Barnsley Air Cadets news Round-up


Cadets Elle Bloomer, left, and Sophie Kirk are among members of Barnsley Air Cadets who have been training for their bronze aviation wings.

The pair joined their squadron at RAF Syerston in Nottinghamshire to try their hands in a flight simulator, learning how to handle the controls and to jump with a parachute.

“We had a great time and I would definitely recommend it,” said Elle.

Cadets from the squadron have been achieving a number of successes.

Cadet Sergeant Jamie Butler and Corporal Courtney Bray have both been awarded their Method of Instruction lanyard which means they can now teach other cadets. 

Cadet Harry West and Cadet Thomas Yates have passed their bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Ten cadets from the squadron have also completed their leadership training, earning themselves a Blue Leadership Badge.
