On Saturday 7th December, the current and previous intakes of Probationary Cadets visited the Yorkshire Air Museum as part of their First Class Training. The museum is on the former World War II RAF Bomber Command Station at Elvington, York. It houses 15 top class exhibitions and over 60 historic aircraft and vehicles.
The museum’s huge range of exhibits and collections spans the entire history of flight, from the early pioneers of aviation, through both world wars and on through the Cold War era, and a visit is an ideal way for the Cadets to support their studying of the History of Flight element of their First Class Training.
The visit was enjoyed by both Cadets and Staff and it will become a regular feature of the training programme.
On Friday 29th November, 10 cadets from 266 (Stockton) Squadron braved the cold for an evening of Go Karting. The cadets were given a safety brief by Teesside Karting before being let loose on the track. The cadets really enjoyed themselves and want to know when another visit can be arranged!
(Unfortunately, the Cadets were a bit too quick for my camera!)
On Thursday 14th November, Cadets from 266 (Stockton) Squadron raised over £250 for Children in Need by holding a sponsored bleep test. The Cadets also set up obstacle courses for each other, which were enjoyed by everyone. Well done to everyone involved and thank you to everyone who sponsored the Cadets.
