It still is, RAF Kenley is about to start ATC Gliding(Viking) operations again, It just happens to also coincide with the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, and Kenley is the only Cadet Gliding field to have been part of that. 615 VGS (formerly 615 Gliding School ) has been at Kenley since inception, and is the only reason that the airfield has survived as long. The Air Cadets have a proud and historic location that can now serve the 'Cadet rich' area of London and the S-east again.
