Well done to Bradley and Emily who have both been awarded a significant amount of money from the Royal Aero Club Trust to help with their progress over the coming season. Bradley’s I expect will be to further his cross country flying and Emily’s to complete bronze and cross country endorsement! Well done to both.
Make sure you keep an eye out for when the bursary applications open again as there is a lot of money out there which people are willing to give to up and coming young pilots to further their skills (especially handy when you get to cross county endorsement which normally involves an expensive trip in the motor glider).
Congratulations to Sam who went solo, who also caught a thermal and got a decent flight out of it!
So, the new cadets have now been inducted and now, as per tradition, here are the mugshots!
