Tonight we enrolled another new cadet onto the SQN after they completed their initial training period. This is a massive achievement for our new recruits who joined us during lockdown and started their journey with a mixture of virtual and f2f lessons. Each of them have shown an impressive level of commitment and enthusiasm over the last few months and we look forward to seeing their continuing development. Welcome to the Squadron, welcome to the Corps.
Today two of our cadets were lucky enough to spend their day gliding at RAF Syerston. The day started with ground school going through safety procedures before they took to the sky for a couple of flights each. It's great to see the cadets enjoying themselves and having this opportunity after a long break from flying.
We were back in the Peak District again this weekend with 12 cadets from Bedfordshire & Cambridgeshire Wing taking part in their DofE Silver Assessed and Gold Practice Expeditions. The cadets got to test the reliability of their waterproofs to help prepare for their Gold assessed. At times they were pushed to their limits by the weather conditions but demonstrated true resilience and teamwork. Well done everyone.
