Today Cadets from 1304 chippenham squadron enjoyed a brilliant day helping out at Grittelton plant fair assisting with the car parking, stall holders and even managing their own recruitment stand.
On Saturday 20th May a few cadets and staff from 149 Poole ATC climbed aboard HMS Puncher at Bulwark Quay during the Poole Maritime Festival.They went for a short cruise around the quay during which they got a tour around the vessel.
This was a brilliant experience and fun was had by all
During August 2016 Cdt Jones went on a week-long course to achieve his Civilian Gliding Wings at Aston Down Gliding Club. Cdt Jones said “I am pleased to be the first to get these Wings but it didn’t come without it hard work”.
The weeklong course for Cdt Jones consisted of flying every day, consolidating his previous knowledge, which aided him in his course, and the expanding it on how to deal with launch failures and spins. During his course he had the opportunity to fly with an ex-vampire pilot, which he said was a great experience. But his overall high point of the course was being able to fly solo for the first time.
Completing the course Cdt Jones feels that would he has grown in confidence and has also helped him deal with stressful situation better and with exams coming up this would become useful. Also this has got him one step closer to his dream of becoming a VGS Staff Cadet.
Cdt Jones would like to thank The Caroline Trust for the generous grant of £250 towards his course.
