Cadet Wotherspoon from 613 Alton Squadron took to the skies today for the first time with 2 AEF based at Boscombe Down.
Cadet Wotherspoon says it was a really eye opening experiences where she saw flying from a different angle. Cadet Wotherspoon was able to take control of the Grob Tutor from the pilot for a while where she was able to experience the real feel of how to fly an aircraft. After the flight the Pilot asked Cadet Wotherspoon what she would like to do in the future and whether flying was now on the cards. After this flight it definitely is!
Cadet Wotherspoon said that it was one of the highlights of her year and encourages all young people to look further than the horizon.
