Cadets see Merlin

 

 

On Wednesday 18 Feb, cadets from the Squadron attended RAF Benson to experience the thrills of Air Experience Flying on the Grob Tutor trainer at 6 AEF. However, the English weather intervened and the cloud was too low to fly.  CI Trevor Roberts then sprang into action and was able to arrange a last minute visit to 78 Sqn, aslo based at Benson, who fly the Merlin Battlefield Support Helicopter. The cadet were able to see the helicopter up close and talk to some of the aircrew who fly the newest helicopter in the RAFs inventory, giving them an insight into its role and use on current operations.
