Welcome to Bader

Bader is the principal information management system for the Royal Air Force Air Cadets (RAFAC) which is accessible by all members of the organisation and permanent HQ staff. Combining the Microsoft Office 365 suite with our own applications such as SMS (Squadron Management System), Cadet Portal and Ultilearn, it provides a common group of applications to underpin the RAF Air Cadets and delivery of its key services to cadets.
