Cadets Adam Flack and Aline Johnson, Cadet Sergeant Scott Goodall and Civilian Instructor Mr Tim Kightly all went on the course held at RAF College Cranwell and came back experts at communications.

The course was spread over a weekend and taught the students to erect 5.4m masts and correctly operate the equipment. The course culminated in an exercise to practise using their newly acquired skills.

Cadet Adam Flack said, “I really enjoyed the course and feel confident about using these radios when we next go on camp”
