Youngsters from the 2nd March Beaver Scouts visited Chatteris airfield to learn more about aviation.

They were doing their Air Activities Level 2 Badge.

Chatteris-based pilot and scout leader Chris St John taught them what the controls of the aircraft did.

They also learned about aviation maps and aircraft radios and all got a chance to sit in an Ikarus C-42, the type of aircraft used for training new pilots, and try it out for size.
