Shooting & Marksmanship


Marksmanship goes a long way back in the history of Air Cadets and is one of our most
popular activities. Think you can concentrate on distant targets and fire with consistent accuracy?
It’s not easy. It requires focus, agility and a very steady hand. We’ll teach you to handle a variety
of weapons safely. Firing is always done lying on your stomach (the prone position) at static targets.
Progress through the course and you’ll experience different types of weapons and could even take
part in shooting competitions if you really prove your skills. To start with you’ll be firing at targets
that are fairly close – around 25m away. As you advance through weapons and your skill builds,
you will fire at targets 100m or further away.
