Recently the squadron has been getting involved in Radio Controlled Flying thanks to a kind donation of equipment from the Regional Aerospace Officer CI Colin Nicol. We have also been very fortunate to welcome an experienced RC Flyer to the squadron with the transfer of CI Richard Blanski from Grangemouth Sqn. CI Blanski is part of the Regional RC Flying Team and brings a wealth of knowledge and skills to 859!
