100th Military Flying Training System (MFTS) student graduates at RAF College Cranwell

Earlier this week, Flying Officer James Bell became the 100th student to complete Elementary Flying Training (EFT) on the Prefect. After debriefing his Final Handling Test, he was congratulated by his instructor, Officer Commanding 57 Squadron, Squadron Leader Mike Waring, on a successful sortie. The mixed-profile sortie consisted of General Handling, Navigation and Instrument Flying around north Lincolnshire and the Trent valley, including a practice diversion into RAF Coningsby.

Flying Officer Bell will now be selected for either Multi Engine, Rotary or Fast-Jet training as the next stage of MFTS training, on his journey to earn his pilot wings, and progress to the front line.
