Second week of the month of April and the squadron gathers again for safety, aerospace, drill and flight time at the Mt Airy Senior and Community Center. The safety lesson demonstrated the use of rubber gloves and how to remove them when contaminated. Avoiding the use of ketchup, too realistic, the use of mustard was employed to test the practice.
The cadets continue on the path to Rocketry Badge achievement. Last month, the rubber band powered rocket was assembled and launched. This week, the pop-bottle rocket was assembled, no time for launch.
Flight time and drill were observed. The meeting was concluded with the presentation of two Wright Brothers Awards. Staff Sergeant Mitch Walker recently achieved his rank in March and Cadet Senior Master Sergeant Ashley Pitt achieved her rank in October 2016.
