Formation Flying!

Cadet Evans who joined 2071 (Stamford) Squadron at the start of the year has recently passed his First Class assessments with Distinctions in every category. Of his experience Cadet Evans said “I was really surprised when I was selected from the other cadets on the Squadron to be put forward even to be considered. I was really excited when I found out that I had been selected by Wing Commander Dickinson to take part. It was a really fantastic day and I really enjoyed seeing all of the aircraft and flying in the Hercules. I am looking forward now to taking the controls of a Grob Tutor the next time the Squadron goes flying.”
