The air cadets move to the sea cadet model of management & funding.
Alternatively all three (four?) cadet organisations come under a combined joint HQ with either a single 2* as overall head or a 1* with each service lead by an OF-5. Sort of a mirror of the MoD structure just solely cadets.
Fully funded activities.
Lots of shooting.
Lots of AEF
A leadership CoC who actively listen and respond appropriately.
Growth in cadet numbers and sqn numbers.
An enhanced package of recognition for volunteers, including a new medal for CFAVs for regular issue for those that go above and beyond.
Money made available to fix the built estate.
Yep. All three CFs combined into one, under single cadet HQ command. RAF branch: Definitely fewer flying opportunities (mostly given to well-heeled cdts from LaSER region); shooting and fieldcraft provided by Army branch (formerly ACF); and increased focus on AT & DoE.
or more accurately Project Astra will have raised some valid and well thought out points, with a suggested timeline of actions only to be side-lined almost immediately in the hope it will be forgotten about…then Project Ardua comes along with a very similar mission objective and repeats the exercise 10-20 years later, with references back to Project Astra highlighting problems X, Y and Z could have been tackled by adopting solution A, B and C from project Astra…
Someone at my unit feels that the ATC will cease to exist in 10/15 years with many units closing due to their viability (lack of staff, cadets or both).
HQAC then pushing on with their plan to enhance the number of CCF’s in schools to compensate the number of ATC units closing which ensures there are no job losses at HQAC and they can put a positive spin on the fact that the ATC no longer exists as they will have plenty of schools offering the chance to join the RAF section.
Personally, I have no idea but I do hope someone up top decides to invest in the volunteers and stop treating them as employees. Reduce the admin burden and let us do what we do best which is to get our Cadets out and about doing all the fun things
