Having recently assumed the role of Honorary Air Commandant of the Air Cadets upon the retirement of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh as Honorary Air Commodore-in-Chief, I would like to thank all members of the Organisation for inviting me to lend my support to your work.


I am delighted to be able to continue my link to the Royal Air Force family through this new affiliation and I believe that the Air Cadets bring genuine benefit to our young people and indeed wider society. The Cadets offer countless opportunities to develop leadership, teamwork skills and community spirit as well as self-confidence borne of testing boundaries in a safe but exciting environment. These activities are supported by an incredibly dedicated team of adult volunteers and staff who are integral to the success of the Cadets.


I feel very proud to be involved in supporting present and future generations of Air Cadets and I know they will go on to achieve their full potential, just as thousands have done before them.
