Fancy learning survival skills that go beyond being able to locate the nearest burger joint or phone charger outlet? Then Fieldcraft might be for you.
Fieldcraft gives you a chance to learn the skills you need to survive and navigate yourself around outdoors, in unfamiliar places. It means sorting food, seeking/ building a shelter as protection from the weather and navigating from A to B as quickly and effectively as you can. All using basic tools (not a sat nav in sight).
This is where Air Cadets gets to experience training closer to that of RAF personnel. The principle is the same - think on your feet, adapt to your situation and work to your team's strengths + you get to wear camouflage green, a change from the usual uniform.
1344Sqn does quite a bit of fieldcraft training throughout the year, visiting local MOD bases where we can practice all aspects of field training. We then use some of that training in competitions such as Cambrian Patrol, WARMA and Nijmegen.
