615 has continued a strong operational performance throughout the summer, taking advantage of the (mostly!) good weather and longer days. Already this year, 615 has provided over 500 Gliding Induction Courses to cadets from across London and the South East of England, and delivered over 50 Gliding Scholarship courses to trainees from all over the country. We hope to continue this strong performance in towards the less predictable Autumn and Winter months, and look forward to seeing your unit or squadron down at RAF Kenley soon!
The end has come to a very successful GS course at RAF Kenley. Great weather for most of the week allowed for excellent progress for all. The 12 GS trainees who arrived 9 days ago have gone solo, and 3 staff cadets have completed their Advanced Glider Training (AGT). Added to this, a new G2 was awarded today to CGI John Harrison.
