In early October Whitby 740 and Scarborough 739 squadrons attended a joint activity weekend at the North Regional Activity Centre located at RAF Linton-on-Ouse near York.
The attendance consisted of 18 cadets (9 from each squadron) and 5 adult staff. During the weekend they took part in many fun whilst, educational activities.
These activities included:
Netball (boy’s included) at the stations gymnasium facilities.
A flight in the Grob Tutor T1.
Whilst waiting for their flights they had the opportunity to fly a Tucano T1 - the RAF’s fast jet trainer.
They enjoyed some team building activities using a Mobile Team Activity Insights kit which promotes both leadership, teamwork and initiative skills some of the key training the Air Training corps aims to provide.
Finally, they enjoyed some social time with some games of ten pin bowling where the competition was fierce - particularly among the staff, and a trip to the Yorkshire Air Museum.
In the end the cadets and staff found that it was a very successful weekend where they enjoyed some wonderful experiences and hopefully also made some new friends from each squadron.
