Squadron Leader Martin Pert, Red 1 and Team Leader of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, has this message for cadets and volunteers during COVID-19...
He said: “Many of the Red Arrows pilots and wider team were air cadets during their teenage years.
“It’s a fantastic organisation which provides young people with so many chances to build crucial life skills and gain amazing experiences.
“Even while undertaking distancing measures, working as a team - to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds - is a key aim of the Red Arrows.
“That theme is never more important than now, when everyday life feels very different.
“Hopefully all cadets and their leaders can help inspire and support one another, albeit remotely.
“I know many RAFAC squadrons are staging virtual meetings and providing digital resources - what a great way to stay involved and feel part of the RAF family.”
