(L to R) Corporals David Lakin, Scott Mably and Dan Mably proudly show off their new Instructor Cadet landyards.

Three Cadets of 631 (Maesteg) Squadron Air Training Corps  have qualified as Instructor Cadets, the highest training classification available to Air Cadets.

Qualitying as an Instructor Cadet has taken them from  new recruits as Second Class Cadets, through First Class, Leading, Senior, and Staff Cadet classification to where they are today as Instructor Cadets.

The final step to qualification as Instructor Cadets was to attend a Cadet Method of Instruction Course at Llanelli followed by preparing and delivering a lesson on an ATC related subject of their choice. The lessons were presented to other cadets of 631 Squadron  and  Squadron Leader Gerry Lewis, Deputy Commander No3 Welsh Wing  ATC, who was ensuring that their lessions were to the required standard .

Corporal Dan Mably’s subject was “Rules of the Air”  whilst his brother Scott, also a Corporal chose “Food for Expeditions”. Corporal David Lakin’s subject was “RAF Fairwood Common”.

Following the successful lessons Squadron Leader Lewis presented them with their coveted yellow landyards that sets them out as Instructor Cadets. Squadron Leader Lewis said “I’m very pleased to be able to award these cadets their yellow landyard as it recognises the hard work that they have put in”.

631 Squadron meet at Upper Street Maesteg on a Tuesday and Friday evening and welcome boys and girls aged 13 and over. The Squadron also welcomes adults who would like to help at the Squadron. Adults do not need to have previous ATC or RAF experience and can serve either in a uniformed or civilian instructor capacity.
