We have now had a full camp report from our cadets from camp. They had a fantastic time and a few of their activities included fieldcraft, abseiling, arms drill and flying in an RAF Chinook. Some amazing experiences and our cadets with summer camp places eagerly await their turn!

2523 continues to succeed with Sgt Vellacott completing a Senior NCO course covering advanced leadership and drill culminating in his silver leadership badge. Corporal Spall and Cadet Addison completed their bronze Cyber and Cadet Macnamara passed bronze radio. These are all fantastic skills for life and future employment.

We were lucky enough to visit the British Model Flying Association 100th Birthday event at Old Warden airfield. 8 Linton cadets got a private tour of the Shuttleworth Collection museum and demonstrations in drone racing, virtual reality drone flying and most impressive of all model rocketry. The cadets were even able to be on launch control and launch the rockets themselves. “It was great to be able to have a physical demonstration of rocketry.” Says Sgt Morris, “We have theoretical space training but seeing the rockets and launching them in person really makes the syllabus come to life.”.

We have an exciting schedule ahead including powered flying at RAF Cranwell. We look forward to sector field day where cadets have been training to compete in leadership, first aid, drill and more. Our jubilee parade practise is underway and we look forward to parading the union and squadron standards at several events over the coming months.
