Promotions at 51 (Orton) Squadron.

Three Air Cadets from 51 (Orton) Squadron have reached new heights in their Air Cadet career, having recently been promoted to the rank of Sergeant and Flight Sergeant.

Two loyal cadets were recently recognised for their hard work and dedication to the Squadron. Corporal Patrick Wells and Corporal Conor Wells were promoted to the rank of Sergeant.

Air Cadet Rank

The promotions were as a result of these two corporals consistently working hard in all areas of the ATC from leadership exercises, to taking on more duties on a parade night to being regular attendees at weekend events. The Wells brothers have both attended 51 (Orton) Squadron from the age of 13 and have grown within the corps and are well respected members of the squadron. Sergeant Patrick Wells said "Air Cadets has been an important part of my life for the past 5 years and this promotion is an honour to have been awarded it. It was great to have received it at the same time as my brother."

Whilst a third Air Cadet, Sergeant Logan Robinett, was promoted to the rank of Flight Sergeant. Flight Sergeant Robinett joined 51 (Orton) Squadron at the age of thirteen and has successfully progressed not only to one of the top cadet ranks but also received his highest classification award of Instructor Cadet.

FS Robinett has been an active member of the Squadron from competing in First Aid competitions and receiving the third national individual position and being a member of the team who came 2nd at the Inter cadet First Aid to attending adventure training camps and helping the younger cadets with their development by teaching Radio Communications amongst other topics.

Flight Sergeant Robinett said "I am very proud to have been promoted and I hope and will certainly try to do my best for the squadron. My main focus now is to help younger cadets to achieve all they can through the ATC and to enjoy it as much as I have."
