Cadets from 2146 (South-East Bristol), 290 (Weston Super Mare) and 914 (Glastonbury) Squadrons visited us on Saturday.

The cadets were first briefed on the role of the VGS, the reasons behind the current “Pause” and the current plans for return to flying. They were then shown round one of the Viking gliders, getting the chance to have a sit in the aircraft too.

As well as the aircraft, the cadets were shown around the Tractor, Winch, Launch Point Caravan and Glider Trailer, some of which the cadets don’t usually get to see.

It was great to be able to tell them that the first flight in the recovery process had taken place the previous day too!
