Now I have myself in a slight predicament. I myself am a 17 year old SNCO. I have recently started a relationship with one of my Corporals we’ve been together for a few months.She is in fact two years younger than myself. I have gone through the Air Cadet policies in regards to whether or not this is acceptable in the ACO. I have come back with the answer that it’s fine as long as it doesn’t impact your role at the squadron. Along with this is that it’s at the OC’s discretion to whether or not it is allowed.
My Squadron Staff are unaware of this relationship and I intend to keep it as such, unless another NCO happens to mention anything. I have not changed how I behave on Squadron with her and treat her the same as other NCOs. However, I just wish for outside feedback on this issue.
My sources are from ACP 4, child protection. I’d list more specific information, but quite frankly I cannot remember where abouts this is.
I should also make the point that this happened outside of cadets. Therefore it isn’t known by more than a few trusted friends outside of the corps.
