On Monday 15 June Cdt Kipp McTavish and Cdt Jordon Farquhar were presented with badges and certificates after qualifying as First Class Cadets. The First Class Cadet syllabus consists of 8 different subjects and is the first step in the cadet classification training structure.
As Air Cadets we don't always stick to activities in the air. During the first week in June Sgt Greenall and Cpl Marke spent a week aboard the STV Alba Explorer learning how to crew a sailing ship whilst cruising the West Coast of Scotland. Both cadets were awarded RYA Competent Crew Certificates. Well done!
