On average twice a month, four cadets will get the chance to go flying at RAF Leeming in North Yorkshire. While the cadets are up in the air, they get the chance to try some aerobatics and take control of the aircraft. The aircraft we use is the Grob Tutor, a single engine aircraft.
Serving RAF pilots will be alongside the cadets while they are in the aircraft and they often get to experience aerobatics, and sometimes carry them out themselves! There are many types of aerobatics, e.g. loops, barrel rolls, stall turns and Cuban 8′s.
You can also take flying further by applying for a flying scholarship where you learn to fly the aircraft by yourself, but first you need to complete a gliding scholarship and be aged 16 or over.
