WING SHOOT - RAF HONINGTON

A cold day was spent on the range, with Beds & Cambs Wing cadets firing the cadet L98A2 "service" rifle.

As before, they shot the new progressive "Cadet Live Firing" syllabus, which entailed moving from lesson to (higher category) lesson. From 104 Sqn, Cadet Flight Sergeant David Bell (who held the highest level category marksmanship badge under the old system) shot very well; the picture shows his 3 groups (from left to right) for prone, sitting & kneeling positions. Zoom in on the picture - the groups are very small!

VISIT TO 614 VGS

Another day, another activity. Four cadets from 104 Sqn visited 614 Volunteer Gliding Squadron at Weathersfield near Braintree, Essex.

The cadets practised their flying skills in the Viking glider "Part Task Trainer" (PTT). The aim of the PTT is to demonstrate the Viking flying characteristics so that cadets can learn the initial skills for gliding - & then put them into effect.

Lessons about aerodynamics are coupled with the practical aspects, culminating in circuit flying & landings.

In the future, when the cadets then conduct air experience flying or actual gliding, they can be awarded their blue badge, the first in the progressive aviation syllabus.

BEDS & CAMBS WING SHOOT

In unusually warm weather, cadets from the Wing attended a shoot at RAF Honington, to fire the L98A2 cadet "service" rifle.

CI Mike Jenvey (104 Sqn) assisted as one of the coaches & safety supervisors.

The cadets shot the new progressive "Cadet Live Firing" syllabus, but at the end of the day, some of the staff managed a very quick shoot. "Quick" in this case for CI Jenvey was 6 shots rapid fire in 6 secs, with just over a one inch group. Not bad indeed!

Cadets at 104 Sqn start their shooting on the indoor air rifle range before progressing to other types of shooting.
