Certainly something to talk about at this 700 day mark…
Following the statement to Parliment on the future of the VGS movement we now know that 621 VGS will continue as one of the 11 VGS to remain. In the statement it is written that 621 VGS will move to RNAS Merryfield in Somerset.
RNAS Merryfield is bigger – but we will have to share. The airfield is currently used extensively by helicopters from RNAS Yeovilton.
Whilst we welcome this news, our thoughts are with our colleagues whose squadrons will be disbanded. These VGS will have inspired many thousands of cadets to want to become pilots, and many more to realise their potential to achieve goals higher than they imagined. Celebrate well your squadrons achievements and join us, if you can, in ensuring that there remains a chance for Air Cadets to experience flight in a glider.
