NOTE: Many of the gliders on this page were caught in the change-over from CF-xxx to C-Fxxx registrations, and have carried both forms in their time with the Air Cadets.  I have tried to list the aircraft by the first form used while owned by the Air Cadets, and note the date of change over, when known.
