On Monday 04 February the Squadron saw the formal passout parade for No 70 and 71 Recruit Flights. After a packed 6 – 8 months of training the cadets were posted into the main 2 Flights on the Sqn. Their training has consisted of learning about the ATC and RAF, Weapon Training, use of radios, Expedition Training, Drill, Sport, and Airmanship, and having the opportunity to take part in powered flying and rifle shooting, and complete a recruit training weekend at Crowborough Training Camp.
Their proud parents watched a drill display by the cadets and were then given a presentation of what their young people had achieved and the opportunities open to them in the future by Fg Off Nick Harvey and the Flight Commander CWO Finlay Bliss. The combined Flights were then marched onto the Sqns Final Parade and the cadets welcomed to the main Sqn by the OC, Sqn Ldr Jerry Godden, and then posted to their new Flights, where a bright future awaits them.
