AIR EXPERIENCE FLYING FOR MARCH AIR CADETS

Five air cadets from 1220 (March) Squadron Air Training Corps went to RAF Wyton on Saturday morning for a flight in a Grob Tutor, which is the primary trainer of the Royal Air Force.

The cadets had been looking forward to flying – for some the first time with the Air Cadet Organisation. During an Air Experience Flight (AEF), cadets are encouraged to learn about the controls and instruments of the aircraft, and are invited to take control of the aircraft; sometimes they are able to perform aerobatics themselves.

Each of the five cadets 30 minutes in the air, which is sufficiently long enough for them to navigate to and fly over their own houses in March.

Corporal Joe Goodman said. “Although it was my third time flying, it was just as great as the first time.”
