3 Cadets from 1461 Wigston have taken to the air for the first time. The 3 young aviators visited 643 Volunteer Gliding Squadron at RAF Syerston and took to the skies in Viking winch launched gliders. They were shown the basic controls of the aircraft and even took control of the glider and piloted it themselves.

Cdt Twigg said “ I had an amazing day and particularly loved the way the gilder went from 0-40mph in 2 seconds! I learned how to help launch the aircraft and can’t wait till i can come back again”
