Being in the ATC has given me many opportunities to do amazing activities I would not usually get the chance to do, one of these being gliding.
On the 4th of April 2013, I was given the opportunity to visit RAF Odiham and glide in the Vigilant. I had to wake up at 0600hrs, as I was expected to be at 173 Orpington Squadron at 0730hrs, which killed me. However I thoroughly enjoyed my day, and realise the painfully early start was all worthwhile. I met lots of new people, and even got to see old friends too.
