Warton radar

Can any of you tell me what the Primary and Secondary Surveillance Radars are at Warton? I believe the PSR is a Marconi S511 but no idea on the SSR.

Spoons 1v1(+1)

Spoons is a simple dueling game where A challenges B to a game of whalloping the other on the head with a big spoon held in the mouth, each with eyes closed and kneeling. As is only fair A, the...

Supervision

The case above is highly relevant to this thread, as the individual above was applauded and promoted for being a 'whistleblower' at 616. He reported his CO, CFI and duty instructor to the centre,...

Achievement of the Aim

I don't think the changes are anything to do with ordering people about or training-day pay, rather post Haddon-Cave perceptions. The loss of three cadets in two AEF accidents was a watershed,...

Cadet Training via service clubs

Corp Clott, as an ex-RAF Flying Club secretary, I couldn't imagine anything worse than 'Get 2FTS to administer Air Cadet flying through these clubs'. Not only would he have the same negative impact...

Congratulations to Adam

Marvelous news to read the Northern Echo story and hearty congratulations to Adam and the staff at 1507. Time was that the draw from the 647 VGS was so strong that OC 1507 decided to ban any cadet...

Selection and Maintenance of the Aim

You can't knock success. As a tax payer, ex-Vigi instructor and a member of one of the 14 ex-VGS, I would like to complement the Commandant of 2 FTS on his new HQ and the fortitude he has shown in...

T102

I couldn't work out how to start a new thread, so used this one as it mentioned T93 etc on page 1.

Joint Service Cadets

I read through the Winter edition of 'Air Cadet' magazine this week, which included cadets bobbing about on TS Royalist and others winning a skill at arms competition. As the only flying seems to...

The end justifies the means

Imagine a desired strategic aim that stated: Post-Haddon-Cave and the loss of three cadets, the MOD can not have the PR risk of civilian volunteers flying RAF-associated young people in Mil Reg...

Canopy Assistance

A and C.

No need for the complexity of compressed air. The Chippy has a small canopy assits panel that aids the pilot to slide back the lid at high speed.

Vigilant VGS official video

Does anyone have a copy of the official Vigilant VGS orientation video? I presume there was a Viking equivalent.

I will have a few beers, watch it and cry myself to sleep

Delivering the task is not the issue

I think you (we) are all missing the point, DU. Not flying cadets is a good thing in the modern safety environment. 'As Low As Possible' sets an even higher standard than 'As Low As Reasonably...
