Simulator Training

Posted on October 13th, 2018 by WO Lyons

The first step for most of our cadets in their theory and practical flight training is a visit to the Part Task Trainers. On the 3rd November a number of cadets were up early to travel to MoD St Athan in Wales to undertake either their Blue or Bronze ATP. This involved the cadets visiting the gliding squadrons and undertaking instruction on the simulators with qualified pilots. They also cover basic principles of flight in classroom lessons. Two cadets undertook their first steps, completing the Blue ATP which introduces the basics. Once they complete a follow on flight they are awarded their blue wings. Another two cadets undertook their bronze ATP, which follows blue. Once they complete two flights they are eligible for their bronze wings.
