Two young Air Cadets from 2461 (Sawston) Squadron are celebrating after reaching the highest grade in their Air Cadet classification.

(From l-r Cadet Sergeant Katherine Hill and Cadet Corporal Jack Sawcer)

Cadet Sergeant Katherine Hill, aged sixteen from Stapleford and Cadet Corporal Jack Sawcer, aged sixteen from Sawston, have both achieved their Master Air Cadet classification following a structured series of aviation, engineering and navigation training at the Squadron.   

By completing the training, which has included subjects such as; rocketry, pilot navigation, radio and RADAR, aircraft knowledge and air power, both cadets have also completed the BTEC Certificate in Aviation Studies.  The BTEC is the equivalent of two additional GCSEs and is free to all Air Cadets.

They are now working towards completing their Cadet Method of Instruction course which entitles them to wear the coveted yellow instructor lanyard.

Cadet Corporal Sawcer said “Completing my training is a great feeling, I can now pass on my knowledge to others and work towards gaining my yellow lanyard.  It was an interesting and fun way to gain two extra GCSEs.”

Civilian Instructor Kieran Eusden added “It is great to see cadets completing their classification training and being able to put something back into the organisation.”

2461 (Sawston) Squadron meet on Monday and Thursday evenings at our headquarters on Hayfield Avenue.  For more information about joining as either a cadet or member of staff please contact 01223 834585 (Monday and Thursday Evenings) or email oc.2461@aircadets.org
