A PERSHORE trio were flying high recently after taking to the skies in an RAF training aircraft.

Three local Air Cadets from 233 (Pershore) Squadron part of the Air Training Corps are on cloud nine after the event which even saw them take control of the aircraft during their flight.

Cadets Serra Caunt, Jay Cosnett and Megan Heesom flew in an RAF Grob Tutor T1 aircraft alongside an RAF instructo and Serra said: “This was an amazing experience, I really enjoyed it and I’m looking forward to more flying in the future with my squadron.”

Air Cadets follow an Aviation training syllabus which allows them to fly in many different RAF aircraft with the end goal of gaining their Gold Wings and being able to fly solo. Many cadets can achieve his before they are able to drive a car on their own.

Officer Commanding Flight Lieutenant Rebecca Pritchett said; “This is an example of the many successes of our cadets and we’re all looking forward to further achievements.”

Flying is one of the many activities air cadets take part in, in supervised and safe conditions. Other activities include shooting, adventure training, fieldcraft and sport.
