Market Rasen Air Cadet William Davidson has completed his Flying Scholarship, undertaking flight training with Tayside Aviation at Dundee Airport, flying the Grob 115D Heron over a two-week period.
“The course is designed to provide flying training and support cadets in the early stages of working through the syllabus for the Private Pilots License, potentially flying solo if circumstances permit,” said squadron commander Flt Lt Dave Smith.
Unfortunately, due to the weather, William didn’t manage to fly solo, but was tantalizingly close, completing 12 hours.
He hopes to consolidate this experience and continue flying to gain his license.
For youngsters aged 13 to 18, Market Rasen ATC meets at the Waterloo Street headquarters on Tuesdays and Fridays from 7pm to 9.15pm.
