Kyle Boyes, Samuel Maw, Ryan Fort, Lewis Coupe, Aiden Taylor are now ranked as ‘First Class Cadets’ after passing their exams.
Flt Lt Vicky Williamson said: “The intake worked extremely hard and formed a tight bond as a team. Without exception they all performed very well and should be very proud of what they achieved, they are a credit to the squadron.”
To mark the end of their training the recruits were on parade in front of the squadron and awarded their badges, certificates and formally enrolled as cadets.
The y will now be able to take part in activities including flying, target shooting, first aid training and the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
