A fantastic set of results in recent classification exams saw an impressive nine cadets awarded new badges on parade.
At Leading, good results in Basic Navigation training â€“ ably steered by WO John Ingram and his cadet instructors â€“ meant six new Leading Cadets. Well done to Cdt Altaykan, Hnana, Messenger, Murphy, Povey and Wilcox on their success. Congratulations too to Cadets Adedeji, Dyson, Turner and Watson for good results in the first part of their training! This success bodes well for the forthcoming expedition season!
At Senior, Aircraft Navigation â€“ piloted by CI Luke McDougall â€“ saw success for Cpl Ben Langford and Cdt Philip Blake, who moved up to Senior status. Cdt Carroll also passed the exam, and will complete his Senior in November!
Finally, Cpl Rebecca Fogarty achieved a great result in Air Navigation to complete the first of her Staff Cadet exams. Finishing his second, and earning a BTEC in Aviation Studies (equivalent to 2 GCSEs) in the process, Cpl Raphael Blake is to be congratulated for his commitment and determination! We now look forward to his Wing Staff interview so he can qualify as a Staff Cadet and obtain his coveted lanyard!
