Barnsley squadron gets new commissioned officer


Cadet force adult volunteer Hannah Banks has been selected for promotion to the rank of commissioned officer and is now Acting Pilot Officer in 148 (Barnsley) Squadron.

Hannah has served as a non-commissioned officer in the squadron for several years but decided she wanted to progress through the Cadet Force Adult Volunteer career path and applied for a commission.


She attended the Officer and Aircrew Selection Centre at Royal Air Force Colleage Cranwell where she underwent leadership and teamwork assessment as well as an intensive interview, before being awarded her promotion.

Hannah is pictured left with Squadron Leader Andy Williams who said: “We are very proud to have another quality member of staff progressing through their CFAV career and achieving such success.”
