2070 Passing Out Parade

Article posted: Mar 18, 2012 by Sqn Ldr Pass

The squadron recently conducted a passing out parade for 10 of its probationer cadets.

A first class cadet will have received training in the following fields:

  • The ATC
  • The RAF
  • Initial Expedition Training
  • Fieldcraft
  • Drill, Dress and Expectations
  • Weapons Handling

The passing out parade was a great success with each and every cadet bringing at least one guest, some managing to bring three! The evening consisted of the CO’s talk to all of the parents whilst the cadets were undertaking last minute preparation for the parade. Tea and biscuits were served along with a small buffet provided by the Civilian committee.

During the passing out parade the new cadets were addressed by the Squadron Padre before making the air cadet promise and receiving their first class badge – Let’s hope they manage to sew it on in the correct place!
