Four cadets from 1220 (March) Squadron took to the skies of Lincolnshire recently on an air experience flight. Corporal Alan Jackson (16) along with cadets Sky Brooks (15), Chloe Marden (15) and Tony Pepper (15) attended RAF Cranwell for the chance to put the air in air cadet.
Flying with 7 AEF in the Grob Tutor primary trainer the cadets were taken for a 30 minute flight where they learnt about the controls and handling characteristics of the aircraft before taking control themselves for some basic manoeuvres. There was then the opportunity to see just what the aircraft can do as their RAF instructor took them through some aerobatic moves much to the delight of them all.
Cadet Tony Pepper remarked “ you see aircraft doing aerobatics from the ground but to be in the plane as it loops the loop is just out of this world”.
