No. 41 (City of Porirua) Squadron
Air Training Corps
Providing military-based leadership, personal development, and specialist training to the youth of Porirua since 1980.
The sky’s the limit. We provide opportunities to learn to fly, including aviation theory and practical flying. Through ATCANZ and NZDF our Cadets also have the opportunity to attend weeklong flying camps.
Leaders of the future. Our Cadets will learn the skills necessary to be our future leaders, including problem solving and communication.
Supporting our community. Our Cadets learn good citizenship begins by supporting the community. You will see our Cadets at activities such as Anzac Day, Poppy Day, and Citizenship Ceremonies.
Building confidence and a spirit of adventure. Our Cadets will learn how to survive in the wilderness, such as river crossing and navigation. More importantly they will learn to challenge themselves.
The foundation of military skill. Drill promotes self-discipline and teamwork which is the ethos of our training and essential for our leaders of tomorrow.
Building mental agility and wellbeing. Shooting requires the ability to be aware of ourselves, our surroundings, what we’re doing, and not to be overwhelmed by what’s going on around us (Mindfulness).
