Back in September, Cadet Flight Sergeant Godfrey was successful in his application to the Air Cadet Pilot Scheme. This is a huge achievement in his personal cadet development and is something he has been ambitious to do from a young age.
The ACPS is based at Tayside Aviation, Dundee. Tayside Aviation operates over 15 aircraft at two sites at Dundee & Fife. It is also the largest light aircraft training organisation in Scotland. Tayside offers both private and commercial pilot training. It is the sole contractor to the Royal Air Force Air Cadet organisation.
Cadet Flight Sergeant Godfrey has been provided with a Light Aircraft Flying Scholarship to achieve solo standard. He flew in the Aquilla A211.
Once solo standard has been reached, cadets receive their gold RAFAC wings (something which no one currently possesses at 1082 Squadron.)
During his two week course, Cadet Flight Sergeant Godfrey stayed at the 4* Double Tree Hilton Hotel Dundee.
The ACPS is open to anyone in the Royal Air Force Air Cadets who are over the age of 16 with a grade 4/5 in English Language & Mathematics and a keen interest in aviation, however there are only 186 places available to Air Cadets per year.
Congratulations to Flight Sergeant Godfrey for completing this scheme with flying colours!
