Yet another solo flight for 138

Article posted: Oct 16, 2009 by Sqn Ldr Wilson

September 09 Cadet Sergeant Erica Young took her first solo flight, the aircraft being an ex ATC Falke (Venture) G-BVKK.
Her achievement followed on from being awarded blue wings with 644 VGS at RAF Syerston, further training took place at the Buckminster gliding club Saltby Airfield near Grantham.

Erica, who has now achieved numerous solo flights since her first flight, stated that she intends to continue her training to NPPL level although her university education may slow progress a little.
Sgt. Young is transferring to 1869 squadron nr. Middlesborough University.

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Erica on her achievement and wish her all the best for the future from everyone at 138.
