Air cadets flying high
AIR cadets from Bassingbourn were flying high when they took part in gliding lessons.
The six cadets from the 2484 Bassingbour Squadron were given lessons at RAF Henlow in Bedfordshire by members of the 616 Volunteer gliding squadron.
Three of the cadets then flew with their commanding officer Pilot Officer Charles Rogers.
Pilot Officer Rogers said: “It is a privilege to give a young person their very first flying experience. The big smile on their faces at the end of the flight is the icing on the cake and it is why we volunteer to do it. To fly your own cadets is a bit special and a moment I won’t forget.”
Cadet Jade Warne, 13, said: “I was really nervous at first but when I landed I wanted to go back up straight away, it was amazing”.
