgate Lane.

To find them, take the lane heading to the beach front by the Spar shop and they are the last building on the left.
