Summer Achievements

Cadets from the Sqn have been busy over the summer holidays with several NCOs attending Leadership and Gliding Courses. Sgt Raj attended a week long Leadership Course at the Army Cadet Training Centre at Frimley Park run by the Army Cadets. The week involved leadership with an Army slant including the use of blank ammunition and living in the field. Sgt Mandalia and Cpl Hulbert attended Leadership Courses at RAF Cranwell run by regular and volunteer staff with a heavy emphasis on practical leadeship and teamwork. All three NCOs did well on the courses, all passing with a Merit. FS Gachette and Cpl Cooney have been awarded their Blue Gliding Wings after passing gliding courses at Weathersfield Airfield inspite of some appalling weather! The OC, Sqn Ldr Godden said “it is great to see the NCOs getting the most out of being in the ATC by attending these courses which will stand them in good stead with their careers in the Corps and when they start work”.
