Flt Lt Mark Richards said "these appointments have allowed me to strengthen the Cadet NCO team at the Squadron and are great additions to an already effective and high calibre NCO team. The promotions were a tough decision due to the strength and quality of those who applied and subsequently went through the promotion boards. Congratulations to those who have been promoted, they truly have earned their new ranks and the additional faces to the Cadet NCO team will allow the team to go from strength to strength, well done to all involved".
