Unfortunately, the weather was not good enough to fly aerobatic manoeuvres, but the cadets managed to fly in the circuit to experience take off and landings.

For youngsters aged 12 (in Year 8 at school) to 18 wishing to join, the local ATC Squadron meets at Birch Road in Louth on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7pm to 9.15pm
