Linton now have both wing and regional approval to return to face to face training when the lock down is lifted and the National Youth Agency guideline is amber.
Cadets continue to achieve through our classification syllabus. Upon completion of the Master Cadet award we issue a BTEC Level 2 in Aviation Studies. This is alongside those cadets completing their BTEC Level 2 in Teamwork and Personal Development. There is still plenty of lockdown success to be had yet!
The squadron Civilian Committee are poised to purchase two brand new, high tech, squadron “quad” drones. This opens up another stream of air minded training achievable locally with a syllabus of ground school and drone piloting techniques.
The drones come alongside the additional first aid training aids purchased in 2020 - the Civilian Committee is committed to enhance all aspects of cadet training ahead of our return, giving cadets access to the latest equipment and resources.
With face to face training to resume soon, our first priority will be to get current cadets back up to speed and to finish the BTEC and Duke of Edinburgh awards outstanding from 2020. Once this is complete we will be looking to invite new cadets to the squadron.
If you are 12 years old and in year 8, or know someone that would like to join, please contact me on the details below and see www.2523linton.co.uk.
