Cadet to commercial pilot

03 Sep 2018

A former air cadet and now senior instructor from 645 VGS at RAF Topcliffe has today accomplished his dreams for a career as a professional pilot.

Flight Lieutenant Jordan Cameron who is an A2* instructor has successfully passed his commercial pilots license (CPL) and is now following his dream to become an airline pilot.

Jordan is one of many instructors to progress to become a commercial pilot with airlines. Many other RAFAC Instructors have gone on to fly for Easyjet, Jet2, CityJet and Cathay Pacific which 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 a former cadet from 35 (Wetherby) Squadron, has been one of the senior instructors with 645 VGS for a number of year and has given many cadets and instructors their first steps towards their cadet flying careers, which 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 flight school 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 focused, 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”

Squadron Leader 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”.
