Thirteen new air Cadets have been enrolled at 209 (West Bridgford) Squadron. Each of then has completed a training programme over the last few months that has covered topics including the RAF, the ATC, flying, map reading and initial expedition training. They were all presented with their certificates and ‘First Class Cadet’ badges at 209 Sqns Summer Presentation Evening.

209s new Cadets are Freddie Filz, Tobias Hague, Jessica Newman, Georgia Pembleton, Abigail Pendergast, Lauren Robinson, Rosie Wildman, Olivia Joseph, Suzannah Horn, Oliver Hughes, Bronwen Pole, Ryan Ware and Shriya Yardi.

The Commanding Officer of 209 Sqn, Flight Lieutenant Steve Richards said “It always gives me a tremendous sense of pride to see so many new Cadets joining 209 Sqn. Many of our new Cadets have already put their names down to participate in so many activities including an adventure training camp we’re holding this weekend, a one week Summer Camp at RAF High Wycombe and flying at RAF Cranwell in August.”
