Senior Aircraftsman (SAC) Cameron Nicholson joined the service in 2014 after being a cadet with the 861 (Wideopen) Squadron since the age of 13.

Following initial training at RAF Halton, he progressed to train as a technician at No.1 Radio School at RAF Cosford, learning how to meet the force’s complex communication, computer and detection system needs.

He graduated with merit and has been posted to RAF Leeming, but he still works as a service instructor at the cadets.

He said: “The RAF air cadets really helped to prepare me for my career in the RAF and made my basic training period much easier to handle. I really enjoy working with the cadets as service instructor as I can continue to support the squadron that I grew up with.”
