Awards and smiles all round tonight at Ely Squadron with three sets of blue ATP wings for Cadets Ethan Saggers, Cameron Hudson and Finn Elcombe for passing the first phase of their Aviation Training.
The cadets completed their basic Airmanship training and then moved on to the Part Task Trainer simulator course at 614 Volunteer Gliding Squadron.
In order to qualify for their wings they also had to complete a “flying lesson” in an RAF Grob Tutor Training Aircraft where they were given control of the Aircraft by the instructing RAF Pilot.
The cadets had to demonstrate thier understanding of how to control the aircraft. Having mastered the basics the cadets now look forward to further in flight instruction opportunities as they work towards thier Bronze ATP Wings.
Also this evening we presented Cadet Lewis Brazier with his first class cadet classification certificate for passing his basic training.
Well done all 👍
