2418 Take To The Virtual Skies…

On the 17th June, cadets from 2418 (Sherwood) Squadron attended a flight simulator day, at the squadron HQ. CI Ross from 470 (Falkirk) Sqn in Scotland, came to help the cadets for the day.

12 cadets took part in the day, learning basic flying skills and also taking part in navigational flights. The navigational side consisted of finding websites to help us attain information such as: the weather, runway condition, and other aircraft. This gave us an understanding of what you need to be aware of should you actually go flying in the real world.

All cadets thoroughly enjoyed the day, and thank CI Ross for taking up his time in travelling to England, to assist us.
Cpl Mann added “I really enjoyed the day, and will look out for the next flight sim day!”
