47F Grantham Squadron has just spent a week on Anglesey as part of their annual adventure training week.
Twenty air cadets and five staff stayed at the Conway Centre on the Welsh island. During the week they took part in various adventure training activities including gorge walking, high ropes, night lines and a visit to the beach. During their week they spent a day at RAF Valley, the home of the Fast Jet training school, and the cadets saw first-hand how the pilots of tomorrow are trained and had a tour of Air Traffic control during an active flying period which gave them great views of the aircraft movements.
Officer Commanding 47F Flight Lieutenant Paul James said: “We had a great week, the weather was spot on and I can safely say it’s the first time I have been to Anglesey and not seen any rain. Both the staff and cadets pushed themselves this week and travelled well outside their comfort zone which helps to build team spirit. This is our second year in Anglesey and we have booked for next year already as this trip is so popular with the cadets and they get so much out of it”
