CFS visited 621 over the weekend 25th -26th September to examine 621 and awarded Excellant overall.

Central Flying School visit each squadron once a year to ensure that the Squadron is operating to standard. The CFS instructors check nearly all aspects of the flying operation, from personal log books and log sheets to supervision on the airfield as well as individual flying standards and instructional technique.

For the last two years 621 VGS has been awarded an “Excellent” overall and was the first Viking VGS to receive an Excellant in Flying Instruction. This year 621 VGS received an “Excellant” in four out of the five categories and achevied “Excellant” overall for the third year running.

The CFS report details a few areas that the squadron needs to improve on and no doubt these will be looked at and corrected in time for the visit next year to ensure that the squadron maintains the “Excellent” overall.
