Flying

 

Grob Tutor

Dreamweaver CS3The Grob Tutor (right) is the main aircraft that is used by the Air Training Corps to provide cadets and staff with the opportunity to fly.

There are 12 Air Experience Flights (AEF's) located around the UK that cater for all the cadets in the corps.

The Grob Tutor is a two-seater aircraft and is piloted by an RAF pilot .

Initially a cadet will be shown the basics and principles of flying, but after a few visits a cadet will begin to get more involved in the flying of the aircraft.

As a cadet becomes more experienced they may decide to apply for a Flying Scholarship Award .

 

 

Opportunity Flights

Dreamweaver CS3Occasionally, often when cadets are away on camp, they get the opportunity to fly in RAF aircraft.

This may be an overseas flight in a Hercules or Tristar or if their lucky possibly one of the RAF's fast jets.

 

 

 

Flying Scholarships

Dreamweaver CS3These are awarded across the wing several times each year, and enable a cadet to learn how to fly at their local Flying School.

The award takes them within touching distance of gaining their Private Pilot's Licence

It is possible for a cadet to be able to fly an aircraft before they are even allowed to drive, since Flying Scholarships can be applied for at the age of 16.

 

 

Navigation Award
