We decided after weeks of the hot weather that we needed to cool off, So a water fight it was... it was also an excuse to check out the new GoPro camera's durability. We do need some more training on it, as for the whole of the water balloon fight a Cadet was videoing.. well she thought she was. So this is just a taste of the evening.
In July we were invited to the Runcorn Fire Station by Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service. Here's what happened...
We should of took spare clothes...
On the 10th July 2018 cadets underwent training and a range day (evening) with a Bow and Arrow. A big thanks to Mr Kirkham for running the range.
Cadets and Staff from 306 Royal Air Force Air Cadets joined up with the Runcorn Veterans Association to help with the WW1 48hr Trench Challenge, Cycling, Rowing and Walking for charity.
On 27th April 2018, Officer’s, Staff and Cadets of 306 (Runcorn) Sqn RAFAC unveiled their new state of the art flight simulator.

Amongst the guests invited to the opening ceremony was David Keane PCC for Cheshire, Insp Fez Khan from Runcorn Local Policing unit and Station Manager Stuart Devereux from Runcorn fire station, Squadron civilian committee members who helped to raise funds for flight sim were also present.
The flight sim will be used by cadets to learn basic aircraft controls and handling before they take to the skies in one of the RAF’s Tutor training aircraft. We are also fortunate enough to have 2 qualified pilots as staff members who will teach the cadets how to fly using the simulator.
Cadets also prepared and delivered a short demonstration of activities they can take part in for the guest to get a better understanding of what the RAFAC has to offer young people within the community.
The RAFAC is open to any young person aged 12 (in year 8 of school) and 18; 306 Sqn is based on Crown Gate Barracks in Runcorn, opposite the Royal Mail sorting office near to Runcorn Shopping City and meets on Tuesday and Friday evenings 7pm-9.30pm
