I’m just joining the Air Training Corps in New Zealand. I was wondering how to address the other cadets. I know you call them by their rank, such as Sergeant, or Corporal, but how would I address a rank with a longer name, like Leading Air Cadet?
its just there surname you don’t say leading cadet
Is Leading Air Cadet a rank? Or a technical classification or qualification?
Here in the UK, a Cadet can be different classifications, including a Leading Air Cadet, but their rank would still be cadet
In the NZATC they do indeed have a Leading Air Cadet Rank, two bladed prop.
I would refer to them as LAC < Last Name >.
I would expect ranks to be referred to as (localism may apply):
Flight Sergeant Bloggs
You may find that Flight Sergeants and CWO’s just get called ‘Flight’ or ‘Warrant’ when talking to them e.g “Excuse me Flight”, “Warrant, do you have a moment?”
But if in doubt, just ask them. they won’t bite!
Thank you sir.
