A first Air Experience Flight for 5 of Lewisham’s newest cadets today at RAF Benson.
2 of our cadets wrote about their Air Experience Flight.
One cadet said of their Air Experience Flight:
“1921 Squadron gave me the oportunity to fly a Grob Tutor aircraft. A great experience! A sensational feeling and all because I’ve decided to join 1921 Lewisham Squadron. I now feel inspired to continue with a career in which I would need all the skills I have learned here. I can’t wait to repeat that magical moment as soon as possible. First time I went flying and I was able to do aerobatics. I was also allowed to take control of the aircraft. Hopefully more people would be inspired to join the Air Cadets and be a part of these adventurous events.”
Another cadet said:
“Chances to go flying can sneak up on you and my first try I had less than a day’s notice. I had no idea how it would be or if I could even make time for it at home. But then I took a plunge into something most people would wish or want to try but can’t.Your everyday life is probably clutered up with timetakeing responsibilities but when you go on an air experience flight you feel distant from stress along with the ground. If you ever get to go to an airbase they will make you go and take a couple of stressful to remember safety procedures before you get in the plane. Once you get suited up and take off you actualy fell relieved. At one point the pilot might ask you if you want to do some aerobatics which most will accept or not and regret it.
The good thing about these types of experiences at air cadets you can ask if you want to do something.”
There you have it. 2 cadets who joined our squadron in January being introduce to what clearly seems to be a very life enhancing experience and a lot of fun.
