The Wethersfield Opportunity

Oopscheck, chevvron,

Now the context has changed (i.e. Wethersfield is staying open) then there is the opportunity to continue to use Wethersfield for a VGS (which would not have to be 614 VGS by the way; it could quite easily be another, unused VGS 'numberplate'). This could occur for a good many years and at very modest cost compared with other Air Cadet infrastructure projects (VGS and non-VGS related). This would represent a great return on investment not only for cadets but also for the taxpayer. Gliding at Wethersfield (with a reset NOTAM) could resume almost immediately.

Now that things have changed, it would be fairly straightforward for people to work together to achieve this, and with very little effort given that Wethersfield operated a VGS (614 VGS) for about 30 years, up until the first day of the 'pause' in Air Cadet gliding on 17 April 2014.
