Prestigious Flying Scholarship for 234 Sergeant

Cdt Sgt Craggs (18), has been selected for the prestigious John Cunningham Flying Scholarship of 13 hours flying with Tayside Aviation in Dundee. He is one of only four cadets in the organisation to be selected this year, and he was put forward because of his proven ability demonstrated in flying and gliding. Sgt Craggs attained his “G1” wings last year, which means he can already take up passengers and teach other cadets how to fly. This scholarship is a opportunity to take his knowledge and skills to the next level. The course starts in August, and if he excels during this then he may be given the opportunity to obtain a Light Aircraft Pilot’s Licence.
