30 Cadets attended a practical leadership weekend at Crowborough Training Camp, living in Pippingford Park Trg Area in spartan conditions. The cadets learnt to live out under tent shelters, cook in field condition and learnt the importance of personal administration skills, as well as taking part in a Night Navigation exercise and various command and leadership task. In spite of the torrential downpour on the Friday night the weekend was blessed with fair weather.
The photo shows some of the cadets towards the end of the exercise.
4 Cadets attended a Gliding Induction Course at Weathersfield Airfield on the Saturday and successfully completed the course with up to 5 launches in a Viking Glider, and can now go onto their Gliding Scholarship. Congratulations to:

and finally 2 of the Staff attended 27F Squadron Dinning In Night to continue to network with other Sqns and their Staff (and have a very social evening in the course of this task!)
