On the 12th of February I attended an Aerospace Workshop hosted by North Region at RAF Linton-on-Ouse. The workshop begun with a quick introduction from all who attended. This mainly consisted of OCs and Squadron Aerospace Officers. As one of the only cadets who attended that day, I felt nervous voicing my opinions but soon felt at ease by the staff who attended.
The day consisted of looking at different key areas. These main areas of Squadron Training, Drones, Aircraft Modelling, Flight Simulators and the Air Operations Acquaintance Centre and the Regional Activity Centre. The comments made on these areas were really insightful and I was able to feedback to SGT Banks (our Flying and Gliding Officer) about the plans the region want to implement over the coming years.
A highlight from the day, was to talk to the Regional Aviation Officer, Wing Commander Mark Brayford, who talked to me in depth about what direction he wants the region to go in regarding aerospace. As a result, the idea and vision he wants to implement in the coming years has allowed me to come back to squadron to help improve aerospace and the way it can be used during lessons such as Principle of Flight and Aircraft Handling, and improve the way cadets will experience aerospace in the future.
Overall, I feel happy to have attended the workshop, to aid the squadron with the improvements with Flight Simulators and Squadron Training.
