1st Chiseldon Air Scout Group takes to the air!

Our Scouts troop in Chisledon is no ordinary scouts pack, it is an Air Scouts Group. That means that not only do they do all the adventurous activities that ordinary scouts do, they also get to fly.

On 16th June, some of our own sons and daughters went on an Air Experience Weekend, based at Lower Upham Airfield. One the first day, they learnt the basics of flight theory and navigation. On the second day, thanks to the generosity of many local pilots (who donated their own planes, at their own time and expense) our budding pilots took to the air, to put their navigation into practice. Then, with expert guidance, they got their hands on the controls as well.

Many envious mums and dads collected their tired but very happy Scouts after the event, and a great time was had by all.
