The Annual RAF Charitable Trust Award for Flying Excellence was awarded to Mike Eager, whilst he was a Cadet Warrant Officer at 229 Sqn. Although the award was made last year, the news has only recently been published—you can see an article about Mike in the 2011 RAF Year Book.
The Trophy is awarded annually by the Charitable Trust to the top performing Air Cadet who, in the opinion of the Air Cadet Organisation, has shown both outstanding flying ability and personal qualities.
Mike is hoping to become an RAF pilot and is currently at RAF College Cranwell.
The picture shows Mike receiving his award from Sir John Cheshire. An inspiration for other 229 cadets perhaps?
