Flight Sergeant Joe Hammond of 209 (West Bridgford) Squadron cadet flying career has reached another milestone with the award of his Glider Pilot Wings. To complete this latest achievement Joe had to fly 15 solo flights in a Viking glider and another 45 flights with an instructor to gain experience and confidence.

Joe is very proud of his new wings and said ā€œIā€™m still working hard towards being able to instruct Cadets from other Squadrons to fly gliders.ā€
