The Royal Air Force Cranwell Military Academy in the United Kingdom congratulated the 29th University Air Squadron (UAS) Officer Cadets who recently completed the inaugural Acting Pilot Officer workshop at RAF Cranwell.
To congratulate the 29th University Air Squadron (UAS) Officer Cadets, the Royal Air Force Cranwell also hosted a workshop facilitated by 6FTS trainers and attended by members of the 15 UAS from across the United Kingdom.
The workshop has been redesigned, now incorporating pre-course learning for the students whilst on their sqn, with a three-day residential period covering a range of leadership tasks. This culminated in the participants being presented with a Volunteer Reserve Acting Pilot Officer commission by Commandant RAFC Cranwell.
The workshop attendees will utilise their experience to mentor other UAS members within their sqn.
On completing their inaugural Acting Pilot Officer workshop at RAF Cranwell, the RAF Cadets also felt pride and pleasure. “When some of our cadets go on to study at university, it isn’t the end of their service in uniform,” they added.
They were proud to say that they have three ex-1094 Air Cadets wearing the uniforms of all three services at their Universities of choice in their spare time when not studying.
Ex-Flight Sergeant Luca Chadwick is an Acting Pilot Officer member of his University Air Squadron.
Ex-Flight Sergeant Abigail Stubbs wears his Majesties Royal Navy uniform as a Midshipman junior officer in her University’s Royal Naval Reserve unit.
Ex-Sergerant Liam West wears the uniform of The British Army as a 2nd Lieutenant in his University Officer Training Corps.
At last, The RAF Cadets are incredibly proud of all their “Squadron graduates” who left them and went on to fulfil their ambitions, whether in serving their country or their local community, whether they attend University, College or head off to the workplace. “we always enjoy seeing them when they return to visit us,” they added.
