Annual Summer Training Camps
Annual summer training camps are held to enable staff and spare-time volunteers, while spending a week in uniform at an RWAF Station, to attend a series of lectures, training courses and social events.
A core-team of instructors, provided with pre-formatted lesson plans, are drawn from those spare-time officers present, who in turn would be supervised by a team of up to nine full-time officers. Full-time officers are be present for the duration of the summer programme of training camps. On the last full day of each camp, a Cabinet Minister or senior RWAF Officer of the rank of Air Vice-Marshal or above visits to inspect a Guard of Honour, tour the training facilities and address the assembled personnel.
A typical camp's day-to-day programme would consist of:
Sunday – Afternoon arrival of junior officers and volunteer NCO instructors.
