Former Plt Off RAFVR(T) Jason Rueben left 241 Sqn in October of 2006. However he wasn’t deserting the cause;he was joining the regular RAF as a commissioned officer!
At the end of May Jason passed out as a Pilot Officer at RAF College Cranwell, Lincolnshire have successfully completed his gruelling Inital Officer Training over the past 8 months.
The former Cadet Warrant Officer has now achieved a life long ambition to join the RAF and moves onto professional training at the School of Fighter Control at RAF Boulmer.
However, he has keep his contacts with the Sqn and has become our second official Service Helper, and we hope to see him as a regular feature on Sqn trips to the Lakes.
Sqn Ldr Jerry Godden attended his pass out parade and said "This was a proud day for Jason and I was honoured to be invited to see him on parade. This shows what an individual can do if they put their mind to it and rise to the challenge!"
The Sqn also has several other former members undergoing inital training in the Armed Forces and we look forward to them passing out as well.
