Three weekends down, one more yet to come. But before this on Wednesday 22nd May Cdt Sgt Singh Hayer, Cdt Cpls Johnson & Khawaja & Cdt Yeates attended Greater Manchester Wing presentation evening at University Barracks. This was a great opportunity for the cadets to meet and mingle with the higher ranks in the Wing.

Last weekend of May saw 2 cadets and a corporal leave to go on Operation Hunter III, ran by 317 (Leigh) Squadron, the week long camp was set to be full of fieldcraft, leadership tasks and lots more.

Those cadets who had recently turned over 18 attended the wing lead Basic Adult Staff Instructors Course at University Barracks, its content cantered for the role you have and responsibility you gain once you’re over 18.

Air cadets like to see themselves as different to your average teenager. If you ask them ‘What did you do last weekend?’ the answer won’t be, slept all day or played Xbox all day, it’ll be something like; ‘I went Clay pigeon shooting’, ‘I was developing my leadership skills’ or ‘I was representing the region playing sports!’ You’d be amazed by the amount of things you can do as an air cadet and being part of the Air Training Crops is an amazing way to fill your spare time.

So what are you waiting for? Join your local Squadron today!
