A staff cadet sergeant from 1094 Ely squadron has been awarded an air cadet pilot scheme flying scholarship.
Jake Bausor found out the good news on February 24.
In September last year, Jake received his silver gliding wings having completed a gliding scholarship at RAF Syerston.
Now, the flying scholarship will help him to qualify for his private pilot’s licence.
A spokesperson for the squadron said: “The ACPS flying scholarship allows air cadets like Jake to attend the Tayside aviation flying school in Dundee.
“If the cadets are successful, they’ll go solo in light aircraft allowing them to subsequently qualify for their private pilot's licence.
This year’s flying scholarship courses begin in Scotland in April.
