Squadron Leader Johnson, said “One of the aims of the Air Cadets is to develop qualities of leadership and good citizenship. When we promote cadets we aim to encourage the growth of their leadership skills, and encourage them to take on a greater role in running their Squadron. It also recognises the effort and enthusiasm they have shown so far in their cadet career”.
