This year, at RAF Brize Norton, the Blue Skies programme was organised by Sqn Ldr Jakubowski and his team of volunteers from across Station. The programme began in January and the activities have included low ropes, aircraft simulator rides, carrying out medical scenarios, and orienteering to name but a few.

"The Jon Egging Trust provides our students with opportunities in addition to the curriculum.  JET encourages children to be proud and brave and to attempt things which they find challenging. We are extremely proud of the hard work of our students and I'd like to congratulate them on their graduation today."
