RAF Cadets Flying Experience
On 9 November, 11 RAF cadets traded a Thursday at school for a fantastic day at RAF Benson for Air Experience Flying. After we had adorned ourselves in flying suits and watched the safety video we all practised our safety drills, which rather alarmingly involved diving over the wing. After this, we were kitted out in our parachutes and helmets, met our pilots and headed up into the skies. When we were used to the feeling of flying in the light aircraft, our pilots performed some aerobatics. Some cadets even flew loop-the-loops themselves. Owing to the fact the weather conditions were on our side, all the cadets were able to fly and I am sure everyone will agree it was a splendid day out. Many thanks to Sqn Ldr Armitage for organising a great day.
