May I introduce myself as Flight Lieutenant Emma Smyth RAFVR(T). I have been with 85 (Enfield and Southgate)
Squadron for nearly 8 years. I worked my way up from joining as a Civilian Instructor, applying for my Commission, being the Training Officer for many year
s and now up to the Commanding Officer. In my day job, I am a secondary school teacher.
We are one of many Air Cadet Squadrons around the UK and are based in Enfield Town and Winchmore Hill, London. We meet twice a week and have a thriving Squadron; we currently have 60 Cadets on the books with a regular turn out of over 40. We are directed by Head Quarters Air Cadets based at RAF Cranwell and have many directives, orders and training syllabuses to follow from them; we primarily have an interest to promote and foster aviation amongst young people. As a Squadron, we take part in as many activities as possible including the Duke of Edinburgh Award, drill, flying and gliding, adventurous training, sports, music (we have our own marching band) and much, much more.
