All Sections Air Activities Evening

On Thursday 11th November 2021, we were lucky enough to have a visit from retiring former Red Arrows pilot Oliver, who shared his experiences and knowledge with children across all four sections for them to achieve their Air Activites badges.


The children

  • made paper aeroplanes of varying technicality
  • translated messaged from and into the phonetic alphabet
  • used virtual reality to explore different aeroplanes
  • identified tail fins of commercial air liners from written descriptions
  • learned about several types of military aircraft
  • used a remote controlled model of a Red Arrow to identify major flight control surfaces


At the end of the evening Oliver presented each child with the appropriate badge- the Beavers receiving stage 1, the cubs: stage 2, the Scouts: stage 3 and the Explorer: stage 4.
