The Air Training Corps Association of New Zealand (ATCANZ)
The Association is established for the primary purpose of supporting and promoting the interests of the ATC movement in New Zealand and benefiting the community by:
Seeking to develop the character of the cadets enrolled with the ATC by:
- assistance with the provision of facilities,
- teaching aviation skills,
- provision of a disciplined learning environment,
- personal development by progression through the ATC movement, and
- interaction with other cadet forces units and association with cadets from kindred overseas organisations.
Encouraging the ethic of community service with ATC cadets by fostering the availability of ATC cadets for assisting organisations, such as The Royal New Zealand Returned and Services Association Incorporated, with street day appeals and ANZAC Day and similar ceremonial observances.
Administering the civilian support organisation for the ATC in accordance with the provisions of the Defence Act and the New Zealand Cadet Forces Charter of Support.
The Association is dedicated to the retention of the Cadet Forces, organized and administered within the statutory provisions of the Defence Act.
