Promotion Well Deserved for two Air Cadets

Two young people, both members of 51 (Orton) Squadron Air Cadets, have received well deserved promotion to the rank of Corporal.

Conner Wells (15), and Andrew Goodman (15) have worked hard to be promoted to the rank of Corporal and will now take on additional responsibilities within squadron including leadership and learning how to instruct their peers in adventurous training skills.  Both Cadets have been with the ATC, and 51 (Orton) Squadron since they turned 13 and their dedication and skills has allowed them to progress as well as stand out.

Cpl PromotionFlt Lt Andy Mason said “It is always nice to promote cadets, and reward members of the core for their achievements, this promotion however, is extra special and it is the first promotion I have awarded at this squadron”

There are many opportunities available to young people of 13 to 18 years through the Air Cadets including the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and Cadet Vocational Qualification worth 4 GSCE’s.
