Qualified Aerospace Instructor Course
The Qualified Aerospace Instructors Course (QAIC) is a training course for 16-20 year old, Master Air Cadets. Its graduates are uniquely qualified to operate the new equipment and programmes purchased for the Regional Activity Centres (RACs), the Air Cadet Engagement (ACE) platforms and the Air Operations Acquaintance Centre. It also provides cadets with an overview of many elements of Aerospace applications, both within the military and civilian areas.
The course takes place over seven training weekends between September and the following Easter during which time the cadets will complete a programme of formal training covering subjects as diverse as Air Traffic Control, Basic Flight Training, Air Power, Radio, Aerodynamics, Leadership, Presentation Skills and Group Work. Cadets are expected to attend every weekend as well as working in between training periods by preparing lectures and doing research on various subjects. As well as continual assessment during the training weekends cadets will need to the final assessment at the end of the course.
On completion of the course, graduates are awarded the QAI Lanyard to wear on their uniform and are authorised to deploy and run the ACE platform and assist at the various RAC’s around the country.
