rafa YOUTH Cyprus Award
The 2016 award is currently on hold.
As well as the Flying Scholarships we have another unique annual award for young flyers: the rafa YOUTH Cyprus Award. We organise and sponsor a fully-funded expedition to RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus for 10 young people. The trip is usually planned to coincide with the dates that the RAF Aerobatic Team (the Red Arrows) are on training detachment on Akrotiri.
The expedition includes a variety of activities such as visiting the dog section, going to local attractions and, subject to operational requirements, meeting the Red Arrows.
Those nominated for the award will have shown outstanding commitment and effort to aspire to the aims of thier organisation, often overcoming difficult or challenging circumstances.
The group comprises six Air Training Corps cadets, a Girls Venture Corps Air Cadet, an Air Explorer Scout and two Combined Cadet Force (RAF) cadets.
rafa YOUTH is the RAF Association’s exciting online youth membership scheme for young flying enthusiasts. Membership is open to those aged 13 to 17 who are Air Cadets, Girls Venture Corps Air Cadets, Air Scouts, Air Explorer Scouts or RAF Combined Cadet Force (RAF) members.
