A Busy Weekend

After the presentation evening the Sqn was busy Flying, Gliding and Shooting over the weekend of 10 – 12 December. On the Friday 12 cdts went flying at RAF Benson on the Tutor aerobatic trainer. Once the runway had been cleared of ice the flying commenced and the cadets where able to experience the thrills of taking control and aerobatics under the seasoned eyes of their RAF pilots. On the Saturday Cpl Hulbert, Cdt Gupta and Cdt Babur attended Weathersfield airfield to complete their Gliding Induction Course with 4 – 5 flights in the Viking Glider learning the rudiments of how to pilot the aircraft. On the Sunday cdts attended Ash Ranges to live fire the L98 Rifle, some for the first time after training the week before at the Sqn. Although cold, the cadets didnt let this stop them from achieving the aims of the shoot.
