I and many before me have tried and failed to raise an overseas detachment for the ACF in Cyprus. At present there are many service children that have nothing to do here, and if they were in the ACF before, they miss out when the parents are posted as they have to leave the ACF. I have been to the top on this one and I was informed that there is no funding, but hey the Primeminster has been quoted as bringing the cadets forces into focus and that many schools will be encouraged to raise cadet units. Yes you could argue that what about the staffing how would they get back for courses, well let me just state that at present the Air Training Corps have detachments / Flights in Germany Cyprus and Gibralter so clearly funding is not the issue. I conducted a poll here in Cyprus and found in Episkopi alone there are ex cadets and new recruits that want an ACF here in Cyprus, and if a figure is needed then try 50 and that includes the normal drop offs that happen when you do recruitment. I have teachers in Episkopi and Dehkelia that want to become instructors and the schools wish to help. There is also infrastructue and equipment for training, and service staff are willing to help to, I have even brought the JSP535 to the island. So come on ACF get with the program and give the kids what they want for a change. Please bring on your questions and doubts and I will awnser them.
