We have some exciting plans for the rest of term and into Term 2.
Aviation studies have begun for the entire unit (new cadets included!). Cadets will learn the theory of flight and aviation, with the more advanced cadets learning how to navigate and plot flight paths. This will culminate for everyone in flights with Under Officer Leslie who is trainee pilot. It will be the ultimate application of the theory lessons we do at the unit.
So make the most of this opportunity to really appreciate the flying!
Starting the 8th November the SQN will be holding Open nights for all those interested in joining Air Cadets. Visit our Facebook events to register for the open day and our recruit training program. https://www.facebook.com/18sqn/events/
