Sunday 17th May 

Today we hosted ATC (Air Training Corps)

No.48 District of Stratford Squadron

For some Flight experience

Instructors were used so the Cadets could book the flight time if so desired.

19 cadets and Officers were put through in around 3.5 hours

The weather was overcast and drizzly but improved slowly through the day



Everyone was mustering in the Club house for a briefing of the day and of course a thorough safety briefing.


Karl was the ATC go to man for the day. Here just back in from a Flight with Brian to check the conditions and warm SSF up before the flights began in earnest.


0900 Then they were off with Ground crew Mike assisting and also in charge of the Competition for a flight in the Mustang.

They had 5 questions to ask.

What does a Aileron do.
What does a Elevator do
what does a Rudder do
What does a Flap do
What direction do we take off



Shaun taking himself and SNW out for a warm up lap.


Check out the Rooster tails a SNW takes Off. Yes it was still a tad damp.



Takes more than that to stop us operating


Heading back in for his first Cadet.


Brian preparing his first Cadet


Shaun with his.


Both just about to blast off.


Bit of paper work to do.


Shaun away first

They look happy with there lot.


Now we have the Mustang and now we have a real Squadron Leader for our Mustang.

Squadron Leader Julie Woods Commanding Officer No.48 District of Stratford Squadron.

Mean while back at Flight Experience Brian still hard at it.

Getting down to the last cadets. Shaun & Mike assisting
