Flight Path Protection Team Visit 84 Squadron

Air Cadets from 84 (Coventry Airport) Squadron were visited by Flight Path Protection Team, based at Birmingham Airport for an evening presentation

PCs Mitchell Granger and Ian Powell met staff and cadets at a local open day event held at the Coventry Aero Club earlier in 2013 and a visit was arranged for the team to present their work to the cadets and give an insight into a different aspect of the aviation world. Cadets were treated to an interactive presentation from both PCs Granger and Powell followed by a question & answer session. One lucky cadet, Joshua Evans, aged 13, was selected to help demonstrate some of the equipment the team are striving to prevent being used in attacks on in coming and out-going flights at Birmingham International Airport.
