RAF Air Cadets on Cambridge Gliding Club’s Flight Simulator

Ten No 1 Sector RAF Air cadets visited Cambridge Gliding Club at Gransden Lodge Airfield the last year on the Evening of 12th Sep.

They took part in STEM activities around how lift works on an aircraft wing, looked at the gliders in the hangar, listened to instructors talk about civilian gliding and best of all were given a short ‘flight’ in the club’s advanced flight simulator.

The 10 cadets were from 4F Ilford, 12F Walthamstow, 27F Chingford, 241 Wanstead & Woodford and 2324 Chigwell sqns. They were joined on the night with cadets from 105 Cambourne sqd.

This all helped with the process of cadets someday learning to fly.
