Cadets Take to the Skies

Four students from our RAF unit had a golden opportunity for a unique flying experience this week.

Liviu Stanciu, James Mathews, Nade Kiryakova and Charissa Kwok travelled to the RAF Benson airbase in Oxfordshire, where they were briefed, kitted up and introduced to the RAF Pilots on duty. They each spent nearly 30 minutes inside the cockpit and were in control of the Grob Tutor 115 plane, trying out various manoeuvres in the air. They were allowed (when safe to do so) to use their phones to capture the scenic beauty of the countryside below. A fantastic day was had by all and it was an experience none of them will ever forget!
