In the Commons earlier today, 19th October, Michael Fabricant mentioned the 1206 Air Training Corps which is based in Lichfield. In a question to the Defence Minister who has responsibility for Cadets, Hansard reports:-
Michael Fabricant (Lichfield) (Con):
I was recently appointed president of the 1206 Mercian air cadet squadron. Will my hon. Friend let me and, more to the point, the air cadets know what further opportunities there might be for them to obtain flying experience with the Royal Air Force?
Mr Brazier: I congratulate my hon. Friend on his position. We are extremely keen to improve opportunities for flying. We currently have a recovery programme, following the temporary suspension of the gliding programme. I share his enthusiasm, as I too have an air cadet force in my constituency.
Michael adds “The 1206 is one of the most successful Air Training Corps in the midlands. I am proud to be its President and that it is based in Lichfield.”
