What a few months we’ve had! The Battle of Britain Duxford airshow was a huge success. Bringing together over 60 cadets and staff on our camp, including local squadrons. The car parking was a breeze and the show managed to avoid the rain on both days giving the cadets a chance to brush up on their aircraft recognition and photography skills.
With the darker evening for the September show we like to run a film night in the evening. We fired up the generator, broke out the projector, dished out the popcorn and kicked back and relaxed after a hard days work. Lots of new friends were made for staff and cadets alike. That’s what being back face to face is all about.
At time of writing Corporals Pevley and Newall are both on an annual Adventure Training camp along with CI Orton. Some fantastic mountain walking opportunities are underway and it looks like a fantastic time. I look forward on updating you with their achievements.
Corporal Vellacott and Cadet Spall both look forward to an annual camp at RAF Leeming in the coming weeks - so activities are back in full swing.
We continue to achieve on squadron with cadets working through the classification syllabus, practise for Remembrance Sunday parade and shooting events to take us through the winter months.
2523 will return to the air with our first Grob Tutor powered flying allocation in December.
If you are minimum aged 12 and in year 8, now is the perfect time to join our squadron.
