422 (Corby) Squadron Royal Air Force Air Cadet, Corpora (Cpl)l Eve Pavitt has recently returned from one of the toughest courses the Air Cadet Organisation has to offer; the Air Cadet Leadership Course.
Cpl Pavitt spent a week at Royal Air Force College Cranwell, the home of Officer training in the Royal Air Force, learning all about what it takes to be a leader.
The course which runs over seven packed days of fieldcraft training, command tasks and navigation training, with inspections and interviews along the way, really puts the cadets to the test.
At the culmination of the course, a parade and presentation ceremony was held in front of course staff, parents and the Air Officer Commanding 22 (Training) Group, Air Vice-Marshal Andrew Turner CBE MA MSc BA FRAeS FCMI RAF.
Throughout the week Cpl Pavitt, who was in charge of a Flight for the final parade and the Deputy for the whole course, gave her all and her efforts really paid off with being awarded a merit overall.
Flight Lieutenant Kev Ritchie RAFVR(T) said “What an outstanding achievement and one Cpl Pavitt should be really proud of. Courses like these really do put the cadets to the test and to come away with a merit is no mean feat. Well done Cpl Pavitt”.
