With a number of young, enthusiastic ladies and gentlemen who happen to be in the Air Training Corps joining us recently, I have decided to create a sub-board for them to discuss ATC stuff.
There are not too many places like this available online, so I hope you'll all use it wisely, respect the older forum members by using punctuation and proper English (not texting type please!), keep it clean, don't have too much of the "our squadroin's better than your squadron" nonsense, and all should be fine.
So, all ATC members, ex-ATC members and other interested people, you're welcome to post away with questions, answers, issues, competition results, camp details, photo, news, upcoming events and the likes here.
Spread the word among your squadron friends and feel free to bring other cadets to the forum. And the Sea Scouts and Army Cadets are also welcome if you'd like to join in.

Good to see you ATC guys and girls are spreading the word about the forum, you're all welcome here so long as rules are obeyed and pleasant harmony reigns.
The forum has over the past ten months built up a strong core membership of people from all spectrums of NZ and the world who're interested in NZ military and civil aviation, and they come from all backgrounds and are all ages.
The forum is here to share knowledge and discuss and share our interests. The ATC has never before been a discussed topic on the forum, so I hope it will become an interesting sub-board for all to read and will add a new dimension to the forum at large. It's nice to see the enthusiasm and the interest in the younger generations.
And thanks for the thought that the cadets will treat this forum as it should be. I know they will, because if they don't they'll hear from me. With the wide variety of excellent people the forum is frequented by, I'd hate to lose any through a change in the forum dynamics, so that's why you youngins have a seperate board for your own stuff. But feel free to use the other boards for relevant discussion in other aviation topics. But I do insist please, use proper English, punctuation and captal letters. There's also a spellchecker provided when you post (though even I am guilty of forgetting this sometimes). But as you're probably aware, nothing infuriates some of us older internet users more than texting phone-style abbreviations. Please don't use them here otherwise some of our older (ie long-standing) and valuable memebrs may disappear. Thanks. Not having a dig at anyone here, this is a general rule of thumb I just wanted to get across. Cheers guys. Enjoy the forum.
Attention all those who are truely into the Air Training Corps and Especially if you are at 30 Squadron ATC. myself and FLTLT ATCassidy have been kindly asked by AVM Dave Homewood to create an interview of Veterans from RSA's if 30 Squadron Cadets would like to be apart of this please either post a thread on this forum or email mysle for cassidy. please help us out.
