CCF – Flying High!

The RAF Combined Cadet Force at Dame Elizabeth Cadbury is a fantastic addition to our wider curriculum.

Our new Cadets have this week piloted their first aeroplane, taking to the skies one by one at RAF Cosford.

Monday 20th January we left school at 07:15 with ten excited cadets on route to RAF Cosford for the school’s and the CCF’s First Flying experience.

On arriving at RAF Cosford we were taken to the briefing room where the cadets received a safety brief, watched a safety video and practised putting on the parachute.

We dressed to impress – flying suits, helmets, gloves and their aviator sunglasses. After waiting for the temperature to get above zero, the first two were Airborne into the beautiful blue skies.

Everyone had a fantastic time and could not stop talking about this fantastic experience and they are looking forward to the next flying day.

If you have any questions about joining CCF please speak to Miss Faulkner or Mr Norton.
