Commandant Air Cadets Weekly Updates

3rd April Update______________________________________________________________________________
This is my last update before post Easter annual leave and its slightly shorter than usual as it was a short week. That said, this job always manages to squeeze lots into the diary so there's always something to say. 

The week was dominated by my attendance at the No 5 Qualified Aerospace Instructors Course Graduation. This took place at RAF Linton-on-Ouse and brought together staff and students from across the Corps, with one course running at Boscombe Down, the other at Linton, and culminating in the two coming together for the final week. 

I attended the last 2 formal presentations - one on Air Power in Op Herrick and the other on Flight Simulation. I was genuinely amazed by the quality of the presentations and congratulate all staff and cadets on a significant achievement. This course is extremely challenging and requires real commitment and dedication. 

The Graduation dinner at RAF Linton-on-Ouse Officers' Mess was a wonderful way to mark the graduates' success and we were privileged 
to have AVM Brecht, Chief of Staff Capability, as our Guest of Honour.

I will be watching out for the blue lanyards as I travel around the Corps and I encourage all of you aviation and aerospace fans to seriously consider applying for this course if you get the chance.

I hope everyone had a Happy Easter!
