The Sky’s The Limit

Christmas came early for cadets at 346 (Tynemouth) Squadron as they took delivery of a new flight simulator.

The state-of-the-art simulator allows cadets to experience virtual flying in aircraft such as the Grob tutor, which is the basic trainer used by the RAF.

Cadets undertook a number of bag packs to help raise money for the flight simulator, with the Squadron’s Civilian Committee sourcing additional funding. 

Simon Turner, a Civilian Instructor at 346 (Tynemouth) Squadron, said: “This is the first phase of a long-term plan to upgrade the Squadron and utilise new technology to enhance our cadets’ experience.”
