A senior instructor from 645 VGS at RAF Topcliffe has today realised his dreams for a career as a professional pilot.
Today we learned that Flt Lt Jordan Cameron who is an A2* instructor has successfully passed his commercial pilots licence (CPL). After a lot of hard work and determination he is now following his dream to become an airline pilot.
He is one of many instructors to progress to become a commercial pilot with airlines. Instructors have gone on to fly for Easyjet, Jet2 , CityJet and Cathay Pacific. This shows that the level of training provided to our instructors and the quality of flying our instructors demonstrate is of high standards and quality.
Jordan who is an ex 35 (Wetherby) sqn cadet has been one of the senior instructors with 645 VGS for a number of years. He has given so many cadets and instructors their first steps towards their cadet flying careers and in some cases their first steps towards professional flying. It’s now Jordan time to follow his dreams and this news has proven that if you follow your heart and passion for aviation then those dreams can be reality.
Flt Lt Jordan Cameron said “It has been a long and arduous journey for me - I don’t come from a wealthy family so going to flightschool straight after college wasn’t an option. I put all my efforts into the Air Cadets and my job. I saved every penny I could and took as many flying opportunities as I could - Now here I am. Stay focussed, work hard and take every opportunity you can within the Air Cadets. The flying training I received and now deliver is second to none and will give you a great head start, in a professional or military flying career”
Sqn Ldr Aaron O’Roarty said “All of the instructors, staff and staff cadets at 645 VGS would like to take this opportunity to say well done and congratulations to him. We are very proud of him and wish him the very best of luck as it is exciting times ahead”.
Well done Jordan!
