RAF Air Cadet wins Aim High scholarship

A 2328 (Bishop’s Cleeve) Squadron cadet sergeant recently won a place on an exciting week with the Fly2Help charity at Gloucestershire Airport.  Aim High ( is its education programme that “helps young people learn about the world of aviation and gain confidence and a belief in themselves” at Biggin Hill, Gloucestershire, Luton and Oxford airports.

The 2328 Squadron cadet sergeant explains how Aim High helped: “I attended the October Fly2help week and it was an extremely interesting and enlightening experience into the careers of many in the aviation industry. Throughout the week we attended a tour of Gloucestershire Airport, visited Rolls Royce, had a flying experience, visited RAF Brize Norton, had a talk from a TUI pilot and a Dowty engineer and much more. It was extremely helpful in gaining information on a career path in aviation and I got an insight into the day to day experience of this. While there I met 9 other aviation enthusiasts and shared this week with them, which was lovely to meet others with the same interests. We were hosted by the lovely Kim Davenport who organises this week twice a year with a range of activities and trips and to anyone interested in anything linked to an aviation career this week was a must.”
