Congratulations to Ethan Hunking who was promoted to the rank of Cadet Warrant Officer this week. CWO is the highest rank that a cadet can achieve in the Air Training Corps and only the most able cadets are selected by the Wing Commander for the position.
CWO Hunking has had an outstanding cadet career to date. His achievements include
• Flying solo with the Air Cadet Pilot Scheme
• Achieving his Gold DofE Award
• Completing the demanding QAIC Course
• Appointed as Lord Lieutenants Cadet for Fife
• Selected to represent the ATC in the 2018 International Air Cadet Exchange to Canada
There are currently only 15 Cadet Warrant Officers and 35 units in South East Scotland Wing and we are lucky enough to have two here at 859 with CWO Hunking now joining CWO Greenall in the senior role. This is testament to the high standards and dedication shown by our cadets.
