‘As a result of the close and long standing connection between the Rotary Club of Wolverhampton and RAF Cosford, we were able to arrange for 2 Alumni from the Rotary Young Leaders Awards (RYLA) course, Oliver Hall and Jack Fawcett-Enright, who are keen to join the RAF, to have a meeting with the Station Commander, Group Captain Baker and Station Warrant Officer Hagan.
Oliver and Jack were given a first hand insight into life in the RAF and the opportunities presented by a service career, together with some excellent advice as to how to go about fulfilling their ambitions. Oliver wants to be a pilot, flying the RAF’s large transport aircraft, while Jack is interested in becoming an IT or engineering specialist. Both Oliver and Jack said they were thrilled by the meeting and gained a tremendous benefit by being given the chance to meet the senior RAF Officers, the meeting having been arranged by PDG Richard Green from the club.
The meeting was followed by a behind the scenes tour of RAF Cosford, during which the boys were given the chance to get up close and personal with a Jaguar fighter jet aircraft.’
