Carol Vorderman a new Group Captain

Wasn’t he a WO1 previously in the Army? Interesting to take a demotion when re-joining with the RAF.

That would be excellent !

Al Murray gets my vote. Get piece on BBC Breakfast this morning on the Dambusters.

Understands many things :+1:

Bruce Dickenson would be a popular. An aviator, owns aviation related businesses and would make band camp much more interesting for may.

He is already an honorary Gp Capt in the RAF (according to Wikipedia) :saluting_face:

Indeed! See @Otto_Lilienthal’s post!

Lets have Tom Cruise :sunglasses: after all he already knows about cadets and offered the King to be his Wingman


Also he’s a serious aviator.

I mean, I know it’s fantasy-land, crazy talk, but…

Imagine we had a cadet experience so good, and a comms team/culture to showcase it, that we didn’t need band-aid solutions like dressing celebs up in fancy uniforms and Ruritanian ranks in the hope that some of their glamour might rub off on us…

Obviously I’m half-cut, so just ignore this deranged stuff.

I’ve always admired the Cadet Division of the Civil Air Patrol (sort of ATC equivalent if you ignore JROTC/ROTC). They seem to have a lot of publicity around all their activities and “missions” in disaster relief etc.

BBC One, 9pm for fans of the ‘ambassador’.

Talking about appropriate people for an ambassador role, what about this person?

She’s a currently serving Royal Navy commando going through pilot training. Despite being a naval officer she’s in the aviation sector, and having overcome an eating disorder she’s now a triathlete, one of the only women to have passed the commando course and is all about inspiring people to overcome challenges.

Seems quite well suited🤔

Great role model - but I suspect that as she is already a serving officer, somewhat of a conflict to be given (Hon) Gp Capt rank!
