Visit from ex-cadet Pilot Officer Lamb

1414 welcomed ex-cadet Pilot Officer Tom Lamb onto the squadron as he discussed being part of a University Air Squadron, his progression since leaving the RAFAC and potential development routes into the Royal Air Force.

Pilot Officer Lamb was a cadet at 1414 and undoubtedly made the most of his experience! He progressed through the rank structure to Flight Sergeant, attended annual camps such as RAF Leeming, took part in Wing Band, and many more activities.

Since leaving the RAFAC, he has joined Southampton University Air Squadron in order to complete a degree, continue flying and progress into the Royal Air Force. 

Southampton University Air Squadron

SUAS is made up of 7 permanent staff which supports a student membership of 75. Each year approximately 35 students are recruited from different universities. The Squadron’s Flying Headquarters and Town Headquarters are located at MoD Boscombe Down, near Salisbury in Wiltshire.

SUAS conducts training on topics that range from Air Power and current RAF Operations to leadership, current affairs and public speaking.

UAS flying takes place Monday – Friday but there are additional flying camps over Easter, Christmas and the summer.

There are also opportunities for sport and adventurous training expeditions throughout the year which can include skiing, mountain biking, canoeing, rock climbing and sailing.
