Staff from 621 VGS spent the weekend at Little Rissington, home of 637 VGS, this weekend to start the mandatory ground school training required prior to the VGS to restarting operations. Many of the ground school subjects require annual or bi-annual refresher training. Human Factors, Emergency Egress Drills, Soaring Protocol amongst some of the items covered over the two days.
Some of our staff have also restarted their return to flying. Sqn Ldr D Woolcock, Flt Lt T Webb and Flt Lt N Blake have visited RAF Syerston for a week and flown. Flt Lt T Webb, Flt Lt B House and CGI D Melling-Poyser have also spent time their learning about the new Skylaunch Winch.
With the move from Hullavington underway, several staff and some VGS friends have been helping box up the squadron kit to store over the next few months whilst we await our new home. Four of the five aircraft have been moved to Little Rissington to await their turn in the recovery process.
2017 is going to be exciting!
