CCF Ground Gliding School

The new Aviation Training Package (ATP) was available to eight RAF cadets on Saturday 15 September. This is situated at RAF Kenley and the facilities are concealed in a seemingly anonymous shipping container which actually contains a lecture room and gliding simulator.

The training package consisted of a ground training element followed by use of the gliding simulator to experience the flying conditions for taking off, a circuit around Kenley and landing again. The third part of the package is either RAF gliding or a flying lesson at 6AEF at RAF Benson, which cadets will undertake over several field days throughout the year. All cadets passed the course – congratulations to them all!
