Cadets, staff and Cadet Jofli Bear have all attended annual camp at RAF College Cranwell, the home of officer training within the RAF.

Eight cadets from 1188 (Coalville) Squadron along with Flying Officer Rebekah Harrison, and Cadet Jofli bear all went to camp at RAF College Cranwell last week.

The cadets took part in lots of activities including flying, a visit to Ferry Meadows County Park for orienteering, canoeing and rafting, a visit to Newark Air Museum , sports, swimming and section visits to several of the units based at RAF College Cranwell including the Police Dog Section.

Some of the cadets were also fortunate enough to be flown in a Kingair aircraft which is used as a training aircraft for pilots who go on to fly multi engine aircraft such as the Hercules.

Flying Officer Harrison said, “It was an enjoyable camp with lots of varied activities. I am sure the cadets have made some friends for life.”

Cadet Corporal Hargadon said “there were lots of highlights on camp, I enjoyed doing aerobatics in a Grob Tutor, visiting the fire section and winning the rafting race.”
