High Fliers

Two Cadets of 1406 Squadron ATC have reached amazing heights of achievement at the same time! Sgt Georgia Davey recently passed the Air Cadet Pilot Training Scheme and Sgt Robert Burchell, passed the Air Cadet Pilot Navigator Training Scheme for the ATC.

Sgt Georgia Davey, from Bourne Grammar School, completed practical and ground school training, passed an Air Law exam before completing her solo flying in under 10 hours in a Grob G115D2 Heron light aircraft at Tayside Aviation in Dundee, Scotland to be awarded her Air Cadet Pilot Scheme ‘wings’ plus her flying hours count towards a private pilot’s license.

Sgt Robert Birchall, from Spalding Grammar School, completed ground schools, flight planning exercises and 8 hours of flying sorties over the York Moors, Humber and North Lincolnshire in Grob Tutors flying from RAF Church Fenton, North Yorkshire. His final planned navigation sortie was to RAF Cranwell, Lincolnshire and back. He passed the course with Distinction to collect his Air Cadet Pilot Navigator Wings, a real achievement.
