The Aims of the Air Training Corps as laid down in its Royal Warrant
To promote and encourage among young people a practical interest in aviation and the Royal Air Force
To provide training which will be useful in the Services and civilian life
To foster the spirit of adventure and develop qualities of leadership and good citizenship
I think the original one I remember when I joined (and must have a copy somewhere) referred to ‘young men’, thus I feel this is the modified 1967 version, adapted for having boys and girls in the 80s, hence the term ‘young people’.
