Thought I’d give a short update on the Squadron after 4 months.
We started with 89 cadets and have dropped to 83 cadets at this point. Staffing has remained constant.
New HQ will be complete in March - looking good.
Everything is going pretty well, it’s been hard work for the staff, particularly the uniformed staff, but things have calmed down now, and we have planned our programme until March now. Our programme up to Jan has been a mix of core training and other activities designed to get the squadron to have a “one team feeling”, which seems to have worked well. Our programme from January is very much more structured and reflects how the programme will be going forward. We will be recruiting for a training flight in January - and have 32 cadets on the waiting list.
Our Cadet Warrant Officers and Senior Cadet NCOs have been exceptional, and have supported the staff at every stage.
All in all, things are going very well, and we couldn’t have asked for a better start. Looking forward to 2019.
