HONITON: Harry gets his wings
Tuesday, 24 June 2014
A Honiton Air Cadet has earned his Grade One Pilot wings and become a qualified RAF motor glider pilot. Cadet Warrant Officer Harry Neve, who aims to become an RAF pilot, is now able to fly fellow cadets on gliding induction courses, a scheme for younger cadets to teach them the basics of flying. For some cadets, these flights will be their first time flying. Flt Lt Justin Felice RAFVR(T) said: “Harry learned to fly through the air cadets for no cost by being selected for a gliding scholarship, which he did with 624 Volunteer Gliding Squadron at Royal Marines Base Chivenor, near Barnstaple. “He went on to become a member of staff at the Gliding Squadron and continued his training with no cost to him, mustering more than 40 hours of flying both with instructors and solo. “Harry is also going to be travelling to Dundee in July to undertake a further prestigious scholarship, The Air Cadet Pilot Scheme, which is offered to those air cadets who have so far excelled in their flying careers and teaches cadets to fly a light aircraft to solo standard. “Air Cadets have opportunities to go flying and gliding amongst other activities, for free from joining at age 13. Anyone interested in joining the Air Training Corps as a cadet or a member of staff should contact 1064 Honiton squadron by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone 01404 43286.
