Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wing Air Cadets
Navigation Training Day
On Saturday 27th April cadets from 2412 (Bordon & District) Sqn spent the day out and about in the Hampshire Countryside undergoing Navigation Training with C.I Trish Shaw and S/Sgt Chris McFarlane (REME) in preparation for their Duke of Edinburgh Award Expedition later on this year.
All the cadets had to navigate through a pre-planned training area taking turns to navigate and lead the team using skills learned during their classification training.
C.I Shaw said 'it is important that all cadets get the opportunity to use these skills out in the countryside. It puts it all into perspective for them'.
Cdt Drury said 'We could not have asked for a better day to learn such essential skills. The weather was fantastic and the staff made it so much fun. We are all looking forward to completing our DOE this year'.
