Since joining the Air Cadets at 15 Luke rapidly progressed through all the Classifications and Ranks and also gained his G1 Glider Pilot Wings, 12 hr Flying Scholarship and Gold D of E award. Apart from his Squadron activities Luke has also been a Flight Staff Cadet at 643 VGS for several years finding himself flying and teaching his own cadets on some occasions.

OC 2070 Flt Lt Steve Mayoh-Smith said:-

“Luke has always had his sights firmly set on becoming a Pilot and I’m quite sure he will succeed, he has always said, ‘I don’t care what I get to Fly as long as I Fly’, he is a fantastic example of what can be achieved by joining the Air Cadets”
