Cadet Flight Sergeant Katie Dickson from 1220 (March) Squadron has successfully completed a solo flight after she was selected as a winner of a 12-hour scholarship.

She was unable to complete her training in December due to bad weather but returned to Dundee to fly the aircraft herself in a solo circuit of the airfield.

Katie said “It was such a weird feeling to look at the seat beside me and see no-one there. I’ve been waiting a long time for this opportunity, and I won’t be forgetting it any time soon!”

The Air Cadet Pilot Scheme is a prestigious scholarship awarded to cadets. 1220 has had four winners since 2010.
