Come gliding - join an Air Training Corps unit

January 2015 Cadet Activities

23 Sqn (ATC)CDTSGT Josh Denton with his "Top Student" award


Cadets from around New Zealand took part in Bush-craft, Aviation and Maritime training activities during this summer month. CDTSGT J. Denton is an example of the standards achieved. He achieved "solo" status on the recent National Power Flying course and also gained "Top Student". The latter meant he has won a 2 hour session in an Air NZ Boeing simulator as well as a trans-Tasman flight with that company.

Other cadets succeeded in meeting demanding bush-craft skills including navigation and river-crossing as well as team leadership tasks. Selected members of our Sea Cadet Corps completed a rigorous training regime at the Navy's Whangaparaoa training centre, qualifying to command crews in their SCC Units' sailing craft.
