With Air Cadet Gliding still paused, members of staff have been finding different ways of keeping busy, from hiking in Brecon Beacons, cruising the canals to moving house.

Our Deputy Chief Flying Instructor, Flt Lt Adam Clarke, has not only been keeping his flying skills toned in the Tiger Moth he has a share in, but he also had the chance to fly a Spitfire.

“The day consisted of a morning of ground school learning about the Spitfire’s systems and an afternoon flight. It is an absolute delight to fly, very sensitive in pitch and incredibly crisp yet smooth in roll, but then we were travelling at 300 mph !” he said.

The first aim of the Air Cadets is to “Promote and encourage a practical interest in aviation and the Royal Air Force among young people”, something which 621 VGS works hard to achieve. Therefore it is no wonder several of our current and ex-members of staff are building careers in the aviation industry or Armed Services.

Today we congratulation CGI Johnny Beech on achieving his Commercial Pilots License.
