March Training Programme

Things happening this month:
  • We welcome our new recruits into the Squadron and wish them all well as they begin their initial training including lessons on the history and structure of our organisation, the ranks and badges that are part of our uniform as well as practical elements of drill and saluting.

  • The Main Squadron will be running through some short drill sequences to assess the general standard across the unit and so that a drill team can be selected to take forward to the Wing Training Day in July.

  • Modelling and Media groups are also working hard towards the Training Day by preparing the required diorama and individual aircraft models and publishing media reports on our current events.
  • Wed 19 - Royal Aeronautical Engineering Society Lecture at Coventry University. This Month's talk is entitled "The Rolls-Royce 1000 Trent Powered Boeing 787 Dreamliner - In Service" presented by an executive at Rolls-Royce. Sign up on the Events Board.

  • The First Aid group are working hard toward completing their Youth First Aid Assessments scheduled for Sunday 23 Mar (normal parade hours). There will be an extra session on Sat 22 Mar 1400-1630 to allow extra practice of those all important rescue skills. 
  • Those selected for the IWT Weekend 14-16 March will receive further details for travel to DTE Nesscliffe in due course. The Kit list has been issued and emailed to all involved.
