First Time Flying

Article posted: Dec 16, 2013 by Sqn Ldr Pass

On Saturday 25 November Cadet Parker, Chambers and Kerr had the opportunity to get their first flying experience in a Glider.

644 VGS at RAF Syerston, welcomed all three on a Cold Bright day. Perfect conditions for Gliding with the wind being just right.

Each Cadet completed three take offs and landing and also got the chance for some hands on at the controls of the cockpit. The Cadets were said to very much enjoy the day and to put practice to the theory they had just previously learnt whilst undertaking their First Class Classifications.
