Air Cadets take-off at the Flying Show

Cadets and staff from the Warwickshire & Birmingham Wing were on hand to tell everyone how to take-off as a member of the Air Cadet Organisation during the UK's largest indoor lightweight aviation exhibition.

The Flying Show, which is organised by the British Microlight Aircraft Association (BMAA), is an annual event held at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, which attracts both experienced pilots and those new to the world of flying.

Thanks to the generous invitation by the organisers, and the success of the wings efforts at last year's show, members of Warwickshire & Birmingham Wing were once again given their own stand at the show.

The air cadet team, supported by Flight Lieutenant Paul Hincks OC 121 (Nuneaton), Squadron had an extremely busy two days at the NEC, with a constant flow of enquiries from people of all ages. Many of the visitors were interested to know just what the Air Cadet Organisation was all about and in many cases, how they could get involved.

As the show drew to a close, Flight Lieutenant Paul Hincks said: I think that the majority of the enquiries I faced at the show were from prospective adult staff, many of whom had a wealth of flying experience and a genuine passion for encouraging young people to take up an interest in aviation. Once again it's been an excellent event, we've seen interest from many prospective recruits. I think the Flying Show is something we as the air cadets should continue to be involved with.
