Wye School Maiden Voyage

This week our Combined Cadet Forces had an unforgettable experience at the gliding club in Headcorn. The cadets learned how to wear a parachute; how to attach a steel wire to the glider to prepare for their winch launch; how to keep the wings levelled during the launch, before flying up the air and looking down over Wye, Ashford and Canterbury without hearing any motor engine. Wye School is especially proud of those cadets who were initially scared about this challenge but overcame their fear of flying in order to enjoy this wonderful adventure.
