Year 13 student Nick C has finished first in a gruelling UK-wide Air Cadet Pilot Scheme.

The scheme involves 200 students each year, with participants spending two weeks in Dundee to complete 12 hours of flying.

The Air Cadets is a nationwide organisation which provides young people with opportunities to take part in adventure activities, sport, ceremonial drill, flying and a wide range of other activities.

Nick (17), is Flight Sergeant at 2181 Ilminster Squadron and has been attending since he was 12 years old.

“I really enjoyed the experience and I learnt a lot”, Nick said.
