Eleven cadets from 2328 (Bishops Cleeve) Squadron were recently hosted by the A400M Training Services Department at RAF Brize Norton where aircrews and ground crews prepare to work on one of the Royal Air Force’s latest aircraft. The cadets rotated through three sections to learn about the Airbus A400M.
These sections included the flight simulator where the cadets experienced taxiing, take off and flying in various conditions. Cadets also visited the classroom where technicians are trained to maintain the aircraft. They also went inside a full size A400M fuselage to learn how the aircraft is loaded and the role played by the loadmaster. Rear doors were closed and stretchers were fixed in place so the cadets could appreciate how casualties can be transported.
The cadets really appreciated the efforts of their hosts in putting on a truly educational and very memorable visit.
