At the end of November 2014, 42F (King’s Lynn) Squadron Air Training Corps’ 18 year old Cadet Sergeant Jack Savage gained his powered flying ‘Wings’ following a course run by Tayside Aviation at Dundee airport. Jack went solo in a Grob Tutor light aircraft after only eight hours of intensive training.
Although already proudly wearing his wings insignia on his uniform, on Thursday 12thMarch, he was formally presented with his Air Cadet Pilot Scheme certificate in front of his fellow cadets.
Norfolk & Suffolk Wing ATC’s Commanding Officer, Wing Commander David Miller, visiting the King’s Lynn Squadron’s headquarters said he was very pleased to be able to present the certificate. He then took the opportunity to instil in the assembled cadets that Jack’s fantastic achievement was also within the reach of any Air Cadet who had a desire to learn to fly.
