Congratulations to cadets on passing their Leading Cadet classification

Well done to Cpl N, Cdt W and Cdt R on being the latest to pass their Leading Cadet classifications. Took a while to finish off exams but ultimately it's nice to get badges and certificates come through, and special mention to Cdt W on taking initiative and being the first to complete (a while ago).

Leading cadet classification comes after First Class and is focused on learning 3 core subjects: Principles of Flight, Basic Navigation with Map and Compass, and Airmanship Knowledge.
