Whilst the pause to Air Cadet flying continues, Central Gliding School at RAF Syerston have been able to borrow a K21 from the RAF Gliding Soaring Association to fly. They’ve now opened up the offer to some of the VGS staff and our Flt Lt Andy Rigsby (pictured in the front seat) was available to take them up on it. Andy in K21 at CGS K21’s are not new to Air Cadets gliding. In 1983 ten Schleicher ASK21s, named Vanguards, were purchased in order to start the conversion of Air Cadet gliding from wood to GRP aircraft. In the end the Air Cadets purchased one hundred Grob 103 Twin Acro’s – or as we call them the Viking TX1.
